Both act anxious in social settings though they at least had the skills to survive. You pretty much had to before our connected world. I don't feel like I picked up the bare minimum of social communication skill that they have.
"It's a gift to exist, and with existence comes suffering. There's no escaping that."
Neither of my parents did. But my father's father spent the last 7 or 8 years of his life in what they used to call a "nerve" hospital back in London. I have a feeling that might explain some of my problems.
To some degree, I guess they do but nothing like mine. My mom has strong SA tendencies but she also tends to go to random places and start awkward conversations with strangers. Which is very awkward when I am with her because most of the time you can tell the people are like "WTF lady? Leave me alone!"
She also starts weird conversations with people who come here to work on things. And again, you can tell the people are not wanting to be rude but also uncomfortable.
My dad certainly didn't, he was a very social. My mother tends to keep to herself though, she does get out but hates phone calls or dealing with people coming to the door. She get anxious about having to make decisions or the future.
