Meeting new people varies depending on the people; 6-9
With people I know, but not well; 5-8

Granted, I'm really not a 'group' person, I'm much better one on one.
But, yeah. Quiet + Shy = Awkward Disaster.
I can has self confidence sometime in the next century?

I find it easier to meet new people than to talk to casual acquaintances because I'm often at a loss for new things to discuss with an acquaintance after exhausting all the "so where do you work" meet and greet kind of topics.

Meeting new people. (complete strangers) 10+
Meeting new people. (tourists) 5 or 10, depending on the country
Meeting new people. (people in a class I'm taking, which I like) 10, but warming up very fast

With people you know but not well. (people in general) 8½-9½
With people you know but not well. (in a class I like) 3
With your group of close friends. 0
With your closest friend. 0
With family. 2


Just writing this I find I'm really unpredictable.. For people in general, non-close friends, it depends on what we're talking about or what's happening. I don't hold myself down too much when I'm happy about something :p So although I put 3, they might think I'm 9..

For some reason I'm more reserved with people I know a little bit, because they're in the "Don't get to close, or else....!"-zone.

Meeting new people (who I'll never see again) 4
Meeting new people (who I'll probably see again) 7
With people you know but not well. 6
With your group of close friends 4 (I take this as being any of my friends with the exception of the top two - I don't have enough friends to have a group!)
With you closest friend 1 (I tell her too much and she gets scared about my motivation - really should hold some back :crazy:)

I took this to mean how much detail of my thoughts/feelings regarding whatever is being discussed I let out rather than how likely I am to talk. The more familiar a person becomes the less I have to say to them, which sounds strange but that's how I work!

Meeting new people. 6-10
Varies widely because it depends on the situation. If I'm meeting people in a professional environment where it's very important to make a great first impression, then 10. If I was working on a class project with classmates I did't know, then 8 because we have some common ground in taking this class and having to do this project. If I'm meeting friends of friends for the first time, then 6 because it's more likely we'll get along. Plus I have close friends there to help break the ice.

With people you know but not well. 7
I agree with cdeuterian. It's hard when you kinda know someone so there's an expectation for conversation but you don't know them well enough to get past small talk.

With your group of close friends. 3
With you closest friend. 2
Though this kinda depends on what you mean by reserved. I'm less socially reserved (i.e., more outgoing) when with close friends, but I'm still pretty emotionally reserved - I rarely share my deep emotions with anybody.

Meeting new people: 7-9 (it depends on the vibe I get, who I'm with when I'm meeting new people, and where I am)

With people you know but not well: 5-8 (also depends on all of the above, though I'm slightly more open)

With your close group of friends: 3-4 (depends on which of my close friends are there, also I feel less comfortable in a group because all eyes are on me when I'm talking)

With your closest friend: 3 (possibly 2.5 I don't really know)

10 = very reserved, 1 = not reserved at all

Meeting new people. 10, with some exceptions
With people you know but not well. 8-10, depending on the person
With your group of close friends. 6-10, depending on the group, size of group, context, etc.
With you closest friend. 2-10, depending on my mood - averages out at 5

It seems that when I am animated, it is relative to my usual reserve, which means I FEEL more outgoing than I actually appear to others. My animated side tends to be of the intense, passionate variety more than outgoing kind. I am also pretty inconsistent, and how reserved I am can have more to do with my mood, the context, or the person's vibe than how WELL I know the person.
I am never a 1 with anyone....I always hold back something with every person.
