The Arts

Thus far I've done an interview with an introverted missionary, an introverted church-planter, an introverted Pentecostal pastor, and an introverted youth minister, but I still feel that someone is missing. An introvert in the arts. Therefore, I'm working on questions for an interview with introverted musician Natalie Nicole Gilbert that I will be posting in the next couple of weeks.

But for now I want to pose a couple of questions. Why do you think that introverts are so attracted to the arts? Pastors and leaders seem to tend towards the extroverted side of the spectrum, but musicians, actors, artists, and writers seem to go the other way. Is it simply because people in the arts tend to work in solitude, or is it more complicated than that?  What are your theories?
