Hmm, I am pretty sure I like to avoid. At times in a softball league I was in I would often hope that I was not the batter who would come to the plate with a chance to win the game, either hoping we would win before or lose before it came to me. I did not want to be the final batter.
I will say, as I have aged I have found that I am starting to like the spotlight a bit more. Still not as much as others, but more then when I was a kid.
