At the ripe age of 29 and going on 30 I’ve learned a number of things throughout life. I’ve been gifted with the ability to read behavior and decipher even the most complex social engagements. I’ve noticed a number of behavioral traits in people that have large social circles, business contacts, and generally people who have achieved a certain degree of success and achievement.
I think most of us today in modern society have some level of social anxiety. A little bit of social anxiety is normal. In fact, we probably evolved to be anxious in groups so we don’t piss people off and get kicked out of the tribe. This would mean certain death in the days of old. It’s a survival mechanism that’s been with us since the ape days.
