W is for Webtrovert, #AtoZChallenge

Today’s textspeak is one of my favorites so far (and likely will be my favorite overall, since we’re close to the end and all).

Some people are people persons. They’re charming, outgoing, and generally thrive on being around other people. I am not one of those people. But maybe you wouldn’t know that if you only know me fromย my amazeballs online personality. Well, unless you’ve read one of the 164ย posts where I mentioned being introverted and having the social anxiety. I am webtroverted to the nth degree.

The Internet is awesome for introverts, isn’t it? We can be in complete control of our social stuff without having to put ourselves out there more than we are comfortable with or face the judgment that comes with diligently checking stuff on the phone and ignoring people.

Long live webtroversion.

Alternative meaning: None.

Textspeak I passed up: WTF (what the fuck), WITW (what in the world), WTG (way to go), WYD (what you doing).

Are you webtroverted?

  1. Yes, I am webtroverted. And for me, I’m not shy, not terribly awkward, but I just never will be a people person and boy does real life interaction wear me out! The internet though, can be invigorating. I’m so grateful the internet let me meet many other introverts. I had no idea there were so many readers, sufferers of anxiety, or door fanatics out there!

  2. I’m totally a webtrovert. Are you familiar with Second Life? It’s not a game, it’s just an online virtual community. I was on their a lot when I was agoraphobic and I was anything but an introvert. You should check it out.

  3. Yes, I think I am, but I might be less of an introvert if I didn’t have social anxiety and aspergers, but you never know. I am fine with being an introvert and webtrovert though mostly, it just sicks when there is something you really want to do but your head has other plans so you stay in instead alone… Good thing I have bunnies^^

  4. Yep, I’m a webtrovert! I’m much more chatty online then I am in person. Although once I’ve known you for a while, I’m chatty in person too. But “meeting” people online, there’s no shy moments, it’s just yakkity yak from the word go ๐Ÿ™‚
