This.

For the younger ISHers dealing with this. Go out and get a summer job that forces you to interact with strangers. It might be something in sales, might be something like handing out shit on the street, working some booths at festivals, maybe even join student groups (though I didn't do this)...anything with and around people...just go out and do it. It's hard at first but you will thank yourself later. I used to SUCK at holding conversations with people other than my friends, and couple of years ago in the summer I did face to face sales, went to couple of conventions and just interacted with hundreds of people a day. Your social skills just go through the roof if you put yourself through something like this. It's all about putting yourself in a situation enough times that you feel at ease with it.
