Don’t You Have To Be “Gifted and Talented” To Be Creative? Part 2 - The Creative Mind | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it
What does it mean to be talented or gifted and how do identity and intelligence relate to being creative?

David Lynch on imagination and being multitalented

David Lynch on imagination and being multitalented | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it

David Lynch on being a creative polymath: "I started out as a painter, and then painting led to cinema...Then cinema led to so many different areas—it led to still photography, music . . . Furniture is also a big love of mine. I started building these kind of sculptural lamps. Then I got into lithography...And I’ve always been painting along the way, as well as doing drawings and watercolors . . . There are just so many things out there for us to do." [From Interview magazine.] // From my post "An Intense Inner Pressure to Create"

How Geniuses Think | The Creativity Post | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it

Thumbnail descriptions of the thinking strategies commonly used by creative geniuses.

"How do creative geniuses generate so many alternatives and conjectures? Why are so many of their ideas so rich and varied? How do they produce the "blind" variations that lead to the original and novel? A growing cadre of scholars are offering evidence that one can characterize the way geniuses think. By studying the notebooks, correspondence, conversations and ideas of the world's greatest thinkers, they have teased out particular common thinking strategies and styles of thought that enabled geniuses to generate a prodigious variety of novel and original ideas."

Multiple Talents, Multiple Passions, Burnout

Multiple Talents, Multiple Passions, Burnout | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it
Many multitalented people feel inspired to pursue multiple projects, often at the same time. One potential downside is physical and emotional burnout.

Jennifer Westfeldt wrote, produced and acted in her movie “Friends With Kids”...she also directed the “two-year, round-the-clock endeavor” - “I must have been crazy to have donned so many hats,” Westfeldt said. “It made good sense for me to direct it, since I was involved in every aspect anyway. But I’m not sure I’d ever do it again.”

» The Creative Personality: Both Smart and Naive - The Creative Mind | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it

In his article The Creative Personality: Ten paradoxical traits of the creative personality (from his book Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention), Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, PhD writes that “Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility” and that “Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.”

He says that “a core of general intelligence is high among people who make important creative contributions,” but according to the studies of Lewis Terman, “after a certain point IQ does not seem to be correlated with superior performance in real life” – including level of creativity.
