    Londoners talk to me on the tube, offer to show me directions, I've found them really nice personally.
    Probably the elderly... I've only ever been ignored like I don't even exist - sometimes I worry someone might actually sit on me on the bus lol but tbh I prefer that to the dirty looks/ "what"s you get from school kids

    :lol: Well, as I said in other post, being shy may automatically make you introverted by nature, but the opposite is not true - you can be introverted (i.e. prefer to live a quiet life) without being shy.

    Nah loads, I probably look lost, I sort of assume they're getting ready to mug me and leave my body in one of the bathrooms.

    That's alright you probably make an effort. Some introverts though, they look like they want to murder you for saying hi.
    At least know what you mean by introvert when you use the term... very few people are solely introverted btw.
    Maybe these people look at you like that for other reasons, e.g. they don't like you, you're disturbing them in the middle of something, etc. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Because we challenge society's idea of what is normal and people like the OP can't have that happening.

    Saying yes would mean hating 90% of TSR

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

    But can you be an extrovert whilst being shy?

    Nah, definitely not. Just like I said, if you're shy then you're going to be introverted by nature. However, you can definitely be introverted and not be shy. Hence "shy" and "introverted" aren't really interchangeable terms, for that reason.

    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.

    I'd rather be me, an introvert, than try and pretend I'm an over-confident character that just makes me mentally exhausted to keep up with. I feel like extroverts give a little bit of themselves to other people...sometimes it's nice to keep yourself to yourself.

    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.
    Yes, although introverts and shyness do tend to go hand in hand often.
