A little while ago, Barry Comer asked if he could sketch me. How nice! I suggested my most recent self portrait and here is the resulting sketch. I really like it.

I’m still feeling quiet and somewhat withdrawn.

“Studies have shown that, indeed, introverts are more likely than extroverts (sic) to express intimate facts about themselves online that their family and friends would be surprised to read, to say that they can express the ‘real me’ online, and to spend more time in certain kinds of online discussions. They welcome the chance to communicate digitally.” Susan Cain, Quiet

So, I’m wondering: how many of you consider yourselves more introverted than extraverted, and what you think about that quote?
