I’m a playlike ambivert

July 13, 2013

I’m an introvert at a writer’s conference in LA (lower Alabama). The Alabama Writers Conclave conference, to be exact. So I thought that in order to network more successfully today and tomorrow, I should pretend I am an extrovert. But then I immediately took that thought back mentally — if that’s possible — because it’s just way too scary. And I thought that maybe, just maybe, I could move toward extroversion on the introvert-extrovert scale.

So I Googled, “What is the word for being halfway between an introvert and an extrovert?”Google said the word is “ambivert.” So that’s what I’m going to be today and tomorrow — an ambivert. Or at least a “playlike” ambivert, as we say in the South. It’s a step in the right direction, anyway.

I like that word: ambivert. It sounds as if I don’t give a damn either way.
