    ..but ones that you wish were more noticeable to people?

    For example, people very rarely understand that I have issues with social interaction. It's not that I don't like people in general, but because I'm naturally very introverted, I have to garner a lot of energy and motivation in order to get into the mood of speaking to people, and I find the act itself physically exhausting at times.

    I kind of wish that strangers or acquaintances knew this before meeting me because I hate giving off a negative impression.

    That I am fine dealing with people as in I could talk to anyone, even a stranger with ease if its in a social situation but as soon as it comes to dealing with someone official such as a doctor or even just ordering a takeaway face to face, I clam up and struggle with and it fills me with dread. If I know I have to make a phone call the next day, even if its just to make an appointment at the doctors, I dread it for hours and lose sleep over it.

    Usually people are surprised that I can be studying Chemistry and be
    -Strictly religious and have a strong faith
    -Be 22 and have centre-right political views
    -Be centre-right politically and trying out vegetarianism

    Apparently chemistry students are supposed to be atheistic and hella left wing and right wingers are not supposed to be trying out vegetarianism

    -Some people are also surprised that I like baroque music too

    Perhaps some more specific advice would be useful - it's simply not that easy. But I think that is an issue for another thread.

    I get far too close to people especially when I know that at some point in life they are going to leave me, and it's such a painful experience. I just wish that I didn't trust so often or much and that it would be easier for me to communicate with someone without worrying myself about how much I will get attached with that person and then worrying about them leaving me.

    I would never call myself an extrovert but I enjoy social engagement to an extent. But, sometimes, it really throws people when I go through periods of extreme quietness. I get them every now and then, and to me, it is very natural. But, most people, even my closest friends, think that there is something really wrong with me when I have these moments.
