I have met a whole lot of composers.  During those encounters I have observed the following:
  • 75% come across as Aloof/Awkward/Detached/Uninteresting
  • 15% come across as Engaging/Confident/Charming/Compelling. Almost all the successful composers I know are in this category.
  • 10% come across as Needy/Pathetic/Pushy/Annoying
I have no idea what their core personal essence is, only reflecting on how I perceive they come across to me, as someone in the entertainment industry, when meeting them.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS?
