I've always felt this underlying tension between wanting to socialise, be the "centre" of attention, being "popular" yet i never try to act on it and prefer my own "quiet" way of living. Ever since discovering MBTI, i guess i kind of understand why this happens to me now.
It's almost as if i want attention but do not feel its appropriate to do things to get attention. This has really got into my head now because sometimes i really do feel disappointed about myself or unhappy about my social life yet i can never seem to express such emotions or even act on it.
It just seems that i'm always on a different wavelength with peers and even friends, i often find myself "isolated" even though i do get the opportunities to do fun things with them. Sometimes i feel like they don't even know i'm there! The only place i really feel at "home" is at home where i get time to myself, although it is then that i get the urges to want to be with friends...
Any help from fellow members?
