Perhaps we do it through our music (either performing, creating, or playing on the stereo). Does the quiet banker enjoy Heavy Metal or Punk Rock on the side? Does the biker head into his garage when he can’t take it anymore and play Bach? Does the lead singer of the Death Metal band occasionally like to mellow out with gospel music blasting from his headphones? I couldn’t say but that would be examples of different sides manifesting.
