A Few Things Creative People Do


I have been thinking, what are the distinguishing qualities of a creative person? Why do we call one person “creative” and another… just a “skilled” or “hard-working” guy? I have come up with these answers. These are the things that creative people always do:

  1. They concentrate on and “listen” to their inner self;
  2. They are not afraid to make up their mind and change their decisions;
  3. They tend to connect ideas, which other people find incompatible;
  4. Creative people tend to surround themselves with beauty, they have a physical need to see, hear, smell and sense beautiful things every day;
  5. They hate borders, especially mental borders that keep them within the frames of “well-set” approaches;
  6. Creative people often fail to follow time limitations. In fact, it is not them, but the time itself that fails to develop the same pace as the creative person’s mind does;
  7. Quite often, creative people become victims of their own desires, but this does not discourage them;
  8. They often take problems and failures as opportunities to start something new;
  9. They look at every event taking place around them as a way of self-expression;
  10. Creative people observe the world and the people around themselves, and find inspiration in them;
  11. Failure only makes them more curious;
  12. Creative people question everything that they see or hear around;
  13. Creative people seek for new impressions and emotional activity as thurstily as they look for beauty;
  14. they work only in the hours which are convenient to their personal “mental rhythms”; and
  15. They dream.
