Here you can talk about whether you are a very social and outgoing person or if you prefer being alone and secluded from everyone else. :)

I'd say I'm pretty social. I enjoy meeting new people and friends and learning more about others. Even though I'm still not sure what I want to be when I get older, I think something that involves meeting all sorts of people would be a very interesting career.

What about you all? Social or antisocial or maybe somewhere in between? :P

Hmmmm, well I'm very social on PC :P

I think I'm an antisocial person. I hate meeting new people where I live because people just make me sick. My people at home are way better, and they are more mature (with correspondance to age).

However, I'm very "social online". I like talking to random people, hear their views on things, and discussing our different perspective on things.

I'm very social everywhere. I'm not afraid of speaking my mind and I've always been that way.

I don't know, I'm kind of... both in a way. xD; When it comes to meeting new people, I'm very shy. It takes a while for me to warm up to anyone. I didn't start talking until 1-2 weeks into the school year. However, when I'm around someone I'm comfortable with, I really cannot stop talking. I'm not the one to be talking to a person who I don't even know. There's a fair group of people that consider me shy, because I don't really talk to them (or in front of them). However, most of my friends think I'm not shy at all.

Hard.

Pretty much this. :o
Some of my classmates who don't know me too well are constantly asking me weird questions/interviews though, as if I were some sort of alien. x: It bugs me sometimes.

I'm not very social, neither here or irl.
That doesn't mean I can't socialize with someone when deemed necessary, or that I don't have friends. What I mean is, I'm just not very good at meeting new people, but I have no problems in being sociable with my friends.

I'm social, but shy at the same time. It's a little messed up, I guess.

I like to meet new people, but I won't put myself in an uncomfortable situation purposely. In a room of strangers, I'll sit by myself until somebody introduces themselves to me. But once the ice is broken, watch out! I'm actually a very outgoing person. XD;

I've got 4 little brothers and sisters who all make me sick, that's why I can't bear being with other persons, and I'm quite nasty with them, I know it's not a good thing but stronger than I =_=

Anyway on the internet it's different, computers don't bother me and I have a few good friends too but at school I prefer being alone ;_;

I'm in between social and anti-social. I can easily make new friends. But I am a bit shy when talking to people. Especially if you have different outfit.

I'm the kind of person who sits down and wait for people to approach me. In other words, I'm not really social.

I'm quite asocial and have a narrow circle of friends.
I don't have problems meeting new people, I just don't like to make new friends as I'm content with those I already have. With said friends that I do already have however I socialise with as anyone else does.

I'm probably the (active) PC member with the "highest post count to lowest friend number" ratio.

I'm not very much of a social person. I'd rather wait for someone to approach me. But I do talk to the people who I consider my greatest friends, and that number of people is very low, around 2-3.

But I can be social at rare times. Otherwise, I'm just a quiet lonely guy...

I'll go with this.

Except I'm not particularly shy around others, I just dont talk to them much, they dont talk to me so I dont mind.

But I have a large group of friends so I dont really care.

I can be social, I'm usually the one trying to make new friends and start conversations but either other people are antisocial and won't really talk or it turns out after getting to know them a bit I don't really like them. So now I'm more antisocial and don't bother and now I'm stuck with no real friends because my former best friend has changed for the worst, it's pretty complicated and I have enough things to deal with in my life than trying to find new friends or sort out my messed up friends.

Hmm it's kind of odd, I can be very social but only to really, really close friends, my family and online. Even with my closest friends I'm not quite myself (of which I've only had about 2 really, really close friends in my life). Around most people I'm quite quiet and prefer other people talking to me rather than me starting a conversation, which can lead to being in college and not speaking to anyone throughout the whole lesson...there is only 1 or 2 times I can remember being in a completly social mood at school and I was quite loud.

But at home I'm so much the opposite that it's funny. I'm loud and joking with everyone and just say what I'm thinking. And how I act on the internet is pretty much how I act at home. I had a friend on a forum about 4 years ago and she was the same way, it was rather weird because we got on really well as well.

I'm very social on teh intrawebz and when I'm home, but in school, I'm very antisocial unless someone talks to me. I can barely ever starts conversations unless I'm out of school.

