I guess it's a problem of the mind. The #in mind. Sociology says people stereotype, it's normal and there's truth in stereotyping. But to me
everyone seems to be a boring stereotype.
I was mostly a quiet person. Certain events made it worse. During grade school it was normal, during high school not. With friends however I'm
talkative, strangers I have no problem with.
Now that I feel more comfortable again, I'm still quiet in certain situations. I first thought something was wrong with me. It shall be part of the
problem. But as more as I think about it. Sometimes I don't want to say anything. Other times I just want to listen to people since I can't talk
about the subject. But most often there are times that the people are actually just #in boring and talking about poo that doesn't interest me at
I wondered why I wasn't really social. Part of the problem had to do with shyness and all sorts of #. But now I'm not such a shy person anymore. The
friends that I have are actually not satisfying at all. It's more like a mutual relationship, it's okay because I can go on vacation or go out or
whatever. But in reality they mean little to me.
For one I don't feel any connection to them. Possibly because to me they are all aliens. When I felt depressed for a long time I felt like I was a
alien, but as I grow more and more comfortable in my own skin I feel like the people around me are aliens.
Stereotypical boring people. I guess it's my fault for not getting to know people enough. People at college, I could all put them into stereotypes.
They all have somewhat the same interests. All people around me seem to be stereotypes. They are predictable and boring.
Maybe I have too high expectations for what I would think of as interesting people. Fiction probably has a bad influence on me. There are many
characters that I find interesting.
Whenever peers talk, they talk poo. I have been on Facebook for a while, I admit that I feel uncomfortable with it.
But the poo that get's shared. It's boring and predictable. Someone shows his interests, all conform the stereotype image I have.
I wish I would meet someone who I couldn't place in any stereotype, someone interesting, someone different. Someone I'm like:
"The amazing poo that comes out of you is disturbing. Holy # what are you?"
Someone that breaks the laws of stereotypes. Sure there are people that are different, but most still conform to a stereotype. There are people for
example that oppose things, but they instead conform to a different stereotype. Goths become Goths. Hipsters find the main stream in non-mainstream.
You have people opposing something and they turn out to be the equally bad opposite side of the norm. Rarely do you see a left person bashing a left
issue, most of the time they are right, and vice versa.
I like how here there is a huge diversity of people here on ATS, and there's a lot of openness, but quite some still seem to conform to a certain
stereotype. I'm sure however the same can be said about me.
There's also a humor site I'm on, I like the people there, but sometimes when they are more serious I release they are pretty darn stereotypical.
I guess I need to go out there more and get to know people more. For sure most people are more interesting 1 on 1. And I'll find my escapist paradise
on here and the humor site.
