Ever wondered what makes a person creative? While there are no “typical” creative personalities, here are some telling traits and habits of extremely creative people.
- They Daydream
Creative people understand that, regardless of what their teachers may have said, daydreaming is anything but a waste of time. Neuroscientists have found that daydreaming uses the same brain processes that are connected to creativity and imagination.
- They Are Very Observant
Creative people see possibilities everywhere and they are always absorbing information which in turn feeds creative expression. Often, they will carry a notebook and write down their observations about people and events around them.
- They Work When They Want
Many great artists have done their best work either in the early hours of the morning or late at night. Frank Lloyd Wright would wake up at 3 or 4am and work for a few hours before going back to bed. Creative people will usually know when their minds are at the optimum point of creativity and will organize their work schedule accordingly.
- They Make Time For Solitude
Creative people are often stereotyped as being loners which may or may not be true. However, solitude can sometimes be the key to them producing their best work. Quite time, alone with oneself allows one to hear that inner creative voice and fuels the ability to express it.
- They See the Cup As Half Full
Many great works of art, music and literature have been inspired by pain and heartache. Sad as circumstances might be, they may have sparked great creativity. Hardships and trauma in a person’s life can act as the catalyst for substantial creative growth, by providing the ability to see things in a fresh new light.
These are just a few of the things that creative people do.
