Inside/Outside

I saw this picture of the great think Kurt Gödel and you can see how uncomfortable he is being photographed.  He lived in the world of reflection and introspection.  Compare this photograph with former President Bill Clinton or any popular politician and you see even in this picture where he is annoyed, the world of connection and projection.  Everybody wants to be on the extrovert’s team even if they won’t admit it.  Few seek the company of the introvert and yet both are equal in their contributions.
