    For some reason it pisses me off royally when I run into service members (of any branch) that are quiet and act like a little kid who doesn't know how to speak.

    Everything they say is a fucking mumble.


    Maybe it is just me becoming impatient, but open your fucking mouth and use your big boy voice!

    IN. Not timid. But I am quiet. Unlike most people, if I have nothing interesting to say, I keep my mouth closed.

    Well, I guess you would hate me then, eh? If I don't have anything interesting to say or just don't plain out feel like saying anything to you then I'm not. People in my unit wonder if I ever talk.

    I don't expect someone to have something to say all the time, but for them to act like their entire family was murdered every single day pisses me off.

    Miserable fucks :fawk:

    quiet ones are usually wise and smart. it's the one that constantly open their mouth are full of shit. if you're talking more than you're listening, you're full of it.

    If we're going to compare the two extremes of communication style, I prefer the quiet guys to the loud and obnoxious. Unless they are also timid. Timid guys deserve the ass raping they get.

    I'm not really referring to the obnoxious types, but for example seeing someone on a daily basis and every day you say good morning or anything for that matter to them, yet their response if any is always some little mumble as if they are a kid.

    Why is mumbling a response "child-like"?

    Personally I see the louder more arrogant people as more child like. They tend to be so phoney. While I post quite a bit, I do not speak often. But when I do at least people know that I really mean what it is that I say and am being genuine.

    Also, sometimes you learn a lot more when you keep your trap shut.

    As for being timid. . . I don't see anything more child like about being timid than I do about being over confident/cocky.

    Because you should be able to communicate like an adult.

    Eh, I don't see how being socially reserved automatically means that you are immature. That's quite a leap.

    Personally I would rather talk to someone who is shy than with somone who is arrogant/cocky.

    When you exhibit confidence in your speach and body language, you have a much greater chance of people respecting you and your message. Appear timid and/or appear to lack confidence and you automatically start out with people doubting your message. Whether it is right or wrong is immaterial - it's a simple fact of life.
