Creative people are truly a weird breed and we mean that in the best possible way! Not only do they have a tendency to surprise us with their out of the box ideas, they also function on a whole different wavelength. While before it was just speculation, neuroscientists have actually discovered that creative people’s brains are hardwired in a unique way. This now helps explain the behaviour and traits creative people have. To help you further understand this, here are some important things to remember about creative people.
For a while now, it’s been known that creative people tend to have a mind that is permanently switched on. It never slows down and rarely takes a break. While an average person’s mind eventually stops thinking of ideas, unknown scenarios and possible outcomes, a creative person tends to dwell in their thoughts about the same. This is also the reason why creative people tend to have trouble sleeping. Creativity is pretty random when you think about it. Which is why it appears at random times and most often, in the night.
While a lot of the world runs around cribbing about problems, creative people tend to focus more on solutions. Once they understand a problem, they usually prefer to move on to understanding how they can resolve it. This usually leads to them having arguments with people who tend to only focus on the negatives and people who only talk about the problems. Their solutions are also usually extremely out of the box and often times considered too risky. However, creative people hate playing by the rules and prefer taking risks.
Creative people have a tendency of being extremely stubborn when it comes to their ideas or thoughts. Each person has their own opinions and beliefs. However, if you go up to a creative person and dismiss their ideas, they will still continue on ahead with their plans. They know that in order to create something new, you need to break past all the barriers that have been set in place. In order to do that, it requires them to hold strong to their ideas and beliefs. They realise that an average mind just cannot fathom the ideas they have. It’s not that they are being arrogant or rude. They are just wired that way.
During the downtime of the creative process, a creative individual must relax and renew their mind. The quiet time is the perfect moment to sit back and enjoy the mental peace. The constant noise in a creative person’s head can be pretty challenging to deal with for prolonged periods of time. The few times of stillness must be relished. This peaceful state won’t last forever, but the moment must be savoured. It won’t be long until new ideas are flooding a creative individual’s mind. During this time, they usually tend to zone out or go into a shell like emotional state. It’s important to realise that they just need their space and that they will be back to normal in no time.
The creative process can be a pretty intensive thing. This, in turn, can set a person’s emotions off in weird directions. They’re also extremely prone to have mood swings. This is also mostly because they are extremely in tune with their own emotions, as creativity requires passion. They are not afraid to examine their own loves, fears, and doubts. Most times, creative people tend to wear their emotions on a sleeve.
