Olarewajub: And you can't join the choir department because you hate when all eyes are on you.
I actually became the choir coordinator of my fellowship during my 2nd year in my university. I joined the choir to play keyboard initially.

SugaryBelle: whaaat! Have you seen how those girls walk? With gait and coposure,standing and smiling from 9am-12pm and walking people round to thier seats,thats worse, not this introvert abeg I can't fit,I enjoy siting in one place.I do well in the accounts department.
Oh sorry for using the word "cool". What i was trying to say is that joining the ushering department will really be of help to you when you are trying to speak/appearing publicly.

Olarewajub: Can you tell us how joining the choir helped your shyish personality?
Sure. Prior to my appointment as the choir coord, I was on the keyboard most times, so I had no problems at all. But when I assumed "duty", I sometimes had to lead "introduce" songs or worse, lead them. I most times rehearse what I would say before grabbing the mic. As time went on, I became more and more confident and I kind of grew used to the people. Being an executive introduced me to visiting people. I was the sort of hostel-school person. But I had to visit members, send text messages etc. It helped me to be able to stand in front of people without my legs shaking (or with my legs shaking a little) in my trousers.

1. Introverts are shy:
People frequently confuse introversion with being shy and even use the two words interchangeably. Shyness has more to do with anxiety and discomfort in situations involving social interaction, while introversion has to do with needing some time alone after social interactions to recharge and regain expended energy. Bill Gates is soft-spoken, bookish and introverted, but is he shy? Of course not. He wouldn’t be overly bothered by what you say to or think of him.

2. Introverts hate people:
Just because introverts need (and enjoy) time alone more than their extroverted counterparts does not mean that they hate people. On the contrary, introverts love people. They just tend to enjoy social interactions in a different way than extroverts do. Don’t be too pushy or judgmental when at a party—introverts prefer to sit calmly and watch the action from the sidelines. It’s not that they are anti-social or that they don’t want to have fun; it’s just that it’s more fun for them to enjoy the party quietly.

3. Introverts are neurotic:
Extroverts might think introverts are neurotic, but this perceptionisoften veryfar from the truth. Introverts don’t have extreme mood swings any more than extroverts do. They are not constant worriers, nor do they have a paranoid personality. Introverts can cope in any social setting just as well as extroverts can. They will only need some time alone afterwards to re-energize.

4. Introverts are mentally unstable:
Introverts are not any more prone to mental illness than other people. Needing private time to restore your energy and preferring to work on your own over working in teams does not make you mentally unstable.

5. Introverts are bad leaders:
Historically, introverts have made some of the best leaders the world has seen. Abraham Lincoln was quiet, reserved and dignified. He was revered as a man who did not ‘offend by superiority.’ Mahatma Gandhi, Queen Elizabeth II, Winston Churchill,Eleanor Roosevelt, Walt Disney, and Steve Jobs all make the long list of exceptional, introverted leaders.

6. Introverts are depressed:
This misconception likely stems from the fact that extroverts—who draw their energy from being in the company of others—feel depressed and sad when they spend long hours alone. They therefore imagine introverts feel the same way spending all that time alone quietly engrossed in their own thoughts. This might be a genuine misconception, but it is not right to put extrovert feelings on introverts. Introverts enjoy their time alone and arenotdepressed.
7. Introverts are losers:
You might not know it, but many of the world’s most successful personalities in all spheres of business and industry are actually introverts. Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Christina Aguilera, and J.K. Rowling, among many others, are introverts. These people are not losers.

8. Introverts have nothing to say:
In a highly extrovert world that just can’t stop talking, introverts simply won’t speak unless they have something worthwhile to say. That’s all it is!

9. Introverts are more intelligent
Many introverts, like Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin and Marcel Proust, are highly celebrated thinkers, but many others are not. Being introverted does not automatically make you more intelligent. It’s just that the best ideas often happen when people are in a more reflective, introverted mindset.

Introvert too. Pple tink i'm proud and a snub. I was able to overcome stage freight by joining the choir and taking songs, though not easy at first, but as time goes on, i was able to overcome. Some people are surprised when they see me on stage singing. I have no friends and its just recently i go out because i'm sometimes bored.

I'm a strange combo of funny,shy and introverted being. I hate to be noticed in a crowd and try as much as possible to avoid attention. I imagine things a lot in my head and try to figure out what to say b4 talking so as not to make a fool of myself especially while with strangers or in a crowd.I suck at online chats(since I lack what to say, I've only about 6 whatsapp contacts and usually hide offline when I log in to facebook) but do better with face to face chats since I can get inspiration from the surroundings or from the persons' behaviour.

I'm conquering it now since I've a good sense of humour and can easily make people laugh. I learn and research a lot on d net, it helps me to always have something interesting to say in my real life discussions with people.

I'm an introvert but I also like hanging out. I don't mind attending parties but I jst sit back and chill. I'm not and can never be d life of a party. I have very few friends and I find it difficult making new friends. Sometimes I find making new friends totally unnecessary.
I don't talk much, I find talking so stressful. I enjoy my 'me' time. When I'm with my wife I chatter alot but with outsiders I'm always very quiet. I will never be d first to strike up a conversation. Funny enough I didn't find it hard getting girlfriends while I ws still single. Though I'm not the meet a girl on d road and toast type but if I'm introduced to a girl I like, I always found it easy trying to chat her up and keep d friendship going. I found it easy asking them for a relationship. So my relationship life didn't suffer.
I enjoy doing 'me' things. Watching movies, playing games or reading. But when I'm invited out I don't shy away. Being an introvert is fun as it makes u a deep thinker and close friends always want ur advice. I hate noise and noisy people. My best form of hanging out is with a friend or my wife in a nice restaurant or bar with cool music and not some loud noisy joint.

Being an introvert is actually amazing as it will help you develop deep thinking abilities. Just work more on your association with others and you are good to go.

I could remember my first very interview; we were many that were invited and we sat waiting. I have never experienced an interview b4 coupled with d fact dat I m shy and inexperienced. I was jittery and was waiting to get a clue from the people that would be interviewed before me.

Hell was let loose when my name was called first...Among all the people that came there they decided to call me first. For the first time in my life I felt like denying my name. I couldn't believe the company had allied with my enemies to punish me embarassed

Goodmorning!
