What kind of person are you socially?

Yakamaru

Å nei, cringe
Are you anti-social and/or introverted? Extroverted and/or social? A bit of a mix?
Do you gain energy by interacting with people like a solar panel does during midday? Do people drain energy from you like a black hole drains a nearby sun?
How do you look upon interacting with people in general? Do you like to interact? Do you not like to interact?
How do you interact face to face compared to over the internet? Is it different? The same? Is it easier? Harder?

Feel free to describe a little on how you as a person look upon being social. Can make it short, or you can go indepth. It's 100% up to you, and how much you want to divulge on your social/asocial sides.

Me? socially awkward :p
But iam also a very extroverted fella, I do not have any problems confronting people and leading a conversation. On the interwebs even less so.
The thing is, if you ever stood face to face with me, you know that iam kind of a weirdo so my list of friends is relatively small. But I can safely say
that the few friends that I have are pretty decent. Iam also accustomed with metal heads and the like who are usually open minded light hearted people \m/
That being said I need my time alone in order to function properly , meaning that I suck at relationships xD

I'm very introverted and reclusive, but people seem to like me and my friends are always dragging me out.

i don't know what kind of person i am... i guess a confident introvert? idk i get energy from being around people and i'm social i'm one of those people who makes friends anywhere but my friends list is small its only about 50 people on FB and 15 on Steam i only friend people i personally know


story time (which i know by now a lot of you love)

so we were at a pub this was when i was 19 and just out of diapers and we (me and my friends) had discovered the magic of pubs

so almost everyone in the pub was a friend or someone i went to school with cause it was still the brief time between finishing school and everyone going off to adult and i was at this table with 5 of my best mates and they keep ogling this really cute bar girl who later we found out was 18

so i can't stand that shit i can't stand the whole "oh she's hot you talk to her no you talk to her i'm too shy" so i got up walked over her and said this


"hey, so you see those guys over there? they've been talking about you all night but none of them have the courage to talk to you"

"oh..." *kinda rolling her eyes*

"so i'll make you a deal ive told them that i'll come over flirt a little and get your number so giggle so it looks like we're flirting"

*she fake giggles* "so what's the deal?"

*i hand her a piece of paper* "you write any number on this paper doesn't even have to be yours and i get free drinks for the night and you get left alone cause almost everyone in this pub knows each other except for crocodile Dundee in the corner there wearing the akubra"

she laughs and says "free drinks? well it sounds like you're getting a better deal out of this than i am"

"weeeellll you have been working all week my guess is you don't want a bunch of horny teen drunks hitting on you"

she laughs again and says "ok ok sounds like a good deal"

so she writes the number down and i go back they get shitty at me for "dogging the boys" and the night goes on later on the night ends after the pub closes and we're all drunk as hell and try to call cabs but they refuse to pick us up so i just pass out on the nature strip

in the morning i'm woken to "hey" it was the bar girl i go red faced and say something like "oh sorry do you need me gone to open up" and she says

"nah i saw you sleeping... over there... when i left i thought if you were still here when i went on my morning walk that you would.. you know... like coffee or something... help with the hang over"

we dated for 1.5-2 years i think? any way i don't know if that's extroverted introverted or what
i find talking talking on the net harder because emotions and moods aren't easily translatable in typing but i'm more or less the same person

Out going and easy to get along but I feel drained every time I interact,unless with someone I know and trust...
Definitely fit the island profile,much rather be in my own company vs others.
Meet me in person and you'd never be able to see my inner introvert.

You don't actually believe in that shit do you? It's scientifically flawed.
I'm not particularly big on believing in anything beyond its potential for utility. Unless you can point me towards a more scientifically accurate method of evaluating an individual's psychosocial profile however, it's the best that I can make do with for a concise answer to the OP.

If you want further details, you have but to ask.

Fair enough. Might want to watch Adam Ruins Everything: Dating for a more indepth answer.

TV Shows are nice and all for informative entertainment, but I do prefer reading the source material.

