Signs of a creative person.

17 Jul

I read this and connected instantly,‘The Democratisation of Creativity‘ by Jonathan Pease.

Pease explores what makes ‘a creative type’. I love this finding on seven signs of a creative person;

Professor Øyvind Martinsen from Norway posed 200 questions to 481 students to identify the top seven signs of a creative person, and I think the results may surprise you:

  1. Your mind has an associative orientation – which basically means that you daydream a lot.   
  2. You hunger for originality.
  3. You’re highly motivated.
  4. You’re ambitious.
  5. You’re flexible.
  6. You’re emotionally volatile.
  7. You’re a pain in the butt.

Do you relate?

I read this article in Renegade Collective, a relatively new magazine with some amazing content and inspiring stories to share. Check it out if you have time. Actually, make time.
