Re: 6 Misleading Assumptions You Make About Quiet People
Are you not a cop? Funny thing, DHS and cohorts are too stupid to realize it is the quite ones to look out for. I am a bitch and like to make my comments but I would never ever do something wrong or harmful. However, I do wish doom upon this place. Wishful thinking and magic work much better and there is not a fucking thing you can do about that. You are a gubertroll.

Strange post; why the hate?
 Quoting: UseLess RepEATER


Why the hate you ask? Just look at our world and evil that is done to so many of earth's inhabitants. We have greedy, stupid people running this place and they are allowed to do so by our employees which they deem their employees. I hate this place because ego maniacs are running it. I do hope we have some major nature doom or a big fucking solar flare to knock the power out of power. Then and only then will egos be set aside. We are not evolved enough for the tech that intelligent/evolved people delivered to the governments of this world. I hope the ET's come and wreak havoc on this place.

Re: 6 Misleading Assumptions You Make About Quiet People
I am usually silent, because even though i love a good debate i hate arguments. I speak when i feel the desire to do so.

When you are engaging in a real life conversation, And someone is talking. The more you don't say anything the more they keep talking.. They think you want them to keep talking just because you are silent. It makes them uneasy.
 Quoting: Qarley


I feel this way when I am riding in a car with someone I don't know well. Rather than savoring the silence, I purposefully make "small talk" to avoid feeling awkward.

It doesn't make me feel awkward anymore. Silence has a way of making people feel like they need to talk. I would prefer to wait until something profound comes up. People would be surprised the amount of communication that can take place with just body language alone.

Hey Trav, I work in a similar type of job: what would you say the level of "informed" individuals is in your ranks?
More specifically as it relates to militarization of PD's, TSA spread, DHS, Agenda 21, etc.?

THIS is my own take on the "Ask me a question threads..... There are THOUSANDS of people (RIGHT NOW) reading these posts... MOST are silent... Lurkers if you will.

I simply thought, if I find a way to connect to the silent, perhaps they will not be SILENT!

I do really well at reading a person and giving the lead to them on conversation. However in a place such as this, where like minded people exist. I engage more often than in real life. In real life i have to struggle to bring myself on theie level.

Now in a place like this when it comes to lurkers. I see MANY different reasons as to why people would stay silent. Fear, possessing knowledge, gaining knowledge, specific personality types...

It's not that I don't like to talk, I can't be bothered talking to people who don't get it. I can't be bothered with haters, who immediately start the name calling because their intellect is in the double digit range and they can't formulate a coherent response.

I don't consider my silence a prison. I've found it to be quite liberating. I choose what I say, and to whom I say it, very carefully.

There are some on this forum, including you Travis, that I will (and do) talk to. Most people though? Meh. Not worth the effort.

Re: 6 Misleading Assumptions You Make About Quiet People
I'm a lurker for the most part here but being an ac has a contribution to the reason why.

Granted, as much that i'm an introvert, i tend to find more peace in the times i'm by myself. I don't have to worry about other people pulling my mind out of something profound, mysterious, or wondrous with their bullshit talks of what they did for the day, what someone made for food, their little kids progress in school, a new car someone bought, politics they know nothing about, gossip, or who's gonna be next on dancing with the stars. I guess it's the small talk I despise.

Not to mention, the bridge between strangers and associates is the hardest part going through. Mostly because of trust, however I open so easily to those who already know how to dream and fly. I wear my heart of my sleeves, never hurt a fly, and speak only truth so it's easy for me to be taken advantage of. Not so much gullible as I am overlooking as I don't fair for confrontations. It's dust off my shoulders from people of the sort, which is plenty, i've come to notice.

Not everyone is on the path of knowledge and awareness as I am so relate-ability comes difficult to the average person too. Because of this, I sort of stood by a ''don't ask,don't tell'' policy while at the same time a ''Ask and all doors shall be opened'' philosophy. I would think the introverted tendencies would display this kind of thing to any onlooker considering our type is always thinking.

It doesn't help that I also sit on the edge of madness and that it took me 15min to type this out.
