Ten Creativity Paradox

December 16, 2009

One “Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.”This is quite true. Mostly creative people always thinks positively, outside the box, and cheerful at the same time. That is what distinguishes the one who is creative and who isn’t. Creative person shines a powerful energy from their selves. They also have a strong physical energy because they always think how to deal with everything in life in a different perspective and make it as creative as they can. But, we do always have to remember that the key to being creative is know when to start and when to stop at the right time, this gives your brain a pattern on when to start working and when to rest. If we imagine a student that force himself to study hard the night before the test up until late and at the end he gets tired at the big day and lost his stamina during the test.  But what if he study constantly and know when to stop studying in order to gain his brain and stamina? His braiun will be able to know what its like to be under pressure and when to relax and gain the strength it needs to be under the pressure. So yes, timing is important and crucial.

Two “Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.”One way of expressing this dialectic is the opposite poles of wisdom and childishness. Think Mozart, is that ignorance and naive that often comes with creativity. Intuitively creative people know that they have a purpose, a destiny or they realize that they can choose or create one to drive them to reach greater heights of skill, ability, or talent. And they can be a little naive sometimes. They need smart people that they trust and are close to them for constant reminder.

Three Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.”There is no question that a playfully light attitude is typical of creative individuals. But this playfulness doesn’t go very far without its antithesis, a quality of doggedness, endurance, perseverance. Creative people knows when to put a playful and irresposibility side to something scientific and serious. For example: Steve Job purposes to make a high-technology and fun features seriously. And VOILA! He made iPhone, iPod, etc.

Four “Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.” Creative people always have a great imagination, which sometimes we as ordinary people do not ever think that the existence of such an idea. They have a wild imagination or out of the box. But they don’t make all of them into realization. Only the dream that has possibility in reality is the one that they will make it. The difference between creative people and losers are that creative people know how to implement dreams into reality, how to sleep, dreams, wakes up and work while losers prefer to sleep and keeps on dreaming.  This paradox shows that it’s perfectly normal to dream big.

Five “Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.”Creative people are introverted person when they are in a process of thinking of ideas, decide where this goes toward the idea. Then they will be extroverted people when they are ready to share their brilliant ideas.

Six “Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.”When they feel that they give an idea accepted and applied properly. They received many compliments from people around here is they feel humble and proud at the same time.

Seven “Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.”Creative people will not feel awkward with gender differences, role, or stereotyping. As long as it does not interfere with the creativity of their ideas, and does not interfere with their emotions, they will not feel stiff.

Eight Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.” Creative people sometimes need to be out of  the line to know how it feels to be beyond the line. And they will have more perspectives. Be rebellious for once, learn from the mistakes and implement it the next time they’re facing the same problem.

Nine “Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.”Creative people are always enthusiastic in every task. They will feel very happy and enjoying the work they are doing if they were happy with what they do. But they will be very objective in their work when they found that the work is not fun for them anymore.

Ten “Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.”Because of excessive exposure to those creative, they tend to be viewed by the public is more arrogant and noisy than ordinary people. They are more likely to absorb the negative words mentioned by the public than others, causing hurt more deeply than other people around. This also applies vice versa in terms of fun, they tend to enjoy things a little exciting, whatever they think and feel more clearly etched in their brain, which causes overly sensitive nature.
