Have you ever asked yourself if you are creative?
People are attracted to creative types, whether that person is an artist, a designer, an author, we are curious about how his or her mind works. I work in a place where innovation is promoted, and I am lucky to be surrounded by creative people. Embrace it and celebrate who you are because you are unique and especial!
I believe and feel that in whatever area we are in, we can be innovative. Chefs are creative masters in the kitchen, Writers are creative masters in writing and expression, Artist are creative masters in the drawing and illustrations too. I believe that whatever makes you happy and you are passionate about there is a possibility that is your "creativity" and you should keep going "consistency" until you become master in that field.
There are certain characteristics that I believe every creative person has. Find out and see if you've got any of them!
1. Those who are creative like challenges
The tougher the challenge, the more fascinated they become. They're not trying to escape problems rather they deal with them as challenges. Also, the most creative people I know are great problem solvers. They don't run away from challenges, they believe everything is possible and achievable.
2. There's no fear of experimenting with creative people.
They are not afraid trying something new whether it's an operation, gadget or method, "Risk Takers". Experimenting is a way for them to see what is working and what is not working, they won't wait for their acts to be determined by men, they'd rather lead.
Creative types are often introverted and tend to be loners, creative individuals don't dislike people, they usually spend more time alone because they can focus on thinking and imagination.
Professor Sidney Hoods said, " my observation lead me to the conclusion that human beings have suffered greater deprivation from fear of life than from its abundance.
3. Creative types are fascinating and curious people.
Most times they're asking questions. They make the extra effort to learn everything they can about how it works and how it can help them and others. They just extraordinary and eager to know and learn, As a result, each day they get better in their passion or field.
4. Creative people are able to embrace and criticise constructively
Others will always have something to say about it, regardless of what we do, whether it's good or bad. For creative people they accept criticism and turn it into opportunities and even know how to criticise constructively. Creative people always expect themselves and others to succeed in whatever they do because they have high standards for themselves and others,
5. The Creative types have high expectation and standards
They don't settling down for less than their best. They will always find ways to improve something or themselves. They never cease to learn. They don't give up, and they keep pushing and celebrating their success is just the beginning for them for this reason "can't do" is not in their minds.
