Last night we watched a female entertainer who exhibited a form of that effect. The response was immediate. Instead of drawing attention to her
obviously gifted talent, she drove people away who listened to her and went "Ehhh!"
We all realized she was expecting all to recognize how good she was performing when the effect was the opposite. She was great...hugely
talented....but by the 3rd song, we all were un-interested, bored and looking at our watches.
If she wouldve self-censored herself and the image she thought we all should already have had of her...she would have won over a large amount of new
fans. She did not...and I wouldnt go see her again.
She lost a huge amount of potential new fans. And that happened because she expected everyone to fall over her. Self-censoring or editing her
performance to GET new fans should have been easy for her.
Instead...she didnt and had the obvious and egotistical attitude everyone SHOULD already be fans and falling all over her. We dont see that often in
music performances, especially from "unknowns" and new groups or singers.
A form of perceived "self-entitlement"...and she was clueless she was having that effect on listeners in her audience.
