    You don't have to be a confident extrovert - just be able to portray yourself as one. I've been doing that for years, so if such a scheme were more widely in place, it would give me an advantage. Hence, I'm in favour. But purely for selfish reasons.

    Hmm... business opportunity. Acting lessons for introverts.

    Let's balance the scales.

    I'd agree to it only on the condition that the clients provide me with video profiles of their relevant representatives in order for me to determine whether they'd be worthy of me.

    Sadly it wouldn't work for me. I have a traditional British name and enjoy walking into interviews to raised eyebrows when they don't see what they expect. Your idea would take away all my fun.
