I developed into an introverted extrovert.

I encountered the power of the group (any group, in this case the other children) at the age of three.  It left a scar.  I accepted my outsidership and became a firebrand and a popular troublemaker.


Later in life the confrontation with the group was a running theme.  In this eternal battle, I was stubbornly defensive.  Outspokenness is very much part of my nature but life teached me not to be it all the time.  It's too energy consuming.  When I'm extrovert, I scare people.

As a consequence I became kind of eccentric and a loner, be it one with a couple of very, very good friends.
