Vocal

I've never been a vocal person. I am quiet.

Most people don't seem to trust quiet people - or think they have something to hide.

When I was out with my ex's family, they would always make some kind of comment about how quiet I was. It irritated me; they were never quiet. There was too much talking and too little listening in that house. I was always the listener.

Listening is valuable and something we should all learn to do better. It'll make us look less ignorant.

Quiet people aren't all that bad after all. We're just not as vocal.
