“…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”
XKCD is always relevant. Always.
I'm an ambivert, so i didn't know whether i should vote yes or no.
I'm better off with my friends though, so i voted no.
Introverts just overal 'prefer' to be alone than to be with (a lot) of people. They prefer one-on-one discussions rather than group discussions. They normally dont feel 'at home' in large groups and this just costs mental energy. Just like certain situations like perhaps giving a presentation and being stressed about it can cost energy.

But no, it is not weird. Even though I can understand that it SOUNDS weird to you.
And yes, interacting are normal. Also, some introverts might last longer or don't get tired as fast as other introverts do, some might not even get tired, instead, they might get bored, but that doesn't change the fact that they are still introvert and need to get away to think clearly or be unbored.
Ehhhhhhhh, I have no friends because I'm chronicly unemployed and moved after getting out of high school
I had briefly made "friends" in my new area but they were all druggies, liars, and users......... so I disowned them and am back to 0 friends.
Better to have no friends than friends who will use you,lie to you, and/or make you end up in jail with them.......... right?
There's really nothing else I can say at the moment. Both me and FrozenFlame already explained all we could, atleast I think I have.
If you really want to know everything, I don't know, talk to a person that has experience and is an expert in this matter?
I like my alone time but I also like the time spent with my friends.
Hard to choose, really. I'd say more of a loner as I do spend more time alone than with other people :P
yea I am a loner. i was social at childhood but it droped much after awhile. i dont like going to on party and i prefer being alone with a computer/ other entertainment then social things. however i do tend to go out if there are intresting films showing with friends or laser tag. but I am still at my 20s so well see how it goes.
"I am Introvert between"
Yup, loner. i like to go to the cinema with my brother and his friends and go out with him when i'm older but i'm socially awkward to everyone except my family and i can't make conversations or talk with strangers, i usually answer things but that's it.
There's nothing i can do, it sucks.
*sigh* Another I don't know..
I can't stand being alone, I get depressed after a 4-5 hours but at the same time, I don't like to "hang out" with people that much either. I just need to be in public but be left with my own thoughts most of the time but I enjoy talking with people I feel comfortable with as well. The only thing I hate is being in a situation where I feel like I have to give a good impression. I absolutely hate interacting with attractive guys or being in a formal situation where I cant get away with stupid comments or slouching.
I would have to say I am, I really don't like to socialize with people unless I have to. Anyways, it doesn't bother me in the least, I don't seem to get along with most people I meet(most likely my fault XD). I like my little group of friends I have and couldn't careless to expand it.
