I was just sitting and wondering. There are things we love to do but find boring to watch others doing (like eating something tasty). And there are things that most of us would prefer to watch instead of doing it themselves (like boxing). May this apply to bass playing too? People start learning their instrument being inspired by some sort of music. Therefore they tend to play what they like to listen. But may it happen that while getting advanced and learning more about techniques and styles they would figure out that their favorite music is no fun to play and that the most fun for them is to play something that they would never let in their playlist? What is your situation?
