Today I learned a new word: Fauxhemian. Cute.
I don't know if I've shared, in this "public" forum, a word I created: Fakestrovert (pronounced fake-struh-vuhrt). This is someone who's an introvert but through skill, persistence, and very hard work is able to be a temporary extrovert. The fakestrovert can be "on" for, say, an evening of entertaining, but when the crowd leaves collapses onto the couch exhausted and drained.
I shared this idea with some people, several of whom said, "Oh, that's me!" And so here's a very strict rule: this term may only be applied through self-identification. Only you know you. If you think you know someone else, you're probably wrong. And annoying.
