Confession time:
I have many, many, many introverted tendencies.

Does this surprise you? Does it feel strange to be taking public speaking tips from someone who prefers one-on-one coffee chats to huge parties? Or likes to recharge with a journal on a sun dappled patio rather than in a big yoga class?
