I once read that creatives have an alternate view of the world because we are used to failing. With the practice and criticism it takes to get to where we are, we are not often concerned with typical social issues. It's a selfish way of thinking really. A pedestal if you will. It is my theory that this is why we perform on stages and seem to lose our rationality when the spotlights cut off. In short, we're all kind of sociopaths.
