Dimensions of Creativity

creative person

By Peter Shepherd

One can approach tasks in one's life in a positive, creative manner or in an ineffectual, at worst destructive manner. These are the various dimensions involved. They're a good way of assessing where a person is at.

Challenge
In response to a challenge, the creative person will approach it energetically and with enjoyment. In the same situation a negative person will feel alienated and approach it with indifference - or even with hostility or fear, considering it a threatening problem.

Freedom
A creative person prefers to be independent and is happy to take initiatives and give voice to ideas. A more ineffectual person tends to be passive and rule-bound, questioning little.

Liveliness
If someone's excitedly busy, happy and humorous they're probably being creative, or at least productive; if they're boringly slow, serious and dull, it's unlikely.

Openness
Someone with a positive mentality tends to be trusting and considers mistakes as something to learn from. A negative person tends to be suspicious and considers failure as deserving of punishment.

Conflicts
When conflicts arise, a positive, creative person will look for a helpful win-win compromise, which requires willingness to communicate with understanding and empathy. A negative mentality loves being critical, won't listen and the result is worsened conflict or even outright warfare.

Risk taking
A positive, creative person takes responsibility readily and doesn't hesitate to risk acting on new ideas. A more negative person is fear-driven, tending to make cautious, safe decisions, fusses about the details, and is content to be committtee-bound, thus avoiding responsibility.

Creative people: employ them, promote them, go into business with them, make friends with them, if you get the chance marry one. Destructive people, don't!
