I'm an Introvert. I would never go to a club or bar on my own. Why subject myself to people who won't affect me? I can talk to people one on one easily, It's great hordes of people that bother me. I rarely say things unless I feel I have a reason to say it. For example look to the left: You see my number of posts? I've less than most of the other vets, this is because during discussions I won't bother to say anything unless I have somthing to add. I can't just repeat what someone else has said in different words and feel like its a discussion. Yet I check the forums multiple times a day and read it all. I'm here, I just lurk till I'm needed (Remember just like stake I'm always watching). I actually have to force myself to reinforce other people's opinions, somtimes it's just so ray knows more than one person agrees with it.
My cousin once dragged me to a party. I followed him around like a lost puppy and when he left me alone I stood awkwardly in the corner till I decided to leave early. It was noisy, (There is a point where music stops being music when it's too loud) It was full of people I didn't know or care about and it was a waste of time. I like (some) people, I don't like crowds; I like music but I don't like noise. I could spend hours discussing philosophy or debating somthing with you, but I can't just talk for the sake of doing so. I think an important question to ask here is: Does silence make you uncomfortable when you're around people?
