For me it depends on the situation but if I had to pick one it would be mostly shy. The more comfortable I am/get in a situation then the more outgoing I become. However, there have been plenty of moments where I wish I could have been more outgoing. . .
I'm outgoing and nope :)xxx
Oddly enough, I was painfully shy as a child and am VERY outgoing now. Having seen both sides, I much prefer being outgoing.
I've never been shy. Quiet, maybe. I used to be quiet. Now I'd say I'm more on the outgoing side. I'm better one on one than in groups. Overall, once you get me talking, it's really hard to shut me up.
I think I'm kind of both. It really depends on the situation and the kind of mood I'm in that day. Sometimes I have no problem talking to total strangers, like when I'm out shopping or something, and other times, I just want to be left alone, like when I'm on an airplane. I often wish I could be more outgoing, but I am just not that great of a conversationalist.
In real life, I am an introvert. I put on a teacher's hat when I walk into a classroom and I must put on a blogger's hat when I blog.
I think for me depends on the situation. But I am not shy ... reluctant may be! :) ♡ from © tanvii.com
I'm outgoing for sure, but I have my days when I don't really want to communicate. I'm kind of shy too and I prefer to be left alone sometimes. It depends on the mood, the people, the situation...
When I meet new people I'm shy at first but when I get to know(and like) them I'm outgoing.
I was shy for so long in my life, up until I was about 14 or so. I remember crying when my mother made me phone my grandfather - I couldn't speak a word. I don't even remember how it happened, but I worked in retail which I'm sure helped. Now I'm quite outgoing, but of course a lot of it is "fake it till you feel it", you know? Not a false confidence, but sometimes the clothes become the armour. Being outgoing is a learned thing for me.
If you know me I.R.L., you'd think I'm ueber ocnfident and outgoing (I'm a loud mouth with sassy comments) but it's all just the mask I put on to hide the fact that when I walk into a room of people, my knees knock together and I want to hurl. Its quite crazy and doesn't make sense. However, by being loud and such, people don't get a chance to know and then can't tease you and it's amazing how many shy people I know use this stunt.
Fascinating stories, guys. Thanks for sharing.
I'm very outgoing... and sometimes I wish I wasn't. When I get nervous, I tend to 'word vomit,' which is good and bad... haha.HAPPY EASTER!
I can be a bit of both. Sometimes when I am in shy mode I wish I could kick into outgoing. But for the most part I have been able to become more out going.
Oh my. I am incredibly shy...it is easier for me to shine through with a blog but in real life it is hard for me to talk to people. I have a social phobia.
I've always been outgoing. Actually, I would consider myself the most easygoing person in the universe. Almost too easygoing haha. It really takes A LOT for me to get really angry/upset/embarrassed. I suppose this is why I don't really have a problem talking to anyone or saying whatever comes to mind. What's the worst that can happen? haha seriously? If someone doesn't like my personality, I don't really care too much. After all, not everyone on Earth can like you. That's always the way I think haha.
I am shy and antisocial in real life and it makes life less complicated. I have learned that the more friends you have and people you are close with the more problems you have. Blogging is nice because you have friends from afar and you can choose how much or how little you want them to know about you. I sometimes have a hard time putting myself out there with my blog but I am am slowly becoming more outgoing with it.
I grew up shy as hell and I still am to an extent, but I've been able to better differentiate the situations that warrant a more outgoing personality.
OMG, I'm beyond shy and I so wish that I had a more outgoing personality. My shyness is mostly because of my insecurities, which I think that lately I have been actively working on. So making the changes to be more outgoing.How about you?
I am mostly shy, however I really make an effort to try and not be :)
Like a lot of the others, for me, it depends on the situation and who I'm around at the time, but I think I fall somewhere in the middle but a little more towards outgoing. I'm a different person in a crowd of strangers than I am with a crowd of friends. Even when I'm feeling a little shy, I think I've learned how to make conversation and ask questions that open up lines of communication to keep myself and the others from feeling awkward. I used to be much shyer, but now I try to assume that people like me rather than assuming they don't, and that helps a lot!! My Leo sun sign makes me want the spotlight, but my Virgo moon tempers it and adds the shy part, so I've read. :)
The way you see me in my vlogs which, yes, are surprisingly difficult to make (you don't know until you try!!), is exactly how I am in real life. The way I write is exactly how I speak. I used to be wayyyy shy. I can still be very shy until I feel comfortable. Otherwise, I am super outgoing. I have no shame. I will do the most ridiculous shit anyone has ever thought of. I talk to strangers. I act like an idiot. I poledance. (Not for money.)(Well, not anymore.) I try to have fun with life, and if I am busy being shy and scared, then I am not having fun. I have fun when I act like my crazy, outgoing self. And I love it. http://www.glamkittenslitterbox.com/Twitter: @GlamKitten88
It depends who I'm with. For some reason I can't break out of my shell at work, however in my normal life I'm very outgoing and loud.
It fluctuates depending on the phase of life and the surroundings I find myself in. As a small child I was really outgoing, I then became super shy during school when my family moved to a different city, and today I'm rather outgoing with friends but may be somewhat shy with strangers. I'm hiding it well, though.
With people I'm unsure about, I tend to be quiet and introverted. With people I know, I'm quite BIG (big mouth, big gestures, big opinions, big laugh). If anything, I wish I could do small talk. That skill is very useful.
I guess when I was younger (at school and after) I was painfully shy - For me it was learning to like myself - once I had that undert the belt...I definately became more confident - Now if I am in a situation that I am comfortable with, it is easy to be outgoing and confident...If I am uncomfortable, I try to fake it - sometimes sucessfully and sometimes unsuccessfully....Love n Bubbles
I'm very shy, mostly because I'm so worried about what people think about me. But I can be outgoing once I feel comfortable around someone.
this seem to be difficult to answer....i used to be really shy to the point that I never go out the house even if my friends were outside calling me at the gate, I would tell my brothers to tell them i was'nt home. my parents would push me to join extra curricular activities wc made it even feel so uncomfortable and scary- to overcome this shyness...?But now, -- i wonder how it changed...i would'nt be posting my pictures in the internet if i still am were...I guess people here in America really don't bother to talk/mock about physical appearance...
