Hello everyone, now i’m gonna review about about “the magic of creativity” i read a website about creativity (www.creativesomething.net), generally that website tell us about what is creative, how to be a creative individual? and that website also gave an example about creativity from logical and science side.
Now i will resume about creativity with my own version, first of all what is creative? according to Robert E. Franken, creative is the tendency to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others. from my opinion, why people are motivated to be creative?? because they need for complex stimulation, need to communicate ideas and values, and need to solve provlems. Basically, human brain created for all the problem that will come to us including logical or science.
Characteristics of the creative personality according to Robert :
- Creative individuals have a great deal of energy, but they are also often quiet and at rest.
- Creative individuals tend to be smart, yet also naive at the same time.
- Creative individuals have a combination of playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.
- Creative individuals alternate between imagination and fantasy ant one end, and rooted sense of reality at the other.
- Creative people seem to harbor opposite tendencies on the continuum between extroversion and introversion.
- Creative individuals are also remarkable humble and proud at the same time.
- Creative individuals to a certain extent escape rigid gender role stereotyping and have a tendency toward androgyny.
- Generally, creative people are thought to be rebellious and independent.
- Most creative persons are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.
- The openness and sensitivity of creative individuals often exposes them to suffering pain yet also a great deal of enjoyment.
It’s not simply enough to believe that you’re creative without expecting the belief to work, without having an ideal environment for the expected outcome, or any of the other five elements Byron outlined. This is typically what many creative courses and creativity coaches promote to those who participate.
