There’s something charming and irresistible about creative people. She may have a quirky nature that lights up your day when you look at her newly finished painting on the easel or he may be the author of an intriguing novel, the words in which, have inspired change in your life. Musicians, writers, painters, scientists and business people can all be creative. What is it that draws you to these people? Is it the way they see the world from a different perspective or the intrigue they cast over everyone they meet? What makes these people stand out from the crowd?
Neuroscience confirms that highly creative people think and act differently than the average person. It seems their brains are hardwired in a unique way. The truth about creatives is they live in a completely different world. Imagine seeing the world through a creative brain… Imagine being able to get inside a creative brain and see for yourself an intensity fueled by curiosity. A place for eccentric conversations and fun activities along with mind blowing ideas where there is no pause or stop button.
Creativity is about human expression and ingenuity, it is a means of communicating. And it is remarkable how creatives can adapt and overcome any situation to achieve their goal. Highly creative people have been known to be on the edge of happiness and depression, full of energy and focussed, however, this doesn’t mean they are hyperactive or have a mental condition, it simply means their intellect and personality traits are more complex than most people. The way they think is unique to themselves and this mysterious process is what makes them so distinctive.
Their sensitive heart may be the source of their brilliance yet also the source of their suffering for a creative can leap from imagination and fantasy to reality… then to a new reality. What I mean is, this ability to escape enables them to create an original idea, form it into something worthwhile which can be recognised and consider appropriate for society. The year Einstein described the theory of relativity saw him publish five papers on the subject. His passion and emotional involvement, as well as his creative intellect in his project, were evident.
“A man falling from the roof of a house is both in motion and at rest at the same time.”
The way Einstein conceived this theory showed creative genius at work in that he used multiple opposite statements or antithesis. This contradictory nature of his conclusion is a form of creative cognition.
What is it that draws people to creative minds? It is their ability to reconnect YOU to your creative self. It’s that spark of fire and light that mingles with your subconscious awakening a purpose, inspiring a project, inviting passion into your imagination. Creative people love sharing their zeal, it’s contagious, so hardwire your mind by thinking on a deeper level and bend the norm to become unique to you. Adopt a creative!
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories and articles I feel are worth writing about.
