I'd rather fly the plane than jump out of it

I'd rather be behind the camera lense than in front of it.
I'd rather write the play than be a star in it.
I'd rather report on an event than be in.

Does that make me anti-social?

Signs I might be anti-social:
I'm always "unavailable" to chat on Facebook.
I rarely answer my phone
I'd rather be reading a book than shopping

I guess that cinches it.
I'm anti-social.

Although, Wikipedia says this:  In common English vernacular; anti-social is often used to describe those perceived to be excessively introverted, an incorrect though increasingly common usage. The correct term for an introverted person who is "not social" would be asocial; asocial means "avoidance of society" while antisocial means "hostile toward society".

OK, maybe I'm more asocial...

What are YOU?

I'd rather be the surgeon than the guy on the operating table, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't make me an introvert.

Preferring to be the pilot, photographer and writer just makes you a creative person who prefers to control rather than being dictated too.

I like the word asocial. That's me too.

I'm going with asocial. I like to pick my times to be around lots of people. Good word, there. Thanks. I'm definitely NOT anti-social -- except, for my neighbor's kid...
