#052: Introverted Musicians: is there something wrong with me?

In this episode of DAWCast: Music Entrepreneurship, I take a look at what it’s like to be an introverted musician.

I have heard several artists talk about the highs and lows they often go through. They tend to experience emotions more intensely and more powerfully than others around them. They over-think things and torment themselves over seemingly “small” things.

These are characteristics common to introverts, who need to better understand how they are wired so that they can still be effective in their day-to-day lives.

I am a subset of introverts who are even more sensitive, and know all too well the many challenges that accompany being an introvert.

In this episode, I take a look at common misconceptions about introverts, how to be more effective as an introvert, and how to manage perfectionism.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • What a sensitive/intuitive is.
  • Why most musicians are introverts.
  • Where introverts and extroverts get their energy from.
  • Why introverts tend not to be social all the time.
  • Why introverts tend to expend more energy around people.
  • Why introverts require longer periods alone to recharge.
  • Why taking risks might be harder for an introvert.
  • Why introversion is not an excuse for escaping the responsibilities of life.
  • Why introverts tend to experience more highs and lows.
  • Why your greatest weaknesses will one day become your greatest strengths.
