You Are 89% Thankful
You’re an incredibly thankful person, and everyone around you feels very appreciated.

Oh, I got a brief but spontaneous outburst of applause (from about three people) this morning. Welcoming the audience to the first lecture of this year, I hoped that they were well and, if they’d had any of the illnesses going round over the past few weeks, they had made a quick recovery. “I’ve been lucky and not been ill at all,” I added. “I put great faith in the antiseptic effect of good red wine.” So, it seems, do some of the gentlemen in the audience.
