Annual performance peer review
Person who did review me wrote in the section “skills needed to improve”:
“He is introverted...”
Bloody hell!! What a big problem :) and how in earth you can “fix” it? And why everyone expected to be extraverted??11
Stuck at a concert for band my girlfriend likes on a Friday night... so many side projects could be worked on right now1
Here's how I imagine my bad start on a new job would be:
1. Being introverted
2. Being introverted
3. Being introverted
Yep, I'm awkward most of the times in most social interactions irl outside of my friend circle.7
Why am I so introvert ?
The statistics's homework was 63 problems and the prof said that we can solve them in groups so each person will have to solve less problems .
But me ! No friends , no group ! Must solve all of them on my own :(12
Cousin sis who was brought up abroad is back in the country, looking for further education opportunities.
Says she wants to study graphic design but from the short interaction i had, it seems she has no fucking idea about the basics of what goes into graphic design. Neither does her parents.
Haven't seen or heard any work or hobby from her that would make one think she has interest in graphic design.
Asked whether she tried doing some design and it seems she is not even aware of tools like Photoshop or illustrator.
It doesn't help that she barely talks at all and wants to get back to her phone. Compared to her, i feel like an extrovert lol.
People who barely interacts or expresses are cringey to talk to.
Trying to talk to her, I feel like looking at myself from 10 years ago.
The point is - learn to talk more. It can help you a lot in life.8
Why do people push me to publicly speak? I'm an introvert.
I may have said yes to every meeting from now until the near future, changing that right now.3
I've became sort of an introvert over the years, because of bad relationships.
I started uni this year, and I thought I could make some good new friends.
The majority of them are 18+, but they seem like 10...
Stupid and dumb conversations, and during classes they are always laughing and talking...
And I have concentration problems, and with everyone talking is hard to concentrate.
This is going to be a hard year.....8
Ever teamed up with coders/developers you personally don't like.
Also suggest some techniques how to LIVE through, gracefully. :/3
So i have a question for you... Do you have any experience with working in a foreign country?
If so, what were your expectations / experiences and where was that location?
I am super curious, since i am not really happy in the country i currently live in and want soon make an approach of going to the most tech-influenced countries in the world - Japan. (Will be still a while until i get there, but i want to gather as many informations about working abroad as possible)
I am of course open to any questions as well, since many people wonder, why tf japan?
Q: Why Japan?
A: Japan has one of the most interesting cultures, as well as their technology became pretty popular and famous over the years, as well as i am an introvert and no one there would bother you with crap.
Q: You know about the working times, right?
A: Yes, completly! I love my job therefore i have (at least for now) no problems with working a good amount of hours / week.
Q: Are you a weeb?
A: No, i don't watch a lot of Anime, i do but just if i have nothing better to do and i find a show i really like.
Also: Please share your experiences, would help me a lot. If any question are left, don't hesitate ! :D12
My next project is a functional fitness/crossfit application and my client requires me to attend and participate sessions with them in order for me to understand and appreciate the sport. I got the point but OMG I only know sports via tv,youtube,etc.. and not really fun of socializing. I might die doing this project. Help me!4
That moment people assume you don't know things because you are generally quiet because they are around their friends. Uhm, I got the job and had to go through months of interviews, tests, video chats, probation periods and got the job almost 3 months earlier than I should and got promoted to a better team, you don't see me trying to demean your job as a call center consultant here around all the developers I know. Just lemme drink my coffee in peace :(
It seems now that every weekend all I want to do is just not be around people.
During the week I grin and bear it, the fact that I'm going to have to see, be around and interact with people but the one time I don't have to is the weekend, but that's the time that other people always want to do things.
Why? Why is it so hard to explain to people that a lot of the time, I just need to not? I just need to not be around people, to interact with them in any way. I just want to be on my own, away from it all. Why is it such a difficult concept to grasp?3
When you have friends who think staying home during Saturday and Sunday is wastage of the weekend while you hate going out 🙁4
