Creativity is innate for some people, a complete mystery to others… but are there such things as creative people? We came across an article in the Huffington Post:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/04/creativity-habits_n_4859769.html

which picks out characteristics and qualities of creative people:

Creative people:

  • they daydream.
  • they observe everything.
  • they work the hours that work for them.
  • they take time for solitude.
  • they turn life’s obstacles around.
  • they seek out new experiences.
  • they “fail up.”
  • they ask the big questions.
  • they people-watch.
  • they take risks.
  • they view all of life as an opportunity for self-expression.
  • they follow their true passions.
  • they get out of their own heads.
  • they lose track of the time.
  • they surround themselves with beauty.
  • they connect the dots.
  • they constantly shake things up.
  • they make time for mindfulness.

This list has been expanded into the new book, “Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind,” by Carolyn Gregoire and Scott Barry Kaufman.
