Teaching. I’m really good at leading a discussion class but I have terrible stage fright so my success comes at the price of a lot of angst.

Chess. People stop playing with me after I cream them over and over.

@RedDeerGuy1 Did you see any of the Alphazero Stockfish games?

@flutherother No. I didn’t know about them until now. Will Google.

The games are on Youtube. They are computer chess programmes playing each other.

Unfortunately I’m a very good listener and conflict resolver. Everyone comes to me with their problems!

Putting up different faces for different types of people. Sometimes I’m just sick of having to behave in a way I don’t want, but it’s the only way to keep myself out of troubles.

My answer: navigating the mental health system. I’ve been dealing with depressed family members, and a friend asked me for advice on a similar issue. I was glad to help her, but couldn’t help thinking I wish I were the go-to expert on rainbows and butterflies…not depression.

Thanks, interesting answers.
