are you a loner type person or an extrovert/social type in the real world?

what i love being human is that i am unique as an - the photo shows friends hugging and posting to be phtographed they seems to be happy in their smile and that they are excited. i hope i have many many friends but i prefer to have friends that are really true. that's what i think.

lets face is. i know in mylot everybody are friendly and tries to respond and share their ideas to friends or co mylotters but are you the same person in the real world. what i mean are you really approachable,friendly or the person that talks and share a lot in conversations or the timid type gu, very serious, does not start any discussion or just reply very shortly and direct to the point? as for me, im a very quiet and shy person in the real world i dont talk al ot i dont know because im not confident in doing it. funny, but i really cannot converse straight english directly when it comes to vocal conversation unlike here inm just tpying whats inside my mind? so are you an introvert or an extrovert person in the real world or the real you?

I am a writer, not a talker. However, I have no fear of talking to strangers --I am the one who always asks the salesperson--- but that is because I am not going to see them. I am not an extrovert, nor am I an introvert. I am a meditrovert. (I just invented a new word!!!!), that is, I am in between the two. I used to be timid, but that is because I was got snapped at when I opened my mouth, so I first developed a "well if a bridge is out, I am not going to tell you," until I realized that they were not my father, and in a way, I am a bit cautious, and do not share intimate information unless I am sure they will not recognize me if they meet me on the street. I reply to discussions and do go into details, but that is because if I do not, not much cash comes in.

I suffer from severe clinical depression,so it is very difficult for me to get to know people and talk to them. once I get to know someone,and I find the internet a great place to meet them,I am then much better at meeting them in person and able to be open with them.

having that condition ithink you have limit when it comes with emotional feelings especially when we talk about the negative emotion that could worsen your condition. what i can say my friend is try to be more positive thinker and when you know if soething or someone can make you upset and can trigger your deprression avoid it. choose your friend if you know their characteristic and someday they may hurt you then i guess avoid them. yes the internet is a great place whre you meet and get to know some people before meeting them personally.its a good idea.thanks for responding mac.

I am in between. I can be extrovert to people I think are friendly, but not to those who are not. So I think that I am quite influenced by the people around me.

I am mostly an introvert, but not as much as when I was younger. I don't mind spending time alone, but I enjoy my family and friends, too, and like to get to know new people. I am usually uncomfortable in a crowd of people that I don't know well, but I try to be friendly.

i am also an introvert person. i dont know but im really not too friendly to people i met although i try my best to be friendly to them but end up failing to establish it usually. maybe because im choosy in the real life with what friends i want to but this is only in the real world. if i dont like the attitude of a person then i dont hook up that much but i like introvert persons too so we can be freinds jill.

Hi Joshboz, I need both either for extrovert or introvert and I will cycle it depends on the situation around me. The most is to make the conversation into fruitful happening. Let say, I'm talking to you, you take introvert, so I have to take extrovert but I must bear in my mind not to hurts you even on jokes mood. It plays vice-versa to me and just twist and turn of my tongue. In the real world I'm more on the extrovert category. There many advantages of both, either introvert and extrovert side. If you feeling shy, easy josh, you must have many girlfriends. Let say 20 in hand. Just do the talking to them as your practice to be more on the extrovert side. Have jokes and must have more idioms, because idioms are the concise and precise to make our listener to understand as a conclusion to our talking. Happy Posting to you, Joshboz. :::michael:::

thank you for responding dearest friend. yes ithink a normal and wise person must possess both attitude my problem is i am introvert and very faithful with my only ever girlfriend.i guess i cannot have as many as 20 girlfriends too fool with my flowering phrases and pledge of emotions. i guess the term for having both introvert and extrovert attitude is flexibility and its good you have it because as for me i am more on the introvert side whatever the situation is and that's not good. good day to you here in mylot dear friend

shy - I am more of the quiet, shy type of person
I am more of the introvert, shy type of person. I don't normally start a conversation but I am very approachable. That is, if a stranger starts a conversation with me, I am responsive and friendly. I can also be quite a loner. I am perfectly comfortable doing things by myself like waching a movie or a basketball game, going to the mall, or even traveling.

we are the same my friend and i believe birds of the same feather flocks together. you know what wise dragon everything you said is also what i am comfortable with.no kidding. im more on the introvert side, i am responsive and smile to stranger that start a conversation and i dont like to start the conversation. i also find comfort when i watch movie alone,eat alone, review alone and i can survive at home for a week just doing these things. sometimes this being an introvert is really a problem for those people that cares for me, because they say i tend to forget them or they think that i dont want to speak with them as often as possible but i cannot do anything because this is me, an introvert.

