I have a love / hate relationship with meeting people. Sometimes I dread it, sometimes I can’t wait, sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. I prefer social situations to work. I like mingling with people informally and having a casual chat. I hate having formal meetings; I feel like I’m being interviewed or conducting an interview, and that doesn’t seem very friendly. I don’t sound very hard-nosed, but remember the Aesop’s fable about the wind and the sun, and who managed to get the man to take his cloak off?
