This is all some viral marketing crap for the Bond film, isn't it.

Extroverted ones talk too much to focus on making it well, maybe.

Good, then they can ask me what I want in my sandwich and air out any issue she has with cooking for me so that we can solve it. 

Introverted just make a PJ sandwich and complaint on tumblr that being "forced" to make one is tantamount to rape, all the meanwhile we are ignorant of what's going.

 

Seriously, though pathologically introverted people are incapable of being in a relationship. Communication is the cornerstone of any good relation.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Um... what do you even think introverted means?

 

A cooler name for shy people?

 

Introverted people have a problem when they are so into their own world that there isn't room for another person in their lives. I don't know what your beef with my post  is, but if is based on mistakenly believing that I generalized introverted people into a single stereotype then you clearly missed the part were I constrained it to just the "pathologically introverted".

Introverted doesn't mean shy.

 

EDIT: That probably warranted more of a response. The difference between introverts and extraverts is simply that the latter becomes more energetic by interacting with people and the former becomes tired and needs some alone time to recover afterwards or sometimes don't want to do things in group settings because they do not have the energy required to be social - i.e. staying home on friday night to watch a movie instead of going clubbing. Even "pathologically" introvert people would be perfectly capable of having relationships provided that they found one in other means than going to large social gatherings. What you're looking for is probably people with social anxiety, not introverted people. To be fair, because of the energy required social anxiety does occur in a slightly higher rate in introverted people but they are not at all the same thing, and it's definitely not the same as being "shy".

 

EDIT: This thread title threw me off, but I looked it up and it's extravert, not extrovert.

 

MOAR EDIT: Also, from Wikipedia:

 

 

 

The key feature that distinguishes extraverts and introverts was that extraverts tend to act moderately extraverted about 5-10% more often than introverts.

 

(There's not a massive difference between the two.)

I met lots of people that have given up on any form of social interaction without having any social anxiety. They are capable of interacting, though with very little success.

So what should I call someone that has given up on social interaction not out of fear but because they dislike it?

(e): ...that's probably not completely right, either, though, so make sure you figure that out before actually starting to use it. :p

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Hm, I'm not sure. I'm sure some extreme introverts might make that choice due to the energy involved, but that's disliking having to make the effort rather than actually disliking social interaction. Barti's probably got the right of it. That sounds more like some kind of social dysfunction than simple introverted nature - to make that choice, you probably have to hate people and that's not a symptom of introversion (or even being shy). I've never met anyone like that - even the most extreme introverts I know (i.e. my friend who lives with his parents, spends every free moment playing World of WarCraft and never goes anywhere) can be persuaded to come to social gatherings and events some of the time and end up having fun. There's no true dislike, it's just a big effort on his part.

 

EDIT: Of course, they may claim no fear but that may also not be true. Anxiety isn't always visible and people take lots of roads to rationalize it that aren't "I'm scared". I should know, I suffer from social anxiety and that led my teenage years to be full of black clothes, angsty music and claims about how much I hate everyone. Now I realize it's not because I hate everyone but because if I even get a phonecall my heart starts racing a little.

 

EDIT EDIT: Could be Avoidant Personality Disorder?

According to wikipedia (which is a terrible source, I know), asocial may be the better term for such behavior. Antisocial behavior (once again, according to wikipedia) apparently refers more to behavior that actively violates normal social conventions (e.g. murder, tongue.png), rather than behavior that merely ignores/does not engage with them.

I used to think I hated people. Then I found a job working CS, and found out what it *really* means to hate people.

As an introvert I can vouch for it not meaning dislikes socialising. I enjoy talking to people about things I'm passionate about or doing group activities, the introverted part is that while those activities relax an extrovert, they make an introvert need to relax afterwards. Interacting socially is stressful, and without a proper recovery period I am easier to anger and have much less patience for stupid. Unfortunately i have kids, so no time to recover and lots of stupid.
