I think too many people use this term without correctly understanding what it means. People who are truly anti social tend to be inconsiderate of others and can be more likely to a life of crime. It is not normal, as it is considered a personality disorder. However, if you are referring to anti social as someone who is perhaps a bit introverted, then yes it is normal. Sometimes I do not like people, so I can't blame them.
I am extremely anti social. I can't even take it anymore. You social people don't even know how lucky you all are. i avoid my family and friends. i hate leaving the house. and sometimes even people now. i am very socially awkward. and no it's not normal. I'm getting help soon.

Some people are just very withdrawn and consequently they are antisocial, and it is normal for them, for people with A type personalities it is however not normal for them to be that way, but like they say that's what makes a ballgame, we are all different so if somebody is not like you don't knock them for being that way because they could knock you for being the way that you are, and that WOULD be abnormal...)

People become anti social because of many reasons, I for example am anti social around those around me in school because they have treated me in a very negative way. I grew up with fear of people and the fact that I am not accepted no matter what I do made me anti social. Other people become anti social, like soldiers who come back from war, because they sometimes feel that people will not comprehend the horrors from the war, scared for life and detached from society. Other people enjoy being alone, quiet, and away from the noise and rotten society (most of the time) that speaks about gossip and slows down our progress as humans. It is all about finding those who care for you, have the same interest as you, and trying new things to open up in order to move on in life.
Usually socially awkward people have had or have bad things going on in their lives, but usually this causes anger issues;people are also socially awkward, because of their personality,uncomforted or they may just have a lot going on;hope this helps
what do you think makes you anti social think about that and see if you can do something about it then try to join a club that you feel will help you make friends then maybe watch the real life drawings dove soap commercial it may sound stupid to you but it is very sweet and try to let your guard down a bit
Many reasons...shy, afraid of fitting in, social anxiety. Could also be from being hurt too many times, made fun of/bullied, mistreated by too many people. Could also be from trust issues, usually because they're trust has been broken frequently. Some people like myself aren't a people person. I've never been much of a social butterfly or one to hang out with bunches of people or go to big parties/gatherings. I have a couple of very close friends, other than that I only spend time with family. I'm not rude or antisocial, I am a recluse. This is "normal" for some people. The problem with defining normal is who created what is considered normal and every person is different. My wife is very social and loves to speak to/with people. I on the other hand don't prefer the company of others very often. Her being a social butterfly is normal for her and being a recluse is normal for me. To be considered abnormal or antisocial means you lack people skills, respect and thought of others. A true antisocial person is all about himself and cannot properly speak to or get along with others. A recluse like myself prefers not to have much company but still is respectful to and treats others right.
I don't like Facebook, Twitter and Myspace (for those old enough to remember) or any other sites like them. I just don't like to be part of the mainstream. I sit in the back row and keep an eye on everyone else. Ask is about as mainstream as I get.
