The Body Language Of A Genius

Watch Glenn Gould’s body language when he’s playing piano:

  • he throws his hands up in the air
  • he sways his head to-and-fro
  • he looks like he’s muttering to himself
  • he looks weird

And he’s brilliant!

I’m sure some people think he’s overly dramatic, even cartoonish, but Gould is smart enough – and self-aware enough – to know what makes him tick. And that’s all that matters! Keep this is mind when you get advice and criticism from others. Know yourself. Know your flow – what puts and keeps you in the zone.
