I've been thinking recently that I might be slightly extraverted rather than introverted, because I do enjoy meeting new people and learning about them. But just now someone called me from my school's alumni fund and we embarked on a fake, Valley-girl accented phone convo that made me want to get off as quickly as possible and run far, far away.
Learning real things about people and seeing them be their genuine selves is great, but I don't think I enjoy superficial interactions where both parties are wearing a mask of sorts. Of course people generally have their guard up around new people and acquaintances, but that's a bit different.
Can anyone relate? Who enjoys these interactions? I'm kind of curious to learn how I can start having fun with them, because they're basically par for the course in southern California.
