FRANZ LISZT the famous composer
He was known for his flamboyance, the first pianist to go "solo" for an entire concert to audience, In his lifetime, he achieved fame similar to what a rock star enjoys today. However, he eventually happily retired to the country where he lived as a monk.
WAS HE AN INTROVERT?
It's highly likely; many artists are.
Here are two of his quotes:
"Art is Heaven on earth, to which one never appeals in vain when faced with the oppressions of this world."
"I calmly persist in staying stubbornly in my corner, and just work at becoming more and more misunderstood."
If you're an introvert, it can feel like swimming upstream. Indeed introverts are in the minority, and so it's a fight to establish the ways of the Introvert as legitimate lifestyles.
For instance, when the extrovert gets upset about something, he or she "acts out", i.e., goes out drinking or carousing, bangs on the desk, picks a fight, dumps his romantic partner, or gets a speeding ticket. The introvert is more likely to curl up on the couch under a blanket ... and is therefore labeled "depressed."
Does this make sense?
No. It's just a different coping style.
