CREATIVITY – One Word Wednesday
Being creative or artistic doesn’t necessarily mean you know how to draw or play an instrument.
Creativity is a way of thinking, a way of viewing the world.
Dan Draper of the AMC television series Mad Men portrays a creative.
Writers exist in a world of creativity.
David B. Goldstein, co-author of “Creative You: Using Your Personality Type to Thrive,” maintains every person is creative.
“Contrary to popular belief, no one is born without a creative bone in his or her body, and not all creative types are starving artists. In other words, we’ve all got it, but our personalities play a role in the kind of creative we are, and how we best feed into it.”
Creativity is a function of how your brain works. Creative types use the RIGHT side of their brains more than the LEFT.

“The mental and personality traits that make it possible to be creative can also be annoying and irritating to the rest of society. Aside from the crime of introversion, creative people are often non-conforming, haughty, brilliant, intense, restless, prickly, with a sense of destiny (see the whole list here).”
If your test results show you do operate in the creative right brain…
Now go be courageous and CREATE.
