I'm thinking of ways that I can escape NEETdom because as much as everyone else glorifies it, it's really miserable when you as a grown man have no money of your own, living rent free and still being fed and supported by your parents, dependent on them to give you stuff for free that you didn't work for, and having nothing else going for you.

My autism and my social anxiety gets in the way because I don't like dealing with people. It's one of the reasons why I dropped out of college on top of the fact that I was getting burnt out. I was studying computer science with the hope of STEMmaxxing since computers are a hobby of mine, but I don't think it's worth my time going back to college and having to learn coding and stuff, even if it's by myself.

Now I'm thinking about getting a job so I can finally get out of the house, start saving up, improve my self-esteem, and actually live for something and get out of the hole I'm stubborn to get out from. I don't want to leech off my parents anymore and remain being a bum, nor do I want to get NEETbux because it's better to work for your money than getting handouts for nothing, and it wouldn't improve my current situation.

All I do all day is going on forums and imageboards, watching YouTube videos and reading Wikipedia. I'm really not doing anything productive or worthwhile so I have all the time to do something else.

So I'm thinking of getting a job that won't involve having to talk to people that much and where there are no foids. I'm considering applying for a blue collar job (construction, plumbing, carpentry, blacksmithing, stonemasonry, fixing electronics, etc). The reason is because I want to do something that it's more hands on and actually learning a practical skill on how to build and fix things, since I like the idea of being able to shape and create something useful with my hands. I think it's actually empowering as a man to being physically capable and being able to have the strength to do those kinds of jobs.

Also there are very few foids in those jobs, and I like the feeling of teamwork and the comradery you get doing things together and getting along with your co-workers (since I have close friends that I like to do stuff together already like urban exploring and graffit art).

TL;DR: Do you think getting a blue collar job or a more physical "hands-on" job is a good idea? Or should I go back to studying and STEMmaxxing?

The only solution for low motivation and low degree cels like us.
I'm post-poning it but I know I'll have to find a shitty job, I really think I might rope before.

I wonder how many incels who claim autism actually are autists. Also how does social anxiety factor into not completing college. Anyway, whatever you do would be better than NEETing so go ahead.

I was diagnosed with it (specifically Asperger's) when I was 9 even though I try to be in denial about it since how I've been mistreated by my family and in school for having it. Austism isn't the same as social anxiety, since autism merely means that you're blind to other people's social cues rather than being avoidant of social situations. Though autistic people can also have social anxiety.

In my case my social anxiety started when I entered middle school and has gotten worse since then. I'm afraid of offending other people or having others make bad moral judgements about me. And I get panic attacks when I'm confronted with people I don't know with nowhere to step back. I also don't like it when people question my thoughts or emotions so I try remain stoic instead of standing up for myself.

I guess I can get training or an apprenticeship.

BTW, what type of factory were you working in?

Was it physically demanding? Also asking if you needed training beforehand. And where was this?

Apprenticeship rocks

ITcell network admin apprentice speaking, getting paid below minimum wage whilst performing 80% of the work of regular admins for 2-3 years is kinda wack but i get to put all of my money into stuff that makes me feel better. It's a win in my book

I have similar problems, especially panic attacks when confronting people. There are two ways I can see this affect your college work. You are not able to properly communicate with professors when you need them. You are not able to make meaningful networks that help careermax later in life. (I had both issues). Plus computer science is a field where you gotta communicate a lot, especially with foids. Its an SJW infested field what with all that gay ass affirmative action. But if you wanna make good moonies you gotta live through that shit.

The only way I can see to deal with social anxiety is practice. You just gotta throw yourself out there in the sea. Its not going to be comfortable but slowly you'll get the hang of it.

Yeah, but I've been dealing with that in high school as well. And I've also grown to trust other people less and become more cynical of them.

I'm just hoping with a blue collar job, I'm going to be more comfortable around people in that setting.

working at a factory doing repetitive work is still a blue collar job but what you mentioned as examples classify specifically as trades.

Yeah, that's what I want to do.

I'm actually curious how many foids are in trade and vocational schools.

We gotta learn the art of emotionally confiding to and making connections with people meanwhile being cynically aware pf their personal agendas and goals. That's needed to survive in this world as an adult.

Blue collar jobs are hard physical work. They can fuck you up later in life. The pay could be low sometimes. You need to take care of yourself in that man.

almost none honestly. most women are too retarded to consider options other than college or house wife, and even if they did know about trades they wouldn't want to do honest work.

Gubbermint jobs are the way to go. People here without college make almost 100k (including benefits) by not doing much while working in prisons. They have union representation, golden parachute pensions and overtime/holiday bonuses. They even pay moving expenses and insurances so your covered if things don’t go well.

That blue collar stuff is hard...eventually you can find yourself doing the work of 2-3 ppl.:feelsohgod:

Oldcel that's STEMmaxxed but still does blue collar work. I've been in warehouses/retail for years now. I honestly like backroom work and things like stocking freight; the work keeps me active. I've found a fairly chill place and my second pay raise kicks in during the holidays. I'm able to pay rent + budget for copes + savings. Yes, it can wear down your body if you're not careful - I only work part time hours. I only plan to do whitecollar jobs whenever I feel I cannot go with this anymore, as such jobs tend to lead to sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy habits. This is why I retort whitecollarmaxxing also breaks your body, just in different respects.

Bluecollarmaxxing can be good, but you have to find a sweet spot where the employer doesn't abuse you and its possible to moderate your output to comfortable levels while still making acceptable wages.
