I wonder if my personality causes my loneliness

I have been trying a few personality tests online, to find out some clues whether my loneliness is to do with my personality. I know my weakness is on the people's side of things, and probably that is why I feel trapped sometimes as I don't have anyone to talk to. Not surprise that both tests I've done are all comes back with people related issues.  Here are the results:

You are fairly people-oriented, although you have the potential to improve your interpersonal skills even more. In order to be successful in the entrepreneurial field, you will need to create relationships with helpful business contacts, clients, suppliers, and employees. This requires strong interpersonal skills, and a certain degree of comfort initiating conversations and networking, all of which generally seem to be strengths of yours. You may want to consider taking classes to further brush up on your people skills and assertiveness skills, but overall, you are doing quite well in this area

You are motivated in your business by people. This makes you a great service provider and also a great leader and colleague. You might spend a lot of time with clients or designing new products and services until you get it ‘just right’. You have the respect of your clients and also of your co-workers or colleagues and it’s likely that you spend time coaching and mentoring your staff or other professionals in your field. However being so oriented around the service delivery means that you are not always as focused as you might be on pricing and profits in your business.


Is my dream trying to tell me something?

I dream almost every night. I usually could remember them the first 30mins after waking up, except those making very strong impression.  This is one I had recently.....

I was an acrobat practicing a performance of jumping off a high building. I need to climb on a very tall bamboo stick to reach to the top of the building then jump. Closer to the time of performance, I started to feel a strong sense of fear, it was so strong that I woke up from the dream. According to dreammoods.com:

Acrobat - To see or do acrobats in your dream suggest that you need to better balance aspects of your life. It could also mean that fears will prevent you from achieving your goals.

Climbing up- To dream that you are climbing up something (ladder, rope, etc.) signifies that you are trying to or you have overcome a great struggle. It also suggests that your goals are finally within reach. Climbing also means that you have risen to a level of prominence within the social or economic sphere. 

Fear- To dream that you feel fear indicates that your achievements will not be as successful as you had anticipated. You are experiencing anxieties in various aspects of your life. The key to overcoming your fear is to discuss them and deal with them openly.

So seems that all thse signs in my dream are enforcing the same idea. We can't underestimate how sensitive our subconscious mind is!!
