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?
