But usually when I look at people I really don't care what they are like as long as they don't insult me or anything. I'm pretty tolerant with "weird" people.
I'm just asking if I might fit into a certain category where it is considered to be socially awkward.
I personally feel like I have met more "socially awkward" people since coming to law school (not necessarily in law school only); but then again, I also didn't know my classmates as well in undergrad where some classes were as large as 300 people...here, your whole year is but 550.
I don't think there is anything insulting about it. It is just...well...awkward. Imagine a hypothetical scenario where you are at a reception, go up to a young associate at a firm, and say hey X, how has it been? And he answers "good"...not in a mean way, just in a curt way. You ask a follow up question of what he's working on now; another one to two word response. He smiles and shuffles around, and silence ensues rather quickly. That is, in my mind, a good starting point for some social awkwardness haha.
