Get out of your self-absorption

Being too full of yourself was never a good thing and it still isn't. You will never be able to appreciate others or find them interesting if you always think you're superior. Step out of your self-absorption and start seeing the good in others. It is only after you get rid of your snobbish tag that you will become everybody's new favorite and hence realize that there are people who are as smart as you are.

Open up

It is pretty much a known fact that the extrovert guy has a lot more peers then one who is an introvert. This is because extroverts come across as friendly and a lot of fun while making an introvert come out of his shell is too much of a task for anyone. Opening up to others helps a lot in your discovery of interesting people. In fact, it will also make other approach you because of your friendly demeanour.

While not all of them might fit the bill, some of them might definitely be worth your time and attention. (Special Features, MensXP.com)