For me I'm kinda... half-and-half I guess? XD
In my circle of friends, I can be super social and talkative and such, but around others, I'm super shy. I'm shy to the point where if someone talks to me, I'll just say very little or refuse to talk altogether. But if a person goes out of their way to talk to me, or if they're nice enough, they I try to be as talkative as they are. XD
Online, though, I'm the most talkative, most annoying little brat evar. : D

Avoidant Personality Disorder.

Also you're all using "Anti-Social" incorrectly. The term you're looking for is "Unsocial".

Online I am very social but in real life I keep to myself. The only friends I really had were just from my high school poke-posse. Thats it really. I am really careful who I trust in real life because you never know who will stab you in the back so I guess in a way I kinda avoid socializing much with folks. The way I think of it is that if you think someone will stab you in the back, shoot them down before they get the chance.

For me it depends very much on my mood and the people I'm with. With my girlfriend I can either be really laid back or we can just have a lot of fun. Normally I'm sort of quiet and laid back when I'm out in public but put me with the right friends and we can get crazy.

social skills? I don't have any! yeah, I'm way too shy to speak to anyone. they have to aproach me to interact with me. but even then I'm pretty shy.

but on the internet I'm pretty social. but maybe that's just because no one from the internet could possibly know me.

November 14th, 2008, 02:39 PM
I've always been raised to be very friendly so I'll talk to anyone and carry on a conversation forever with whoever will listen.
However, just like everyone else, I have days where I just need time to myself. On those days I'm in such a sour mood I just hole up so other people don't have to deal with it. Luckily my friends understand and don't try to pry so I can get over it easily and carry on happily.

Sometimes I'm a little too friendly and come off as flirtatious (with either sex ahaha) but I can't help it, I turn everything into a joke and laugh a lot. Tis a curse XP

I didn't become social until I got work experience as a salesman this summer. The need to sell as I do my work, in order to earn money, forced an evolution/awakening upon attitude. XP

Sure, I like talking to people, and I generaly get on fine with others. That is, if the others decide they want to get on fine with me. I get given the cold shoulder a lot at school. They seem to have a lot of prejudices against me, and normaly they turn out to be incredibly petty - My hobbies such as photography and video games. Stuff that's actually pretty normal, but I get crap for, almost certainly 'cos I talk about my hobbies way too much, lol. But hey, I have my friends, and I generally get on with people my age and above. It's the younger years that are the problem 90% of the time - they're just too immature to accept that not everyone is exactly the same. Though having said that, I'm probably not the strangest guy you'll meet. It's just sillyness really.

I am somewhere in between. I won't rush into a room and scream random crap that makes no sense but I am also not afraid to speak my mind. I kind of like meeting new people but only if they have the same values as myself. I feel a bunch more comfortable talking to a Straight-A student in my class than I am talking to P-Diddy the gangster who is going to drop out of high school.

Well i dont mind meeting new people but im so shy whenever im around them i never say much becuase of my fear of saying something stupid/being judged.
Thats also why i like PC and other CPU chats becuase it is harder to be judged and most people here are nice its not like the actual world.

I'd rather be left alone, especially regarding people I don't know (or don't want to).

I've got nothing against people in general, it's just I'd rathe rhang around with one person than in a group of people.

My skills are fine though, if need be I could easily socially interact with someone.

I went to a speaking camp in Tennessee last summer. For two weeks, they taught us how to stand up in front of a large crowds, make light humor, and the way we should act to get our emotions across.

It's really helped me out alot :3

Generally I'm a shy person at first (at least in person.. online I'm pretty open), but once I consider a person a friend and I'm comfortable around them, I'm pretty outgoing.
However.. I think I've "de-evolved" as far as socialism goes..

Say.. this time last year I was close to.. probably around 10 people.
Now I'm close to... (besides family)... Zero, I think is the number? Yeah.. ZERO. X_X

Guess that's what happens when high school ends and everyone changes..

If the question is if I'm social, then yeah I pretty much am. But I don't really have time to spend with any of my friends, I'm always either studying or sleeping because I studied too much. I really can't wait until Winter Break, I'll have more time to spend online and with my friends. :)

I love meeting new people and going to new places. I'm kind of shy when around a group of guys, but once I gauge their attitudes and personalities, I usually open up really quickly or shut up. Around girls and adults, I'm usually my most comfortable. And when people find out I'm gay, it usually lifts a burden off my shoulders.

because from the activity, what people talk and how much they're talking in one topic. I really get the impression from that that they're not antisocial in any way. but it seems I'm very wrong about that.
