As an introvert itinerant pastor/worship leader your post was spot on for me; including the part about learning about myself as I enter middle age. I find many performers are introverts, as well. As I speak with them about this apparent dichotomy I find that "introvert-performers" makes perfect sense. Speaking to or leading worship for 100+ people leaves us in control of how vulnerable we are. There's a rather small chance that someone in the room will do or say something that surprises us or catches us off-guard. As the group gets smaller the interaction increases. This is why we introverts like to listen. It allows us "community" but we can measure the doses of ourselves that we let out.
