Traits of creative people

Posted: July 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

A lot of people cannot seem to help but think that
creativity is something that not everyone has. More
often than not, people think that this is something that
people are born with.
Those who are said to be naturally creative are able to
think out of the box and figure out ways on how they
can be different from the rest of the crowd.
What a lot of people do not seem to realize is that
being creative is also a skill that can be honed and
cultivated so that people can become better overall.
Being creative will not happen overnight. There are
certain habits that people must do in order to start
experiencing their creative streak.
Creative thinking can start as soon as
possible with the help of these 7 simple
habits :
1. They like what they do
If there is one thing that can be said about creative
people, it is the fact that they like what they are doing .
It can be hard to become creative if people are not
passionate about something. For instance, those who
paint cannot paint properly when they are not inspired
or when they do not have a vision. Trying to paint
without anything in mind will not lead to work that can
be called inspiring and different. Also, when people
work on things that they like, they tend to appreciate
each step that they take and they do not find it too
tiring.
2. They figure out skills
that can cultivate their
talents
This means that people who are highly creative are
able to figure out what things can be connected to their
current passion . For instance, a swimmer can also take
up rowing because it allows them to still be near the
water but in a different way. People who love cooking
may also want to take up management because it can
go hand in hand in the future. This means that people
who already have their natural skills are more than
willing to cultivate more skills in order to become
extremely good at what they aim to be.
3. They adapt to change
quickly
One of the downfalls of people who are creative but
are not effective is they are reluctant to go with the
changing times. They are reluctant to go with change
simply because they are not used to it. When people
are creative and effective this is being able to adapt to
the changes that are hurled by life quickly. They can
also be flexible depending on what other people expect
from them without forgetting the fact that they need to
showcase their creativity and their uniqueness.
4. They dream
Some people are judged when they daydream because
most people think that this is something that people
who have nothing better to do, do. Actually,
daydreaming can help people think of the next big ideas
that they are going to do depending on what their
current craft is. When people daydream, they should
not think about this as something that is negative
because it is not. Rather, it should be something
positive as long as it does not interfere with work.
5. They are not afraid to
collaborate
It seems that one of the problems of creative people is
their tendency to shut off others when they are
working. It is okay to do projects alone if the project
calls for it but there are times when creative minds
need to think together because two is better than one
when it comes to certain tasks. When creative and
effective people are not scared to collaborate, they
tend to be more open minded about the things that are
handed down to them. As a result, they are able to
maintain their creativity and at the same time, create a
good, working relationship with the people that they work
with .
6. They feed their minds
Creative people cannot just use and reuse old ideas
over and over again. They have to make sure that they
will feed their minds with new things . They can do this
with the help of various things and ideas. This can be
done by being exposed to stories, to new experiences,
to new people and sometimes even things that are
being taken for granted. When people feed their minds,
they are able to come up with new ideas easily.
7. They follow their
intuition (Most of the
time)
There are a lot of times when creative people are
expected to do everything simply because they are
creative but if they think that they will not get anything
out of it or they will not be effective in doing it, they
are also not allowed to say no. They basically follow
their intuition regarding the tasks that they are going to
do. If they feel that they can do a task well then they
make sure that they do it well. If they know they
cannot, they tell people about it too. Of course people
are also expected to take risks at times but most of
the time, following their intuition may be the best thing
to do.
With all of these things in mind, picking up a tip or two
on how to make sure that people will stay creative is
something that should be done. People’s creative
juices will flow and will create wonderful things in the
future.
