"I like Odyssey of the Mind because it really brings out the creativity in people. It's a sense of family, and cooperation. You can't just get angry and storm out of the room, you have to work through your problems. I'm not allowed to talk about our problem. It's an actual rule with OM, we aren't allowed...

"I like everything about music," said Sodones. "It's pretty much everything you want to say. Except you don't have to say it, you can more of express it through something else.

"This interview [makes me laugh]," said Gagnon. "I think I found it funny because I'm nervous. [When I'm nervous] I laugh a lot. I kind of wish I didn't do it so I could answer questions and talk normally. Sometimes I can be socially awkward. So being put on the spot, I'm not good with that. But if I...

And while I don't think you should be that stereotype if it's not who you are, if that is who you are, don't change yourself. If you fit a stereotype or aspects of a stereotype, you shouldn't be...
