I freeze up when a bunch of people are staring at me. This was unfortunate when I was a mechanic and every guy in the garage made it their business to collect around my bay and stare at what I was doing when I had to do something really hard and they wanted to see if I would fail or come through. I can't handle having an audience like that. I feel like I'm surrounded by hyenas.
Hmm. If that's your curse, I wonder what the heck is wrong with *me*. My ENFP sister spent her life dragging me places and trying to get me to try new things. Without her (and my ESFP and ENTJ best friends), I would still be a wallflower, I think.I hate large gatherings of people, even people I know.
The curse of being an overly self conscious introvert... =(
