People have called me all manner of things down through the years, but taciturn wasn’t ever one of them. When something activates my attention, it is hard to be quiet. In heated conversation my voice rises, when I am especially excited I become emphatic, and when I laugh… well, none of it is muted.
I feel things deeply, and care about them passionately. I also tend to proclaim them (sometimes at length) usually with excessive volume. Now, sometimes this kind of force is both necessary and desirable; when in defense of the defenseless, when trying to win debate trophies, and at other crucial moments:
