Daydreaming is a big part of their day. They get lost in thought, detaching easily from current surroundings. If you every find a writer, composer or an artist just sitting somewhere and staring at nothing, don’t be surprised. And you don’t really need to try to invite them back to the real world. They’re just having their own thing going on, and most probably this daydreaming will end up being an idea for a new creation.
They can change their opinion of their own works overnight. They can wake up one day and hate the very work they loved the day before. They judge with feelings and not logic. It doesn’t mean they are unstable, or they gone crazy or something. They just realized this is not what they wanted to do, and this final result is not in alignment with the initial picture they had in mind.
4. They are great at seeing situations from different angles. They can see both sides of issues and observe objectively. This is not about all of the creative people but most of them who are creative and a leader by nature, have this mind set to look at any situation and any subject from different perspectives and analyse different points of view.
They follow their heart. Even when they doubt, they can earn a living from their creativity, their art keeps them motivated and focused. They are called to follow their heart and block out the negative words they are told. They wouldn’t be the best employees and they wouldn’t be the most logical decision makers in the world, but one thing for sure is they make their decisions with their heart and their emotions, because that’s what makes them run.
They often seem childish to regular people. But the truth is, they can’t let the child in them die. They protect this child because it’s their connection to the creative source. When we are kids, our brain is more active in creative ways and during the process of growing up, we keep hearing things and learning rules and regulations from the society that makes us lose that since of creativity. But not these people. They protect their childhood and the kid inside them, and most people just don’t understand it.
Inspirations strikes anytime, anyplace, anywhere. Their spontaneous ideas are a part of their nature so don’t be surprised if they get distracted in the middle of a conversation. I can say the most common question I get about my career would be “But... How do you get inspiration for writing?” and my answer always is, “I don’t believe in inspiration.” Of course, I do believe, but I can’t explain for them how every little thing in the daily life is an inspiration and we don’t need to look for it. Inspiration comes, in the most unexpected times!
Most creative people are extremely loving. They love beauty and choose to express beauty through their art. They live for the moment and spread love everywhere they go. Maybe that’s one reason they’re often being seen as “cool” or “kind” people.
They notice the little details. They love watching the people and they are very observant of their surroundings. They often see what others miss and pull inspiration from everything around them. These little details are mostly the same main reason for the inspirations we were talking about it earlier.
Most of the creative people are real procrastinators. They struggle with deadlines and tend to put off tasks until the last possible moment. Well, I’d say this is not the best quality for these people but it’s true. Creative people are mostly having serious problem with timing. It can be the deadlines or schedules or even just a simple appointment to meet a friend, which if you have any creative friends around you, you should have noticed that they are almost always late!!
