The majority of us (if not all) have a struggle on our hands to make friendships due to our shyness. It's tough when it comes to breaking the ice, and talking to other people, right?
Whether you're on your own or in your comfort zone with a family member or long time friend, how do you act when you're enjoying the things you love to do, and watch, such as your favourite sports team, going to a gig/concert etc?
Do you have the courage to chant, cheer, and SCREAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM or do you easily get embarrassed, and just watch in silence while the crowd's around you enjoy their experience with natural confidence?
If I paid $600 for a ticket, I certainly don't want to spend the entire time listening to some moron scream in my ear.
Agreed completely (though I've never paid more than $200 for a ticket to anything). I don't understand people who go to a game just to get drunk and loud. Or those people who go to a concert to smoke marijuana.
But having said that, I certainly cheer and chant at games when my favorite team scores a goal or there's a bad call, or an almost goal, etc. I'm not going to stand there and chant "Ref you suck" for the entire game as I've heard others. But yeah, I'm vocal (at least vocal for me) at these things. I'll sing and dance at concerts (though not as confidently as I cheer at games). It all depends on who I'm with. If I'm with someone who is louder/more outgoing than me than I'm usually louder than usual. If I'm by myself or with someone who's not as loud as me (rare but they're out there) then I'm not quite as loud but still actively watching and clapping, etc.
If I'm watching a band that I love I always sing along as much as I can and if I'm watching my football team I'll always cheer for a goal. I never scream though, as much as I get into the things I love I'm still aware that I'm around other people.