Hi joshboz! I guess, I am both. Why do I say that? Well, because there are days that I am extrovert and I just love being around people and there are days that I am an introvert because I tend to hide from the rest of the world. But I am approachable and friendly most of the time especially when I am not in my blue mood. LOL! Take care and have a nice day.

Hello joshboz, I am an extrovert or social type of person in the real world. Generally I am the same type of person I am here in mylot in the way that I respond to discussions. I am very much approachable, friendly and easy to converse with in person. I do get along easily with people that I just met. I don't have a hard time having or starting a conversation with strangers. I think work and my past experiences has contribute to my personality and the way I interact with people. My work involves customer service and daily interaction with people is very common. Once I also worked for a company wherein our clients are all from foreign countries and I have to communicate with them daily through phone and personally when they visit our country.

Real world. hmmm definitely i am bit different here from the real world but that too because of the work i do. otherwise in my normal life i am an extrovert person with a laid back personality. two different combinations:) i know but i am like that. i have been trying to change it but i didnt felt comfortable. i also dont talk but that doesnt mean not at all , i do talk with my friends some times i do exchange gestures with unknown people also just a little cheer to make their day good, some times i do generate discussion and the biggest bad habit i have i have just realized while writing here is that, when i am convincing some one and he is not understanding me, this thing takes me totally outta control and i feel like hitting the other goof person:) and some times when i am participating in some discussion i dono i feel that every one should listen to me and should agree to my point of view by hook or crook:) its another bad habit and i know it comes under emotional stability and personality traits and i am trying hard to control these bad personality traits:)

okay i understand you my friend and sometimes imjust like you i have also those bad traits you say you have. i guess the best thing for all person is they should be flexible in their attitude. depending on the situation i think you need to be an introvert sometimes and sometimes an extrovert in both ways people will not dislike you at all. of course, if you deal with extrovert and you show your introvertness then for sure he will dislike you but if you show a little bit of extrovert attitude then i guess you agree with many things. thanks for responding.

Yes, I'm a loner type of a person. I can stay alone inside my room for the whole day & night without anyone to talk to. Maybe it's my nature since I don't go out that much. But I do make friends, like here at mylot, where I con communicate my ideas. thoughts and feelings.

hi friend i guess we are the same in attitude.im also an intovert but now i am starting to become an extroverrt because of the nature of my job. but originally, i am. well, i guess that attitude is your comfort level. yes, you must not be an introvert here in mylot because the more you voice out the more you earn here.thanks for responding.

Hello,joshboz. It is hard to say whether I am an introvert or an extrovert person. Nearly all my friends have said to me: when I see you the first time, you are so serious and I think you are not a friendly person. But now, it is believable that you are so lively and humorous. Yes, that is me.

hi friend. i guess your real attitude is only discovered once they hang out with you and not on the first impression. i guess what i call wit hsuch attitude is mediovert or it means in the middle between introvert and extrovert. it good that you tend to be the opposite of what people is expecting from you. not bad at all. thanks for responding.

I am the type who loves a conversation. It was only when I enjoyed my toastmasters club exposure. I don't think anymore of peoples' judgments regarding my person as long as I know I don't get to offend or act rude, I get along even with strangers. I am amiable and I love meeting new friends.

I have to be very extroverted for the jobs I've had in my life, but I get talked and peopled-out. So then I just prefer to be alone, to read, write for Helium and for Mylot. On days when I don't work, I make one or two phone calls and some days no calls. So I am very outgoing in short bursts. Then I would rather go for walks in the woods, read a book, or anything else, but people. Take care

Not much the same as what I am doing here, because I'm a silent person in the REAL world. But when I'm with my "real" friends, I am as wild as ever. I am a man of few words, for the people whom I'm not used to or don't know that much. I prefer to do more actions than talking, that for me is the most important thing.

I was never a loner and I always had the company of family members and friends. Because the family is so big, no one is allowed to be lonely, unless they wanted to be!! That is the great advantage of having people around you. Except at the time of meditation and when I am sleeping, I am always in the company of people and i love that.
