What kind of toaster are you?

I have an expensive, high-end brand toaster. It is very well designed and looks beautiful in the corner of my kitchen. It is elegant and smart. But it makes terrible toast.

There are people just like my toaster. They talk the talk even though don’t have a clue what they are doing.

If I were a toaster, I might look slightly underwhelming – a supermarket own brand device, with no bells or whistles. But I would make very good toast!

Being quite reserved, I have always been interested in those people at the other end of the spectrum - the ones with an unswerving self-belief, sometimes apparently quite out of proportion to their abilities. I wanted to be like them - their lives seemed so much easier by comparison. Now, having thought about it, I’m not so sure I do. I think they have also got it wrong, just in the equal and opposite way. And it's actually about finding some sort of balance.
