I wish I were a bit more outgoing and extroverted. In my entire life, I had no friends at all or had just close friends. Not many friends, because I can’t trust easily.
And sometimes I think, maybe that would be better if more people were in my life. And if someone offers a friendship to me, I can accept it, but then it takes a lot of time for me to know the person better and be a close friend.

Testing friendship bond
In response to your comment on trusting new friends, I can say that we, humans, are highly social, and therefore, we must trust others, to some extent. That would be some degree of xenophobia if we failed to trust new acquaintances, which in the long term, would seriously tighten and constrict the circle of our friends.
I guess it’s a better idea to be more optimistic about the decent intentions of new people around us. However, as a cautious and introverted person, I believe we need to evaluate and analyze new people and acquaintances’ behavior and give more and more credit to them as they successfully pass some benchmarks or criteria.

* so many friends
I like the way you respond to this situation. Sometimes, we cannot or even should not change some specific personality traits.

I prefer to control my emotions. I learned to be more cateious and think about anything before expressing my feelings or commenting about it.
And about friendship I usually try to know somebody to some extent before accepting their Freindship or making new friends.

I think you did not get the question right. There could be outgoing people who are cautious and thoughtful, as well. The question is all about gregariousness or sociability, and not specifically about controlling your emotions. We can talk about that in the class.
