Understand that having an anti social behavior is not the same as having the disease anti-social behavior disorder. Some truckers may find themselves becoming a bit anti social if they start driving as a single person. Especially if they occupy their free time when not driving with activities that doesn't require the interaction of others. For instance, sometimes I sit at the computer for hours working on this site. Well that takes away from being social (you know I mean here and now). Other times I may be in the middle of a radio program about something interesting, then something interesting comes on after that.
So even the things that I recommend such as motivational materials and other productive and otherwise positive activities can be done to the extreme that they become a contributor to leaving you anti social. The key is balance and moderation.
Supposed all you do is drop and hook and your spare time is spent in your bunk watching your tv or reading a book. You spend most of your life cut off from human interaction. You may become self centered and out of touch with the concern of other people when you do get involved with someone else on a more serious level.
However, most people that end up taking on those characteristics are not aware of becoming that way. And people can get that way without driving a truck. Just staying in touch with good friends and family will keep you from becoming withdrawn and having an anti social behavior.
Following some of the other advise on this website like thinking positively and continued self improvement will keep your from exhibiting an anti-social behavior if you also keep at the core of your heart that people are more important than anything else you deal with.(After God of course) They give your life color, so be careful not to live your life without them.
