Unusually talented, you possess inherent abilities for which even you can’t account. Often dazzlingly charming, you light up a room with your presence, and all in attendance know where you are. Your broad smile and bright eyes make others feel warm and welcome.You always play to the audience. With dramatic effect, you tell your stories, pausing at the right places, occasionally gesturing for emphasis. You need to see a response. Some form of acknowledgment such as a pat on the back is as important to you as the air you breathe. You need to be noticed.
