I am an introvert. I need time alone to "de-nerve" (calm nerves), think, organize, re-channel and recharge. This has to be for me to function in the world. Once in the world, I like to do great things in an invisible way. For me to hold "my charge" (and effectiveness) for longer periods, I have to do the work God has for me "unseen".
The second people start laying praise/acknowledging an effort made, I feel "bogged down" and want to tuck myself away again.
Joy comes from the Lord;)! His instruction and praise best perceived when I vacate myself. (Too much attention . . . not good for people.) Overinflating . . . Under inflating an ego is not of Christ. Somewhere in between, I believe God wants us.
