    The PerC community and all of its glory!

    Though I don't know many people on this site, I seem to enjoy its existence :). It helps me understand people to a more full extent.
    Still, in saying this, I would love to make some more friends, being anyone I can connect to and who I can have a decent conversation with. It's just... I'm scared about adding someone as a friend (bravely added two today because I thought they were pretty amazingly friendly :D) because they might think, 'who is this girl and why one earth is she adding me?! I don't even know her...'.
    Paranoid, maybe. But that's just how I think.


    Is it just me, or do others feel like this?

    this is pretty much why I never bothered with facebook. I would be obsessing way too much about stuff like that.
    Also, I think it gives of a general aura of forced/competative extrovertedness.
    This however makes me somewhat of an oddity. Which ultimately isn't something that I mind, but it just gets tiring having to answer the same questions over and over again.
    To steer back on topic: I think this is something that applies to introverts in general and INFPs specifically. We're not really comfortable taking initiatives or putting ourselves out-there in general.

    Who is this girl and why on earth is she starting a thread?

    Haha no I'm kidding. That's why I haven't added any friends either, or started any threads.

    Mmmmhmm of all the internet forums I've ever been on this is my favourite and so I use it all of the time. Nice PerC is nice

    As for Facebook, I'm pathetically addicted... I feel kinda excited inside when someone puts up new pictures...

    I think you may be projecting your fear of rejection / reaching out onto other people. You don't know that they'll act that way, but you think they will. I project my fears onto other people a LOT. I definitely am scared about reaching out and making friends. And this fear also leads me to the thought, "What if they think I'm weird?"

    Ironically, BECAUSE I feel this way and because it paralyzes me, I get really happy when OTHER people add me as a friend :). So, if you think about it, if other people feel this way too, they may really appreciate the effort!

    Also, I have a little voice in my head that talks this way to me all the time - "they're gonna think you're weird," "they're gonna be annoyed at you for asking," "they won't like me," etc. - but I've learned to act quickly before this voice gets to me. Otherwise, I feel paralyzed by my own fears and I never get what I want.

    So, I guess I've learned to be a bit impulsive :).

    I agree its hard to actually add someone as a friend on here, my only friend on here is one of my friends in real life who I got to join her, he's not as into the MBTI as I am though, so he doesn't post as much... Someone add me as a friend! (This is as close to an emotional outcry for friends as I'm going to get...) Also this place kicks the hell out of facebook, I don't care what people are doing with there free time, or with your social lives, I get it you have friends stop rubbing it in my face! :P

    When I joined PerC, I had 0 friends. Now I have 50+ friends, that's about 48 more than I have in real life hahaha. Initially, I was hesitant to add people and have other people add me, but as time passed and I interacted with more people in this subforum, I realized there are some awesomely insightful people here. I lurked for about a month because I didn't think it was worth my time to post on an internet forum. Eventually I felt comfortable enough to start posting, and the rest is history. Don't worry, just be yourself and post away!

    ^^ well everyone should know then that most ppl will gladly accept a friend request. Since most ppl are thinking the same <.< this thread is proof enough. I personally while I am afraid to add friends would love to get invites from new ppl and maybe chat about a few things.

    PS: Atm reading this fascinating book about the MBTI, you can download it for free in PDF version off the net, found it on megaupload.

    I still worry about it ... I don't like adding people here (but then the internet tends to exacerbates some of my paranoia etc). I worry that they secretly don't like me or what have you. I added someone - the awesome Bluntress (I didn't have him on my list for some reason D: ) - a few days ago but otherwise it's been months. So ... if I don't add you, it's because I'm somewhat scared to add.

    -- to the OP: people will be glad that you added them, don't worry about it :)
