Well, the title about says it.
Don't know how the candidates can bear it. The vast majority of them must be extroverts, the 60-odd per cent of the population that is energized by being in a room full of people.
Unfortunately, the opposite is true for introverts, of which I am one. Other folks exhaust us, not because we don't like people (most of us do), but because we invest so much of OUR energy into any exchange with another person - the Other becomes our sole focus of attention.
Even engaging with people online doesn't seem to help, although I thought that imposing a faceless barrier would.
How candidates can get hyped about the issues no matter how many times they have to repeat the same old thing also boggles this tired brain.
I canna do it day in, day out, without a break in between. And frankly, I get BORED with having to say and think the same thing over and over and over... Although I recognize the necessity of that if we're going to get our message out to as many people as possible.
So, what do you think? Are you just as frazzled as I am? Or are you just getting started?
