    Default Is it hard being an extrovert ?

    What do you think ? Here are some of the disadvantages:

    - billions of people phone you each day
    - half of them are chicks
    - you have lost so many 'Jean Provocateur' underpants on your guitar gigs to the groupies that your portemonaie is constantly empty
    - you win every debate
    - you asserted the majority of your surroundings, so you basically dont have to pay for anything but are a welcome guest anywhere
    - your huge house parties start to bore the crap out of you
    - concorde plane fuel has gotten insanely expensive
    - you always have to tell people they may adress you by your first name cause they never dare to on their own
    - your ten kids cost too much money
    - your muscle car doesnt hold two corpses at once
    - and finally: your pacheck got raised again this month because you only went by the office of your boss looking at him for half a second

    What do you suffer from ?

    ^ I don't have any of those problems. It's really frustrating sometimes to be on the ambiverted and somewhat shy side, and then be stuck in low energyness and boredom most of the time. I didn't like the idea of being an extrovert at first because I liked to think of myself as totally independent, rather than admit how sick it makes me feel to be alone sometimes and how much the simple act of talking things out helps me to understand things and feel energetic again. People are too often boring and frustrating and I still don't really like the idea of needing them for anything, or needing anything external to keep me going for that matter, but I am learning to be more comfortable with this and use it to my advantage and enjoyment. It would also be nice to not get bored with things so quickly and be able to stick with one thing at length and like it, but again I can learn to use this to my advantage. But then a lot of this is probably just "me" problems. I'm not sure, there is still a lot to figure out..

    it's a daily struggle.

    - whenever i visit anywhere on the globe i know i have someone who knows me
    - even if i didn't, i can never go anywhere without making friends
    - sometimes i get really bored and depressive when i'm in an elevator alone
    - i need a 10-car caravan to hold all my really close friends
    - my extensive family is always offering me places to stay
    - i bond easily in every social situation, even across language barriers
    - i get fidgety if i'm not the life of the party
    - i have trouble with gangs because i make (rather assertive) friends on both sides
    - i start to feel lonely when i remember there are only 6 billion people on the planet
    - sometimes it gets old, being the center of attention
    - i have to tape my mouth shut at night so i don't talk
    - i also have to duct tape myself to the bed so i don't go off on amazing impulsive adventures
    - i never get into those "gifted" programs because people already recognize all my amazing talents and i already own those programs

    lulz

    As a relative ambivert I've been able to "turn on" and "turn off" and I remember by the time I was in high school feeling sorry for people who couldn't easily make friends or speak up for themselves or what have you. On the other hand, I'm also kind of introverted in a way, so I'm not wildly wildly social ...though I did go through more of a phase like that in my teens and early twenties, where I was always hanging out and going to parties.

    But yeah I don't have a problem being by myself, I can keep myself plenty occupied, but I do get more easily distracted and probably have a harder time focusing than an introvert, and I do start to feel kind of "dead" if I can't communicate with people in some way.

    I don't have to talk all the time though. I'm not like my mom. I think my mom would DIE if she couldn't talk 10 hours per day.

    I joke, I joke, I keed, I keed. It's more like 9 1/2.

    Darn, I wish I could be more silly about this...... if I tried to make up a list of awesome stuff it would just remind me of all the awesome adventures I am missing out on and how pathetically bored I am, lol.

    I fail at both I and E, so I guess things don't matter either way anyway

    Whhhhhhhaaaaa? But an introvert is suppose to be asking this question! Not an extrovert asking himself if it is hard being himself.

    It's tough being expected to be the life of a party ALL THE TIME. If the people around you are not a receptive audience, there's no realistic way you can make them laugh.

    Extroverts' flaws are broadcasted around due to the fact that they're more visible. Introverts don't tend to show their flaws because they're so dang sneaky and keep their real behaviors to themselves.
