This article took me back to my days in a political party. The introverts seemed to gravitate to lawn-sign crew. The extroverts did the canvassing.

I was an introvert pretending to be an extrovert. I did a lot of canvassing. It was psychologically hard on me. I remember the fear I felt every door I knocked on. I never did get comfortable with this task.

But the party seemed to value canvassing a lot more than lawn signs.

I was in politics for six years. Initially I wanted to be an elected politician in the future. But after I saw the lifestyle politicians had, I decided the backrooms was enough. I didn't know much about extrovert/introvert at that time. But my decision was made by my introverted nature.

My six years had me thinking about a better for democracy: one where introverts would play a "fair" role.
