    Default Are there any NTs that enjoy the performing arts?

    Hi everyone. I was wondering if there are any other NTs who enjoy performing. I'm an INTJ, and I actually like acting and playing music. Of course, at first impression, you probably wouldn't even know.

    I used to like gigging with a rock band in my teens and early twenties, and I've done one or two solo gigs since then. It wasn't really the performing part I liked in the band, it was just the energy and stuff of the music when I got to play with other musicians like that. The solo gig... it was easy money, but I had to forget the audience was there to start with, made me too nervous, but after a while I warmed up and started interacting with them.

    I will never ever pick up a guitar or start playing/singing in front of people, unless I've been specifically booked to do it, or unless I can be sure nobody's really noticing. the minute people start requesting things, if I'm just playing to myself informally, or the minute I notice that anyone's watching or listening, I clam up.

    This is all basically because I think I suck, regardless of what anyone else says.

    Hey hey!

    Well I AM in a band, and we play, and I do enjoy playing a guitar solo in front of 800 people, the volume of the sound, and the whole performing experience.

    The composing part is also fantastic for me, with all the combinations and the inner logic of the music matched with what you want it to sound like.

    And we get paid for it, but the truth is that's the less important thing.


    I have to admit although that just like substitute, if I notice someone is watching me play or someone asks me to play for them I get quite anxious and feel uncomfortable. It's different if you have an audience that behaves like an audience or if you have to play for someone.
    For Sure!

    Loved it. Then again, look at my type.

    Well, I'm in my high school marching band and jazz band. Most relevant, in jazz band I routinely have to do improv solos. It's not too bad really. I get a bit nervous, but I just play anyway. Plus, even when I think my solo was really crap, there's someone out there who enjoyed it...

    My first love is theatre. Acting, directing, designing, etc... pretty much the whole thing. I minored in Theatre, and I used to do acting and directing locally when I had more spare time.

    I suck at acting, just because I feel awkward doing it. I can't even do pen&paper RPGs because of that. I tried once and it was a mess.
    So I guess I am not the type for "open entertainment". I am just too introvert.
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O
