Guys, I have an rather introvert character, but in other side, when I have found friend is enough closing with me, we can talk to each other elaborately although sometime I am just listening more. And because of my character here I am not too easy got acquainted with new friend. Other of thing, people who had not recognized me well, assumed that i am an arrogant person. Is there any suggestion from you how to eliminate or to minimize at least on my introvert character?

I used to be an introvert too, my pal. As you know, introverts are not easy-going person seemingly, which is so disadvantageous for us to make friends. I have lost many chance for that and I believe you must have many similar experience too. What we should do is just conquer ourselves. My solution is that encouraging mysielf to act on my own initiative, I force myself to say hello to strangers whenever there is a chance. As long as you make forward one little step, the concequent ting is not that difficult. If it doesn't work, you could choose a job which force you to contact with people everyday. I am a cop, I have to contact with all kinds of people all the time. You could be competent for this job if you were an introvert. Slowly my character changed successfully. Hope I could help you. happy my lotting.

Hi, Well garfield_zhou, thanks for your suggestion. I think i can learn and take a lesson from you. But, you know what, actually i often do saying hello just like good morning to my neighbour who i met. But still it doesn't help me enough. My spouse says that i am a protective person. Don't be such that he says. Do you think my protective behaviour makes me an introvert person?

i guess you have to mingle or socialize or even try initiating conversation to those people whom you acquainted with..and maybe later on you will be used to it and everything ..being a good listener is a good trait...
