Changes... I got a label called schizophrenia someone put up in the interior feng shui of my head, you know?

Introvert (I'd guess we have more of these than extroverts on saidit personally)

Human behaviour generally doesn't have to fit the "way"the an individual tries to glue his reality together in his core, it seems. So outgoing and talkactive people can "live" completely in their inside the same as more "silent" people can live completely on their outside (the just let more input stream into them). The "psychological" definition of extrovert / introvert doesn't "cover" or fit our individual simulations well enough, so to say, i believe.

I feel like laughing at most people who claim to be introverted to be honest, they're funny to me.

Middlevert?

"Biverted" more perhaps.

I resonate on both ends (outside and inside) of this scale. But it changes with time. So maybe i'm am pseudo-biverted.

Because i'm only middle-biverted when i resonate exactly in the middle of this scale which for itself is even hard to grasp.

More importantly, do you identify as pseudo-biverted?

On a scale measuring extroverted or introverted i surely could. But i don't need to, that's the important part. That's my liberty.

I have social anxiety but I learned to hide it and was pretty extroverted in high-school. Now I don't really like most people so I keep to myself. But I have no problem approaching people. The key is to realize that thier opinions are stupid and of no real value. No matter how perfect you are (and you don't have to think you are perfect) thier opinions won't reflect that. People make snap judgements based on the stupidest things.

Once you realize that how great you are makes no difference at all you stop feeling like you should be better. You stop wanting to be better. You realize that no matter how stupid you look it doesn't matter. Then you don't hesitate to say stupid shit just to fuck around. And that is the key to small talk.

It's not really to do with social anxiety or aptitude.

It's more about if you get more energy when you are around people people or if you find them draining.

But it depends on the people.
