Which is why I hate it when my friends invite me to parties, because it always ends up with around 40 people and I get lost in the crowd with a lot of people I don't give a **** abut and can't hang out with my friends without being really clingy.

What I prefer is just being a group of like 4-10 people I know and do something like play boardgames, Magic or having a LAN.

I'm introverted but I like hanging out with people. It just has to be specific people.

Introvert is just a term that antisocial assholes use to feel better about themselves.

Can confirm as an introvert.   
It really is awkward, when there is only one friend, and lots of people i don't know.   
I only talk to my friend, and if other people tries to talk to me, i just answer with couple of words, and that's it.   
But there is exeptions, if i find someone interesting enough, i can talk to them    
   
I also find most of the people, incredibly stupid when they talk.   
i'm not saying, i'm the smartest person, on the earth, but i don't understand why, they have to say, all that 			****		 they say.   
   
One more thing, i don't know, if anyone else, is having this problem.   
But for me, it's incredibly hard, to call or answer phone, when there is unknown person on other side.

Just the same as extroverts want alone time. Just not as much.

I have a cool story for you, bros

About 4 years ago I was diagnosed with social anxiety by a doctor
I figured that was basically it for my social life and that I'd only ever make a few friends
However, I decided to see if I could change that and, after testing half a dozen methods, I found that forcing yourself into a social situation actually works. I signed up to be a student representative on my uni course which meant I was horrible and awkward for the first few weeks but eventually, after getting a little experience, I guess I learnt how a conversation works and what's appropriate. Now I specifically go out to pubs with friends to meet new people
I don't mean to sound like a bragging douche or as if I'm saying everyone can get over it, I'm just saying that some people can push through the condition. I'd really suggest attempting it

I can talk with people, but 9 out of 10 times if it's not a friend I would just prefer being alone. It's why I don't like parties.

As an introvert, I can confirm this, but I want to be an extrovert. The only reason I'm an introvert is because people don't invite me to parties n' stuff. The first time I was invited to do something, I nearly broke my foot.

Then you're not an introvert, you're just lonely. Hang out with the popular kids.

There are those who prefer solitude but none who can withstand it.

I enjoy posts like this, but what gets annoying about them is people assuming that they are introverted in the comment section because some of the things introverts are pertains to them so they assume they are introvert. I admit I am more of an extrovert because I would rather be around people and have fun, I enjoy making people smile, but even I don't always want to be at a party especially if I don't know anyone if I have a wing man then hell I would have fun and talk to people. Everyone has a different story, a different life so why not talk to people and get to know new people.

I want to become a psychologist/sociologist because I want to know more about why the human mind acts the way it does for certain people yet for others it acts a different way. The mind is a very interesting thing to me and in all honesty it is one of the most interesting subjects to me.

pic unrelated.

I am pretty heavily introverted... I would completely agree with the post. I am awful in large groups, but I do get lonely without someone hanging out with me. I also dont do well when it is someone I dont know. My favourite group is a 1 on 1 with someone I am already very close to. It makes it hard to make friends. I feel bad because its hard to communicate and make others understand what I am trying to say, and they frequently misunderstand and get upset.....



We aren't all making assumptions, some of us are well aware of our introversion.

I have problems with talking to people because I don't like to waste anyone's time and since I don't have a lot to talk about I am afraid I might get into an awkward situation where neither of us has nothing to say.

I mean it's true and all but why do you feel the need to make these posts like introverts are some weird wild animal?

I'm an introvert and but making friends easy. I meet new people often and put on raves around my uni. Introvert =/= shy or awkward. Awkward = Awkward, shy = shy. I thoroughly enjoy being by myself.
