      I would probably class myself as an extrovert. I love meeting new people and experiencing new things and this has definitely helped me to have the confidence to just start conversations with people and learn from them all the time!

      I’m definitely an extrovert. It’s really helped in my career so far as I’m able to confidently present my work and meet new people. It also means I try to find time to do outreach events and give talks to the public which is just fun 🙂

      I’d classify myself as an extrovert too. I like talking to people, preferably over a pint 🙂 It helped me to be confident when talking to my co-workers and supervisors, which is always more effective than talking to them while feeling insecure.
