I can't shake that I want to go to Mykonos soon, but I am nervous because I've heard mixed things about the island. What attracts me to the island is the party scene - but a lot of what goes with the party scene turns me off. I don't know if any of you have advice on how to navigate it. I want to enjoy the parties, but I want to also be able to avoid them here and there to sightsee, relax, etc. So I want a balance. If this isn't the place for that kind of balance, I am open to suggestions.
And so let's see if I can help having lived and worked in Tourism Industry in Mykonos... you wrote

What specifically turns you off?
To enjoy the party scene one has to be in a group of like minded friends!
I can assure you that both can be enjoyed without any stress whatsoever.
Why do you want go to Mykonos?....is it to be seen and see the razmatazzz? ..... You can spend all your time in Mykonos without even coming near any kind of party scene whatsoever I assure you!!!...And you can party on should you so desire....The beaches like Kalfatis, Lia Beach,Fragia,Agia Anna,Loulos, Agrari Beach,Far end of Panormos,Agois Sostis,Kapari, Agios Yianis,
are peacdf...as mentioned here all hype news will always be disappointing....I must ask you again... What are you expecting out of your trip to Mykonos?.... Remember it is extortionately expensive!...Ask me specifically and let me see if I can assist further!... Yasou apo mena from Thailand!
