I was wondering wether you guys think these characteristics are those of an introvert or someone who is shy, or both?

It takes me about a year to fit in to a new school, (in one school most of my friends didn't remember me being there the previous year because I tend to hang back and just observe). But after the year I will be on good terms with everyone and have a close group of really good friends.

I'm not very good at clubs, I don't get how random strangers can just hook up without even really talking first, it seems weird to me and although I'll partake it doesn't feel right.

I need time alone doing an activity where I can just focus and forget about everything (usually exercise based, running, boxing etc.)

I care probably too much about what people think of me and am very self-concious.

When I'm in a group that's too large I tend too withdraw completely and I find it uncomfortable.

I hate small-talk, for me it feels fake.

I don't really get society and trends and how groups function in the bigger picture. I want to escape from it all and just wander the world without responsibilities.

Yeah so it would be great to get your opinions, thanks.
Well, introverts are drained by the presence of other people.
Shy people have problems asserting themselves into the environment. If severely shy, a person can become other peoples' red carpet due to their problems asserting themselves.

You sound like you are both an introvert and shy.
