Well, I am not the diagnostician, but I don't think it's social phobia. It's more about avoiding particularly difficult situations. Kinda like, "hey, I don't have to take this," and people are like, "take what?"

I'm actually somewhat adept socially, insofar as I can talk my way into things, and can get strangers to open up to me on demand. I don't socialize for socialization sake though. More like social indifference than social phobia. Had work that required social skills, and I more or less aced that, when I wanted to. It's situations where I've concluded in my mind that the social game is a farce - where people are pretending and I know there's a back story. And I'm a smart guy.

It's almost like a psychic injury, but I don't think I know people's games by way of psychic access - I know them from having solid mental skills. Sort of the way voice recognition algorithms work - I tend to remember what was said in what context, whereas others might focus more on the requirements of the current social context.

Am I obfuscating, or does this make sense?
