This is very interesting.
I was an incredibly confident, precocious, clever, entertaining and funny child myself... Up until I started school.
It scared me in a way I'd never been scared before, and I completely recoiled and turned into myself. My trust for people was destroyed- I always thought I was going to be beaten up or teased. I suddenly became the introverted one who clung to my teachers skirts at lunchtimes.
I can't remember the dynamic of this- what happened and why. There's a part of me that's suspicious that perhaps some sort of abuse had occured just previous, or at the start of school. But the shift was incredible.