Truth be told, it's not surprising to me, especially if astrology is anything to go by. Whether or not acceptance of the result is born out of confirmation bias however is rather irrelevant, especially when individuals are susceptible to altering their behaviour to emulate that of their own expectations as closely as possible, and even more so when they have a means to crystallize it.

In defense of the series, Adam does cite his sources and the professionals he talks to regarding his topics. The biggest issue with that methodology of personality testing is that it doesn't quite stack up to todays standards of testing. It's outdated, doesn't take controlled testing into account, how personality changes over time and a few other things. It's worth the watch if you get the time.

Are you anti-social and/or introverted? Extroverted and/or social? A bit of a mix?
I'm definitely an introvert. I don't really have a problem interacting with people but I will pretty much never be the one to start the interaction. I keep to myself and just wait for others to pull (drag) me into social situation.

Do you gain energy by interacting with people like a solar panel does during midday? Do people drain energy from you like a black hole drains a nearby sun?
People tend to drain energy from me unless I'm with someone I trust. And I don't trust a whole lot of people.

How do you look upon interacting with people in general? Do you like to interact? Do you not like to interact?

I like interacting up to a point. I hate being in situations where others expect me to "take charge" and keep things going. I guess I'd describe it as I like being invited to the party but I don't want to throw the party.

How do you interact face to face compared to over the internet? Is it different? The same? Is it easier? Harder?
It's probably mostly the same for me. I'm really not going to go starting interactions unless I have a reason to (which is rare). However I have no problem responding and joining in if something interest me or if someone wants my two cents I'll give it.

the boys materialize at Greenzones house all 8 of them... with all the beer in the world but soon 8 became something like 16

long story short very pissed off greenzone yelling for people to go to sleep at 2:30 in the morning while they're watching CGI futa porn with this blaring
on Greenzones big ass TV spilt beer everywhere people going wild spew all over the bathroom....

i got like an hours sleep and by god you bet your ass i made sure c***s went to work the next day AND i had to go do a 2 hour gym session later on

Interesting answers.

Personally I'm a bit of a mixed bag.

I'm an introvert: I like thinking, pondering, doing research, watching videos on everything from nature to physics to political issues. I like being on my own with my own shit. I generally avoid people. A headset with music on my ears is a good and easy way to avoid unnecessary contact.
I'm sometimes an extrovert: Around people I like, I will simply be myself. Finding topics to talk about is not hard, as we already know each other.

First, on my anti-social side:
I hate people in general. Being around people drain my energy, especially new people I've not met before. I don't know exactly how to explain it. After a while I just gotta GTFO there. If I can, I will avoid people. A bit of social anxiety, Asperger's and a general strong dislike for people combined with working at a support department in an electronics store is never a fun combination. But, to combat my social anxiety, there are no better ways IMO to fight it than to jump straight into it and fight it directly. I have no intention of cowering in the corner, going "I don't like/want this, and thus I will avoid it".

Second, on my social side:
I take time to warm up to people, sometimes it takes a lot of time. Once I've warmed up, I can easily talk about the most random shit for hours on end. There are few people I like and even fewer people I really like.

I always give people the benefit of the doubt. The doubt to prove if they are worth my time or not. It's usually easy to see from a short conversation. So far, this "sense" is often spot on.

Welp, you saw that Debbie Downer SNL skit about Disneyland? That's pretty much me, only without everybody cracking up at the end.

It depends I guess. I'm extremely shy most of the time, but I adapt fairly easily. There are some people who I have no issues talking to them, while for others I can barely speak. On the upside, I can usually control my feelings and force myself to stop procrastinating about uncomfortable social situations.

Extroverted, and sociable, empathetic, though also prone to reading various 'serious' dark literature (Thomas Mann, Kafka, Anne Sexton &c) and prone to moody, intellectual brooding.

But all in all a friendly sort, who likes to help folks, and has perhaps had a little too much fun in life, at points, concerts, crazy late night parties, going out and being wild. But on the other hand, there's the part that writes poetry, and is very reserved, though all in all, I like to reach out and communicate, and make emotional connections with people.
