A boy/girl who is to afraid
to talk to the opposite
out of school activities. The thread
group is a confidence booster
for those who don't talk to the opposite
sex and provides a sense of camaraderie/fraternity among other threads. A term associated with threads is thread shock
. Thread shock
is defined as the condition in which a person is too stunned
to talk to the opposite gender
that he/she doesn't reply. The hierarchy of threads is as follows from top to bottom: Thread
Legacy (in the case

member), and Thread
Star. The secret handshake of the Thread
is fist-pounding yourself or high-fiving
yourself after someone else
high-fives or fist-pounds you, which serves as a symbol for the elevated sense of confidence one receives when among other threads.
