    Are you an extrovert/confident/comfortable/socially successful person or an introvert/shy/uncomfortable/socially anxious person IRL?

    Can you talk to girls easily? How are you at public speaking?

    I'm very interested in these subjects, especially I'd like to read it from internet marketers.

    I can talk my way into any vagina. That should tell you something about me.

    But I am an extrovert in IRL, never had a problem with socializing with people I've just met and don't have a problem with speaking to girls or in public. You asked a serious question, or so I think, so I didn't want to leave you hanging there mate.

    People who use "introvert" and "shy" interchangeably usually just have social anxiety - the actual meaning of an introvert is that you don't mind socializing, but you need time to "recharge" by yourself after being in groups for too long. Nothing to do with being shy, although you might prefer to chill by yourself more than extroverts.

    People who call themselves extroverts to excuse their obnoxiousness are just annoying - an extrovert means that you get energy off of being in groups, the opposite of an introvert. Being an extrovert doesn't mean that you feel the need to start screaming at the top of your lungs after two shots.

    In general, most people are a little bit of both, but I think I lean more towards the introvert side. Wouldn't be surprised if the majority of IMers do, because, in general, IM isn't a very social activity...

    I am an introvert. Introverts actually don't have socialisation issues (in fact, nearly all of them can socialise just fine), they just prefer to be alone. In my case, I have great difficulty socialising with people, but I am not afraid of doing it. Since being anxious is being worried about uncertainty in situations, I also do not get anxious knowing I have to go out and interact with people because all of the conversations are the same. For example:

    • When a 3-12 year old speaks to me: Do you Minecraft? Do you play Call of Duty? I play Call of Duty! Call of Duty is fun! Pow pow pow! Headshot, quickscope, nazi zombies"!
    • When a 13-17 year old speaks to me: What's wrong with you? Why don't you smile? Why are you always wearing sunglasses? Are you, like, high or something? You need to smile more".
    • When an 18-26 year old speaks with me: "Brah, college is so hard, brah, but I love those hoes, brah. You smoke, brah? Why don't you smoke, brah? Weed is from the Earth, brah. Why don't you talk much, brah? Why don't you make eye contact, brah? Oh, now you're speaking brah, but why do you talk like that, brah"?
    • When a 27-50 year old speaks to me: "Why aren't you in college? Don't you know that in this economy, you need a solid college education? You need to spend an exorbitant amount of cash for something you could learn about on the Internet. You need a degree! You need to become a doctor! Majors, degrees, college experience, professors, fellatio"!
    • When a 51+ year old speaks with me: "Wow, how did you make money online! That's very impressive, young man! You know, I have a grandson/granddaughter that started their own business. It's good to see the youth these days being creative and smart about their decisions"!

    I can talk to women, but my monotonous voice friend-zones them (because they think I'm not interested, which most of the time I am not). Since high school, the only woman I was able to attract (other than women who were too young or to old) was a 21 year old blonde single mother, but I never accepted the date.

    How did you develop this skill? You can give suggestions to introverts.

    From my own outlook on myself I feel like I am pretty outgoing. I am not scared to strike up conversation with people. I enjoy meeting new people in real life and these qualities really make jobs like being a doctor appeal to me.

    Go the the mall start talking to the people at the stores, they are paid to talk to you and make sales. Even if you do not buy anything they can't get mad as most don't work on commission. It will boost that confidence. Also Mike Tyson (who's biography I am reading) would tell himself over and over that he is the best boxer. Tell yourself positive things about traits you lack in, eventually you will believe it enough to talk to anyone.

    I know a lot of techniques bro, but sometimes I am very anxious, sometimes I'm the most crazy bastard in this city. I can not figure out myself.

    Well am somewhere in the middle, really depends on my mood. For example if i am hitting d clubs and i drink i can just sit somewhere or walk around and if some girls tries to talk to me i act like retard and she thinks am retard because am shy.

    Other day i go to same club drink same amount of alco and just walk around dance a bit sit and if girl speaks with me i talk with her like normal guy and get what i want :D but this is rarely happens when i drink because i am always in bad mood most of the time. If i go to tha same club and dont drink but take some magic pils (eks) :D am king of the party usually next day my phone is full of numbers my lips are faling off :D and my fb gets many friend invites from sexy chicks. Personal record met 26 chicks in 3 h. Sexy chicks rating 6++. But thats cos of drugs they change harmones in the brain and my shy side goes away. Dopamine +Serotonin. Working on myself to be more confident without any drugs now cos drugs fucks up motivation and kidneys. Ina year will be 100% confident i know.

    Gym + IM====SUCCccESss in everything....

    I am socially axious in 70% of the time. Trying to change myself hate being shy most of the time. But when am not i can get most girls easily. When am back to my home country (Latvia) i am much more confident, but where i live at the moment i feel shy most of the time. Maybe because of the English which is not my first language and i have difficulties ( when am not on pils) communicating with chicks in d club.

    Extrovert turned introvert. I've grown to keep to myself and I've learned so much about my true authenticity and passions. Now just flowing with life and life flowing with me.

    Wow one every seven minutes, that must be some record, I doubt my mate Charlie Floate could even match that.

    Did you have sex with those 26 chicks in 3 hours? What did you do to them in such a short time?
