As a classroom teacher, I expect to be the center of attention.
As a watercolor artist, I want to be completely invisible so my art speaks for itself.
As a musician, I'd rather be an unseen - yet indispensable - "girl Friday" of sorts.
I don't really want to be the center of every group's attention. Not my cup o' tea. Being the center of attention means people are focused on you... and I don't enjoy that much scrutiny. Too many warts.
