    Mostly this.

    But sometimes this.

    Also, if a social gathering is loud and it's hard to be heard, I will keep quiet more because trying to project my voice for everything I want to say so people can hear me is very draining. I end up getting a lot of "What was that?" and so I have to repeat myself.

    It is difficult enough to get a word in edgewise with one person talking to me. This difficulty doubles with two people, but is still possible -- and then keeps going up exponentially until I am left with no time to talk and nothing to say because the conversation is going too fast for me to find my words.

    I think this means I am autistic or something.

    I usually don't engage in conversation because I don't have much to say. Sometimes I don't talk because I get easily annoyed with others around me. It doesn't take much to get me angry at someone because of their personality. I'm assuming that part is just me, though.

    This is pretty much exactly my answer. People talk way too fast, and I can't find my words. It is very much exponential.

    ...But then a lot of the time I don't really care because they are talking about silly superficial stuff and I'm only standing by them as decoration as I zone out because I'm too tired to do something of interest to me

    I know a couple of INFP's who seem to have no difficulty in groups. Even people they've never met, they seem to quite quickly find their feet and warm up, and they're very good at finding just the right words to say at the right moment. They definitely are both introverts though. One of them, you can tell she's nervous really obviously, but it's quite charming really

    I really, really dislike interrupting people.
    However, people in groups always do that, and I'm always left waiting for a pause.

    It doesn't matter if they're people I know or not.
    Group interaction is like a black hole, with everyone just throwing words into the center. :[
    Everyone's just looking for a chance to interrupt someone, and there's no real connection between the members. It's boring. Conversations cant develop that way... does anyone else notice how more people = shallower conversations? Even if everyone in the group is really interesting on their own!

    People often think I don't like to speak in groups. That's not really the case, especially if I know others in the group well. I DO prefer to speak second, after others have started their arguments, because this gives me time to formulate a response.. if it looks like I'm having problems talking, it's usually because more extraverted people have moved on to a different topic, so at that point, I just sort of wait until I have something to add to the conversation. I don't like inserting myself unless I have something meaningful to say (or unless the conversation is just mindless banter )

    I usually don't care about the conversation at hand.

    I've gotten more comfortable and better at speaking in groups, but lately I've noticed something... I have the tendency to repeat myself several times. I'll say something, realize it probably didn't make sense, and then I'll try to rephrase it. Sometimes I'll end up repeating/refining an idea 3 or 4 times. I have to just LET IT GO. hahaha

    I don't like drawing attention to me in big groups. I hate it when they're all looking at me. But in fact - in small group of people - I can be the most assertive and enthusiastic person in the group sometimes.

    I just hate the attention.
