I feel like I am pretty social… I can be quiet and awkward but it helps if the other person is talkative…
Actually my story is as follows.
In my premorbid stage, from tender age till about 20, I was introverted and I was afraid to talk to people
and form social bonds.
From the onset of my schizophrenia at about the age of 20, I gradually became more sociable and
started initiating coversations with people, including even with strangers.
Now I am very sociable, and good at initiating coversations under the right circumstances.
And I am eager to talk to people and form social bonds.
I’m pretty social, but I have terrible social skills so most people don’t like me. I’ve been told I’m too nice and it makes people not trust me.
That’s good you have gotten more social!
HAHA! I think that’s the same thing with me… I’m really not rude… and I think that’s a turn off for people for some reason
It makes people think we have a hidden agenda
Which is odd… maybe we are just genuinely nice people… is that not a real thing?
I’m more sociable when I’m not in bad circumstances, like now.
More typically good making aquaintances rather than close friends, most people just use me anyway
It’s real, but not common
Me? Hah. No. I can fake it in short bursts, but after maybe 30 seconds around someone I’m looking for the exit. Also, this shirt?
I emailed the company and asked if they have a version that changes SOME to ALL.
HA! That would be a pretty awesome shirt
Pretty social yeah
I tend to isolate, but can be social.
Not social. I avoid socializing face to face other than my family. My friends (all two of them lol) I mostly text with. Occasionally we used to go out for breakfast or lunch. Even then I often cancelled. I like being home and hanging out with my kids.
An extroverted introvert. I can fake it for a little bit, then I make like a tree and leave.
With meds I’m socially good but I prefer to be alone.
I’m not as friendly as I used to be I hate when people just start talking to me unless it’s important.
Im not very good at socializing my social skills are low i even have dificulty with eye contact yes i do have friends but i dont consider myself an extrovert.
I am social for brief periods. Then I retreat lol
