Introverts Unite!

I saw this pic on reddit a few weeks back.  (reddit post link)

 

 

Reading the captions made me giggle.  Thinking of how silly introverts are.  Uniting separately in their own homes.  Hehe.

The humor slowly faded when I realized that I am also an introvert.



Introverts + Strangers

As an introvert, I see social gatherings as a challenge.  It takes tremendous willpower, courage, and motivation to get me to go somewhere with a bunch of strangers.  Especially if the expectation at the event is that you should mingle with everyone there.

The way I feel about meeting strangers is similar to people’s mindset when dealing with someone who has the plague.  There is a distaste in your mouth.  Your stomach feels queasy.  You try to keep a distance from them.

With the plague, people have a good reason to act like this.  But with an introvert like myself, what am I so afraid of catching?

If anything, I might catch their infectious enthusiasm, humor, or wisdom.  There’s plenty of awesome people out there who I have yet to meet.

Yet when I’m at an event I always revert to my introverted self.

Perhaps I’m afraid of what people may think of me once we start talking.  At least if I keep to myself, I’ll always be a mystery to them.

Perhaps I have a limit on how many relationships I can juggle at once.  With more people, even if they are just acquaintances, it overburdens my emotional capacity.  Since I’m an introvert and only have a few quality relationships, I go out of my way to protect those few that I do have.  I know how hard it would be to find another one.  So I push others away, to ensure the health of my current relationships.

Perhaps I am a control freak when it comes to my personal space.  At home, I can re-arrange things how I like it.  Everything is predictable when I’m by myself.  Out there, not so much.  I have less control in the real world.  People tend to do things that I least expect.  And I find that extremely intimidating.



Introverts + Family & Friends

I don’t really mind going to places where I know most of the people there like family get-togethers or parties with friends.

FB Status Update: Auto-Correct Fail

Emailing my friend about my work schedule tomorrow.

Wanted to say “I’m shooting all over fort worth tomorrow.”

Instead it types “Im shitting all over fort worth tomorrow.“

Thanks auto correct for making me sound like I have a serious digestive problem.

Perhaps I should just carry a toilet paper around with me instead of my camera.

That’ll definitely get my clients to take my work more seriously.

New Video: Think Like A Dog

Just posted a video of me playing a dog.

I came up with the concept for this after doing a bunch of “Shit … Says” Videos (Shit Beliebers Say, Shit Drunk Girls Says).  I was thinking it’d be funny to see what a Dog would really say to us, if they could talk and we could understand.

My favorite part of the video would definitely be the belly rub.  I could never understand why dogs seemed to love that so much.  It’s like they are super-sensitive down there.  In the video I equated the dog belly rub to the best feelings humans can have: sex.  Hopefully it doesn’t offend any dog lovers out there … :).

The hardest thing about making this video is always being on all fours.  Human body were never made to be on all fours all the time.  I noticed my knees being soft and tender mid way through the shoot.  I tried once to run on all fours like a dog.  Bad idea!

I changed the title from “Shit Dogs Says” to “Think Like A Dog” because last Friday a new movie came out called “Think Like A Man” with Kevin Hart.

I thought it would be great to promote my video as an unofficial sequel to the movie.  I was trying to piggy back on all the popularity from the #1 video during its opening weekend.

We’ll see how many more views that little stunt will give me.

I recorded more then I could chew off, so expect a second video when I get around to producing it.

Equipment used:

  1. Camera:  Canon 3ti
  2. Lens: Canon 18-135mm efs f/3.5-5.6
  3. Audio:  Rode VideoMic Pro
  4. Editing:  Adobe Premiere CS5
