social situations

  1. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm rather socially awkward in general and socially anxious and I feel quite stupid in social situations. I think it's because I can't express myself properly or that I seem shallow and dull to others since I don't speak up easily and have nothing much to say or add or have an opinion on the...
  2. Advice Center
    Almost as long as I can remember I've struggled with not being able to take it easy in social situations. Was it face-to-face or even just a skype conversation, with a friend or a stranger, with many people or just one-on-one. I tend to not properly think through what I'm saying and tend to...
  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Me and my ENFP friend get along really well. Our conversations tend to run deep and last for hours non-stop sometimes for days, but I've noticed… Eventually after we've talked about everything (Eveerything- science,music,books,fashion,art,murder, history,mystery, philosophy,food,caffeinated...
  4. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I can talk to people in general to get things done (i.e. hitching a ride from a bunch of people I just met, instantly creating rapport OR getting group work done) but when I go out on dates, I become really painfully awkward. Awkward like sometimes, I get really edgy when I am put in a social...
  5. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    As an INTP, I feel I'm at my absolute best when I'm cynical. I've been raised with not trusting anybody, even close friends. Hence I've never really been backstabbed or betrayed before because it's just not possible. You can never feel betrayed when you see it coming or have taken precautions to...
  6. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I just recently took the personality test with two other friends (who both turned out to be INTJs as well), and one said she expected me to be extroverted instead of introverted, and I know why. When I'm interacting with people I often act like an extrovert; I talk very enthusiastically and can...
  7. Sex and Relationships
    There's this guy that I really want to apologize and talk to in private but so many people are intefering. One day, I was going to apologize to him but some girl asked him for math help. So I just waited somewhere else. Then I found out they were talking about something else. For some reason I...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So, any fellow Introverted Thinkers find that sometimes pure, single-minded thinking gets in the way? Now, I would NEVER trade my awesome brain for anything, but sometimes I feel like I think too much. Case in point: a girl that I like (who is in a bad relationship, but sometimes it seems...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    It could just be me—hell, it could just be pathological—but there is no person, type of person, or idea of a person that could truly offend me. Poor grammar? Sure. Belly-flops in systems, inaccuracies, and inefficiency in general? Sure. But the people? No. I mean, even if someone does or...
  10. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Yesterday I went to the mall alone (it was pretty dull), but while I was giving into temptation and ordering a Mega-Choc-Shake from the Wendy's stand I watched this woman at the Pro-Active skin care stand. She had one of those shrill and comical voices like Karen from Will & Grace and it...
