I wanted to start a list of these. Here's my number one:

  • Barbeques
Stand around and chit-chat and play horseshoes just to be social? I get shivers down my spine just imagining the idea.

I'm gone!

God, yes! Phone calls! I get so nervous, trying to figure out how to hang up. I'm trapped. Thank goodness for solitaire games to make me feel less trapped.

But, if you're female, you'd have the curse of being invited to Tupperware Parties, or Amway parties or make up parties. It's awkward to say no but if you go to one of those things, it's bad. Do they still do those parties? I haven't been asked to go to one for a long time .

    *parties

You can`t go wrong with sushi, that`s for sure. :)

On the subject of eating, one thing about NTs that I find weird is that they seem to be averse to eating out alone. I find it weird, as the purpose of going to a restaurant should be to enjoy good food, not to try talking to people when eating. A lot of my coworkers don`t even like eating lunch alone, they`ll often sit beside me but don`t bother saying a word, and it`s just because they don`t want to be seen eating alone. :?

i do not get how people HAVE to go out with other people, i hate eating with other people... aside from my parents... i do not like talking while i am eating especially since i got this disease as ill start choking on s**t :lol: so yeah... going out to eat and socialize at the same time = LAME

going out to eat the true purpose is the FOOD not the f*****g socialization..

why the f**k are NT's so centered around SOCIAL SOCIAL SOCIAL... f*****g socialites

Not doing what comes unnaturally topic

Any social gatherings consisting chiefly of incessent chit chat drive me just batty. But if that is what NTs are loathe to do, let them go. :roll:

Well, I haven't been to one since I had any control over my life. So a long time. Back then, sometimes there would be things like horseshoes. With or without, barbeques are horrible to imagine. Not the food, that's fine. The situation.
