Socially I'm an introvert but musically I'm an extrovert. I can see the value in both.
An extrovert getting out in the world can channel their experiences into song.
An introvert may feel more creative being isolated from the world. Someone who reads a lot can channel those literary experiences into song. When working on a song in the studio I prefer to be alone, but there are times when an ensemble with other musicians in the same room is the only way to get the vibe I am after.
I am an extrovert convert. I absorb different topics and match it musically. Creative output to me is like a river.
In 1/1 discussion with acquaintances, about my personal process, some think it's weird.
I am used to reactions.
I can think of a discussion where someone claimed that's all bull sh*&. I attribute that to 'everyone has an opinion '.
While creativity has much variation, actual [ serious/consistent/long term] creators are a small % of the population.
Anyway, when working on a new song, I don't like distractions- unless I ask for it.
I get zoned in on finishing. That requires some isolation IMO. But its
I like opinions/feedback. I have a 'jury ' of 4 that
I trust , have preferences, but are open minded. If they do not like
a song draft [ 80-90% complete] I will archive that song 'experiment '.
