I'm just seeing this thread...
So let me share my personal experience, I hate gatherings like malls,parties, cinemas etc. I also don't like pictures unless I feel like, apart from work I prefer staying indoor playing games and watching movies.
But I do relate with people especially ladies, does anyone know how to overcome this personal hatred for gatherings.

Monkeys start jumping from tree to tree by trying. I will say you build your courage, try to engage people both friends and strangers in conversation. Even though if the conversation isn't going well, keep trying. Mix and meet new people and be free with them.

I hope this help, even though I'm not the right person to give this advice. I am experiencing some of these problems- it's just that I am tongue- tied only when meeting someone for the first time. But with FRIENDS, I am a talkative.

Olarewajub:
Introvert comes from Latin intro- , "inward," and vertere , "turning." It describes a person who tends to turn inward mentally. Introverts sometimes avoid large groups of people, feeling more energized by time alone.
Introversion is at its root a type of temperament. It is not the same as shyness or having a withdrawn personality, and it is not pathological. It is also not something you can change. But you can learn to work with it, not against it.


Introvert Facts

• 75 percent of the world is extroverted.

• Being introverted affects all areas of your life.

• Nothing is wrong with you.

• Introverts feel drained and overstimulated.

• Being introverted is something to be celebrated.


Common Introversion Traits

Introversion is marked by a number of sub-traits:



1. Very self-aware

2. Thoughtful

3. Enjoys understanding details

4. Interested in self-knowledge and self-understanding

5. Tends to keep emotions private

6. Quiet and reserved in large groups or around unfamiliar people

7. More sociable and gregarious around people they know well

8. Learns well through observation.

Welcome to Nairaland Introverts Lounge

I'm here for this.. My mum is so tired of my introverted nature but I really can't help it.. Most people think I've got so much pride but that isn't it really.. I just love to lay back most times and observe things, could be sometimes withdrawn too

You are making me feel like a doctor that diagnosis drug for an ailment he himself suffers from. lol

Well, you need to be aware you have at least one advantage as an introvert; your quietness and reservation attracts you to a lot of people and it makes them want to know or talk to you. What I think repels them is you; how you respond to their invitation, your reactions and perhaps the fact that you get tired of being with people very easily. So, there is no need to be judgemental of yourself, no need for you to be too observant about how apt or appropriate your response is. Most times, before the person comes to you or pick a discussion with you (I know introverts like ME will not initiate discussion even when there is a need to) he/or she might have noticed some qualities in you. Introverts are always considered intelligent. Besides, the person you are talking to are human, they too have their frailties. Be hundred person sure your interlocutor (male or female) is not judging you. He/she is simply being human (social animal) trying to talk, relate and make friend. So free yourself and always be yourself. The fact that one idiots considers you dumb, slow or unintelligent (has a negative feelings about you) doesn't mean you are what he thinks or feels neither does it mean every one else will feel same. No matter how you try (even if you try to impress people) you can't be liked by everybody. So what's the need to be too consciouss of how you talk or relate with people. Be yourself and let whoever finds it hard to like you for who you are and proud to be walk away.

Like I said before, monkeys learn to jump from tree to tree by trying, try to be chatty. it MAy help. Some of my old classmates who I recently saw after few years of departure just told me the ME they used to know was too reticent and related only with his books and phone but the one they are seeing now seems to be freer. I can't even say when I started talking that much but I can vividly remember when I decided to stop being too rigid.

You may also try and engage in some duties like teaching. it helps build your confidence and liking for lenghty but reasonable talks.

Am not sure am an introvert...maybe am just lazy... I hate going to meetings, parties, church. Except night clubs. Where I can b observing in one corner.

Infact I never leave my house,even on sundays my landlady is like "are u okay"?

Unfortunately or fortunately, electricity is very stable and my work is mainly online except once in a while I get to visit the construction site... Other times, am on Nairaland, yahoo, listverse, bored panda e.t.c.

How will I get a gf bayiii.. I just tire.

Am partly an introvert and a Nerd.
I hate stuffs that dont let me crack my Brains but i enjoy my Privacy so much.
Ladies aint my problem tho although i can relate fine with a Lady if need be provided i know her before hand.
But spinning a random hot chic is a Herculean task i just dont like to undertake.
I just prefer mentally smart chics to Physical hot ones, the nerdy chics are usually beautiful tho.
But i do care a lot.
Wikihow taught me to have Confidence and Self-esteem so i dont have stage fright.
Am quite an extrovert on Social media but the reverse in real life.
Cherish online activities to offline and love computers.
Got tons of Lady admirers but i dont seem to Sync well with People am not into. And yeah! they are way older than me as am in my early teens <17.5 years>.
I have a good sense of humour tho i dont talk much.
So when i do, people always listen and agree to virtually anything i say even though it might be flawed.
My First Gf was a Hp Compaq with 1gb Ram.
I broke up with her last year because she wasnt as hot as i expected.
Most Ladies call me a snub but am not.
Maybe because i gave out all my Fvcks way back in 2018, so i got none left to give.
The closest i have got in a Relationship was with this hot chic that almost punctured my introvertic Bubbles. Too loud mouthed and materialistic i must say.
And i detest Drama queens and Cry-Babies.
Later found out she was my Course Rep's Gf so called it quits with her.
Just keep 3 trusty friends i can count on.
I live a world of virtual reality most times in my mind and dedicate more time to drawing, writing algorithms or just coding.
I can stay indoors for a decade if i have stable electricity, 1terabyte Sub and my trusty Gf < lappy>.
Tech interests me much and am visually impaired to an extent so i wear specially made lens.
It has formed a part of my dress style tho.
Am a hustler too or should i say, an Online hustler.
.
My Dad was the cause of my Introvertism so Crazily strict, and made us stay indoors for so long that staying indoors is my acquired hobby.
Also hate Parties or Social events unless am moderating it.
.
Its cool seeing other introverts here too, i guess social media is the Introvert's Mouth piece.

I've got trust issues. I hardly let people into my personal space. Right here in Uni, some see me as their friend but to me, they are more like acquaintances.
