    You start talking to them and they look at you like some kind of weirdo. M8 I'm just trying to make the day a bit cheerier thanks for ******** on my parade.

    Then don't talk to them?
    Stay the fun away if you don't want that to happen, simples.

    Do they wear tags now or something? I know they don't like talking to other people but some of us kind of do so unless they want to wear signs it's not so easy.

    You're mistaking the word "introvert" for "socially inept". That's not what it means.

    Uhh I can assure you that, like most people, you do not understand the definition of an introvert and to judge someone as one after one encounter is insane.

    The whole intro/extrovert thing annoys me so much, most people are just ambiverts.

    Never met an introvert who wasn't like this.

    Then you have a way of easily identifying them.

    So don't do it. Unless u like the weird looks.

    Well you're forcing it so it's your problem to this extent.

    I have a feeling you're just classing people as introverts though, and an introvert by your very definition is someone who looks at you weirdly because they don't want to talk to a stranger.

    Get used to it.

    I do ignore them once I realise because it's like talking to a wall anyway

    I'm kinda introverted but I'm pretty friendly to anyone who speaks to me. I'm just shy about initiating so I appear more aloof and unsociable than I really am.

    That's alright you probably make an effort. Some introverts though, they look like they want to murder you for saying hi.

    I consider myself an introvert. I prefer socialising with small groups. I find a lot of social interaction very tiring. I'm quite a private person. I hate things like public speaking or performing. I genuinely enjoy time by myself. That's pretty much what being an introvert is.

    What you're describing, is someone that's very shy. That's not me. Do I go all weird if people start talking to me? No. Am I a better conversationalist than a lot of loud-mouthed extroverts I know? I believe so. Do I possess a good deal of self confidence? Yes. Do I love catching attention because of the way I look? Absolutely. Do I have trouble speaking my mind or confronting people? Absolutely not.

    Being introverted is basically enjoying a quiet life, it has nothing to do with how shy or unconfident you are.
