Question of the Day

What trait that you don't possess do you admire in others?

I admire anyone who can walk confidently into a room full of people. Well, confidently isn't the right word, exactly, because I'm not lacking confidence; I just have general social anxiety.

The thing is, if I'm one of the first people to arrive to a party, say, I'm fine as people slowly pile in. It's the arriving to a crowded party already underway that gives me a case of the panics.

The one exception to this is if I'm addressing a group for some reason. I have absolutely no fear of public speaking at all. Go figure.
