But as for soc, I'm slightly different now, but especially when younger I really didn't care what other people thought about me, I didn't care how they judged me, I didn't need them. I would get along fine either independently or with the support of those I trusted. I don't play politics, don't care much about power and am very allergic to a herd mentality.
But with sx, it's like, something I need to live and breathe. If I had no deep connections with at least one other person it would be like death. I would have to live at least for some cause to throw myself into if there weren't other people.
