5)Before and after events, the performers must not mingle with the crowds. In fact, the less of the interpersonal exchange before and after concerts the better. This is especially true for the vocalist. The subtle psychological perceptions by the crowd due to the hypnosis will be destroyed once they see you in a normal light. The performer will loose their gained position of "superiority". This can easily be done by saying something stupid in coversation, being shorter in stature that those who talk to in the crowd. You will have broken the "myth".
Right on, but his myth is bigger than 5'4''.

As a very keen concert goer who has literally been to over 400 concerts, I know what you are saying... as you are not a people person then I guess what you are doing is basically the only way to get the crowd response so keep doing it and good luck.
Another few things that crowds seem to like:
1) Watching the singer drinking alcohol or smoking... down (or pretend to) down a can of beer, you will get cheers.
2) Demand circle/mosh pits (if crowd already seems lively enough)
3) Standard: "Are you having a good time?" "I CANT FU**ING HEAR YOU!, ARE YOU HAVING A GOOD TIME!?!?"
4) Before a heavy song: "I wanna see you motherf**ers jump/go crazy/etc"
5) Some seem to like spitting a lot
6) Getting close to the crowd
