I know exactly what you mean.

There might be people that judge, and their judgement will be wrong.

I had noticed in the past how some of the scientists I admired the most, had artistic hobbies. But a book I read recently put this in perspective. This is an extract from Originals by Adam Grant:

“In a recent study comparing every Nobel Prize-winning scientist from 1901 to 2005 with typical scientists of the same era, both groups attained deep expertise in their respective fields of study. But the Nobel Prize winners were dramatically more likely to be involved in the arts than less accomplished scientists.”

Our artistic inclinations not only nurture our souls, but they also have the capability of giving us creative insight in our other, more analytical, endeavors.
