    My socializing at work is in short bursts. 80% of the time I'm quiet and turn away when coworkers walk toward me. I completely hate the forced socializing just because I work with them. Some of them get bothered by it, though, because I come off as arrogant or antisocial. It's just....just because we work together, and we've gotten to know each other does NOT mean I have to talk to you EVERY SINGLE TIME I see you.

    - Are you angry?
    I sometimes get asked this, and I simply answer no to my irritation, making me sound even more angry to the simpleton.
    - What's wrong?
    I could tell them how crazy I am and the rest of my life story, but I decide not to. I just say nothing.
    - Are you always this quiet?
    I don't tend to get asked this.
    - Smile! (Okay. Not a question but I'm curious as to what types keep suggesting this questionable deed!).
    As nice as it sounds, I feel like these people are asking for me to slap them. Hard. But I don't. I realize that this is a nice thing to them, and those who do that are 90% of the time EFs.

    - Are you angry?

    Not usually but I'm probably still trying to decide whether I am angry. If I am I certainly don't want to open up to them and tell them all my feelings on the matter unless it's a very close friend and they're not the one I'm angry at. I don't think I have ever opted for being angry as opposed to keeping a good friendship because I have a fear that I won't be able to deal with what comes next and I'll lose the friendship. I don't make friends very often at all but with those few close friends I do have I will do almost anything to preserve the friendship including whatever they may do to offend me; for example, one of my ISTJ friends held me down until I cried once and I am still friends with her and miss her very much.

    - What's wrong?

    In all likelihood, nothing and I'm not going to tell you unless you're a close friend.

    - Are you always this quiet?

    Short answer, yes.

    - Smile! (Okay. Not a question but I'm curious as to what types keep suggesting this questionable deed! ).

    Usually this is, to me, completely irrelevant. I don't need to smile because I'm not engaged in interaction with others. Expressions and body language are, after all, primarily for conveying unspoken information to other people. I'll be thinking and semi-zoned out.

    - You look ill/tired.

    I will probably tell them I'm fine but the real answer will either be 'no' because I'm pretty pale and people ask me because of that sometimes or 'yes' because I'm more comfortable at night (it's easier to be introverted) so I stay up late usually and as a result end up feeling pretty ill from time to time.

    With all of these I'll probably just try to make the situation go away as quickly as possible because if they're asking me any of these then it's likely that I'm being pretty introverted and them being asked is rather an invasion of my personal space. I'm fine debating and discussing with others but discussing feelings is not something I ever want to do unless it's a close friend.
    =)

    That said, I've developed a system whereby if I can't think what to say I'll use what I think of as pre-programmed interactions and I need to know the person pretty well to be myself. I wouldn't necessarily say any of the above examples but I consider them to be in this category.

    I get the bolded two sometimes... WRT the third one ("Are you always this quiet?"), I usually get it in the form of "You're so quiet!" Yeah, mind your own business. I just don't have a reason to talk to you and my time's quite precious. :steam:

    Anyhow, my usual response to the bolded two would be:

    - What's wrong?

    Nothing. (Person inevitably asks again.) I said *nothing*. Geez.

    - Are you angry?

    (Irritated/Surprised) No......?

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I'm usually engaged , despite being an I. I'm not one of those super Is who just sits back. But depending on the situation, I might be a little more reflective. When I get those questions I look at them like they have the problem.

    My Reaction: Curiosity; I can't help but think someone who continually asks if I'm angry if I'm not exhibiting any externals signs of such is generally insecure.
    My Response: "Nope." or "What reason would I have to be?"
    Quote Originally Posted by MDP2525 View Post

    My Reaction: Same as the previous.
    My Response: "Nothing."

    My Reaction: Moderately annoyed, with a hint of confusion; I begin to wonder why verbal exchanges, which in some cases can be so inane and worthless, are valued so highly that the lack of such can produce a feeling of anxiety amongst someone, as if your silence is somehow indicative of some sort of negative emotional state. Silence is vastly underrated.
    My Response: "Yeah." or "I generally reserve talking for instances in which I actually have something worth saying."

    My Reaction: An internal "Fuck You.", follow by asking myself questions internally, such as, How does a smile have any sort of value if it's completely disingenuous? Is it better for me to just display an illusionary emotional state for the comfortability of others? I smile when I feel like it, just like any other emotion. I wouldn't throw a brick out the window if I was completely calm just for the sake of doing so, so why smile if If it doesn't exactly fit my current state? I file smile under the exact same category as far as all that goes.

    My Response: "......"
