  1. In my view Richard is an introvert and some of the things he says has been misinterpreted. I am an introvert myself and am sometimes misunderstood. People need to remember it is not easy been quiet and lacking in confidence but this hasn’t prevented me becoming a success.


    1. I agree, Jill. I am an introvert myself and there are many common misconceptions about us. people seem to think that introverts are painfully shy and awkward, while extroverts are upbeat and talkative; there is a lot of room in between those two extremes.
