    Default I find myself disatisfied.

    *** dissatisfied.

    I look around. No one.

    In the middle of nowhere, granted, yet for sure people can be here. They consciously choose not to be.

    I go to the city. Hardly anyone. People not interacting with others. Everyone living their own lives. The streams of human interaction are no longer physical, but technological.

    I'm on my phone. I could text many people. I could call them. I could log onto facebook and see what is going on with them. They are available to me...but they aren't. They are just people I know technologically.

    And in the immediate, I know no one. How can I? There is no one to know!

    Ironically, with this problem I go to yet another group of technological strangers.

    Wait, I see someone. A male. Walking briskly by. Plugged in, listening to his music. Ironic.

    It's all really dissatisfying.

    Interrupt people force them to interact with you and make them smile then ask for contact info. You can make friends really quick if you have to. However realty good close friendships can be a bit more elusive because they require connecting on a deeper level. If you never give people a chance to get to know you from the start then your chances are severely diminished.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Yeah, society messes with your head that way... My favorite was a situation at a train station... There were five people texting on their phones at the exact same time.... But these really troubled looking people (just their image anyway) came up and helped me find out where I was going and then started talking to me and I just found it so refreshing for some reason.... Just the combination of caring from strangers and the fact that they were looking up and around at other people and noticed that I was lost.. Kind of a weird thing to be refreshed about but I think it's been going on a while and we just don't realize it sometimes.

    Move to West Virginia.

    Or just approach a coffee shop in California with a stray kitten.

    It may be the area where you live.

    Yeah, beauty of type c is many different perspectives.

    I was trying to look for something I saw on facebook (ironically) that said "why worry about the zombie apocalypse when you already are a zombie?" (showed a bunch of people walking down the street looking down at cellphones)

    This is true. I know this old ESTP guy who is like 80 who will have a conversation with ANYBODY.

    A lot of times it has to do with your own personality type, but it also can be about where you are. I don't think I'd fare very well in a city like New York, for example.
