I dont see how being on the internet is being an introvert. Most people on the internet speak to hundreds of others every day, thats what the internet is FOR.

I don't think so. Speaking from experience, I'm a much better listener.

When I need to talk about me then I do it in public (blog) in a longwinded post. I don't do it one to one so someone can give me their full attention. I just need to get stuff out sometimes then I go back to trying to listen to others. If someone wants to know about me then I generally shut them down, but if they want me to know about them, then I'm happy, content even to listen.

I'm extroverted. I sometimes get shy around girls, but only if I like them and that is quite rare really. Being extroverted can be a bad thing, I often say things that people find horribly offensive because I'm trying to get a chuckle from them.

I'm not sure quite to label myself... honestly it depends on my mood... I have plenty of IRL friends, I talk to lots of people on the internet as well... hell, I'm posting here... yet i'm not entirely sure...

Probably because you don't know enough people well enough.

I'm extremely introverted, but I have far more friends in real life than I do online, and I only spend so much time on the computer because It's oh so fun.

For an extreme introvert, I don't seem to have much difficulty making friends and having relationships with other people. I just happen to be a very private person who strongly enjoys his solitude.

Probably not all of us, but I'm an introvert myself. I prefer my close friends irl and online although I do enjoy the homosex that goes down on ng chat (you know who you are).

We're good listeners because we have little to say because we have no lives. I was always called a loner in school but its not like many people ever actually came up and tried to be friends with me. I never told them to get away from me like an insane person.

Wow, ego much?

That's not being egotistical. That's just stating a fact. Maybe he has threads that go on for five or six pages, and can therefore be deemed 'successful'.

Usually when an introverted person does talk it's after having done lots of reflecting, lots of reading, writing, etc etc, and because of that they talk up a storm.

Extroverted people are the opposite, they flock together in groups, and are bored when alone. Introverted people can be equally charismatic and engaging, just not with a group of people.

Wanted to say something along the lines of this as well. An introverted person is not someone who just sits around on the internet all day and avoiding social contact all day, that's being an anti-social person and it's not healthy.

You know your introverted if you rather think introspectively rather than going to someone else with your problem. Or if you have the need to recharge with alone time after doing some socializing.

I'm an introvert. That doesn't mean i don't like to socialize however, or that i'm bad at it.
It's just that being social takes energy (and a lot of it in some situations) whereas it seems as if extroverted people gain energy from it.
I like going to parties, but sometimes i prefer to stay home too.

Oh, and i also like to say how it's annoying that most extroverts can not understand that being social drains my energy levels. If i want to leave after a couple of hours socializing, it's not because i don't like the people anymore or i'm having a bad time, i just feel tired and need to be alone to regain energy. How is that difficult to understand?
