I hope you’re having a great day! I am! Today I wanted to talk about something I’ve been thinking about lately, and by that I mean for the past year or so, because it always surprises me.
I don’t know if you know, but I made a post called I’m Shy and I Hate It some days ago, and writing that post got me an idea to make another post: dis one. 😜
So get ready for Introverts vs Extroverts!!!!!
Nah, just kidding, I’m not gonna make a list like I used to do in old times, today I’m gonna make a rant.
Ok, so I don’t like to call myself names. I don’t think I’m too much of an introvert, however I don’t think of myself as an extrovert. At all. I’m shy and I really enjoy being alone. However I like talking to people and I like being around people. If they’re nice, of course. 😅
I’m not what you would call “popular”, I’m not that in my current school, not my other school, nor anywhere. But there’s people in my class who were in my old school who are good at making new friends and all. They always know what to say.
They’re extroverts to a point where they disrespect teachers and don’t hesitate nor regret it. Some people would like to do that too, but they don’t do it, not cause it’s rude, but because they’re not so confident to do so.
I would fall into the second category, however I never feel like disrespecting anyone.
Now let’s talk class projects, which leads to the point of this post.
So logically and mathematically its easier for an extrovert to talk in front of the class and harder for someone with less confidence and who’s shy. However, that doesn’t mean no one gets nervous. We all get nervous. AF.
I don’t know about you, but all the times we’ve done presentations, I haven’t been too nervous. My arms would shake and stuff, but meh. I always practice before a presentation, cause that gives me more confidence and makes me do better.
But it seemed like everyone else was shitting their pants. Especially who? Yeah, the extroverts.
If you don’t believe me, I’m not even kidding, this may not be a rule of thumb, but it’s true and has always been true in my case. Some of the extroverts were so nervous they even cried. Yeah. In front of the class.
As if the presentation itself wasn’t embarrassing enough 😑
Anyway, we can’t control that. Or can we?
That leads to my next point. I remember my economy teacher said that a good way not to get nervous was to practice more. And it’s true. Why wasn’t I so nervous if that wasn’t true?
There was this other girl in my class about a year ago who was like me in the way that we both prepared our
sh*t and all. I don’t get why she was super nervous though.
Ok, we gotta take into consideration that no one practiced and they couldn’t memorize
sh*t, but also when the maths teacher picked someone to do the homework on the board, the extroverts refused, and so did some introverts. But the thing is, most introverts did it.
Well, maybe some introverts were shy enough to refuse, I have to give them that.
Still I don’t get it.
Some people have insecurities for some stuff and be confident for something else and vice versa. It’s just weird how each of us’ brains work. Psychology is effed up.
- If ya wanna do something well, work on it, it’ll give you the confidence.
- You can be shy and a good public speaker at the same time.
- You can be an extrovert and have more trust issues than introverts.
- Study. Just study.
Share your thoughts with me!
