I’m an introvert.
A lot of folks are surprised to hear me say that. We’ve seen you teach, they say.
And you were a managing editor.
And you coordinated media relations for a big health-insurance company.
That’s all true. I also can work a crowd, make conversation with people I don’t know, even seize the microphone if that’s what the occasion demands.
But sometimes, despite my best efforts, my introversion takes over.
Like during a faculty meeting I attended recently.
