My new question to ask everyone nowadays is whether or not they would consider themselves a creative person. Perhaps it began out of a mission to convince everyone of my perspective, that each human is a creative person! But now I am more in listening mode, trying to learn why some people consider themselves creative and others do not.
I am becoming definitely convinced that it is mostly about perspective. I have asked several people who are in the same profession and they have all given me different answers that range from, "No, absolutely not" to "Yes, I am!" and then the in between of, "I'm working on it". This is intriguing to me and I am excited to learn more about why people consider themselves creative or not and what an individual person's definition of Creativity does to their perception of themselves as a creative person.
I guess, as a painter, I see myself as an artist who is a creative individual. The areas that I see myself as weak in are those of the pragmatic nature (such as scheduling and organization, which take a lot of time for me to work on). Those things are vital to my creative process, though, and when they are not in alignment can really trip up my ability to make my art work!
For now, I will continue to survey those I meet and work with to hopefully dig into this topic a bit more. So, I ask you, would you consider yourself a creative individual? If yes, then why? If no, then why not? and what is your personal definition of the word creative?
