    I too can fall asleep in loud places. My friends don’t get how comforting it can be to close your eyes in a superloud club with the beat pounding. In any Meyers-Briggs test I’ve ever taken I’m 50-50 Introvert/Extrovert and it’s true. I love to perform and to be the centre of attention, but I also need to be alone and quiet. As I get older, however, I notice that I’m becoming more introverted.

      And it’s not a commentary on the music either. It just is :). I was sure I would get more and more set in my ways as I got older…one of the reasons I wanted to have my kids when I was younger…but it hasn’t really happened. I’m still pretty much as set as I ever was, not more or less.
