Creative People and Madness

A number of mental health challenges and myths relate to creative people.

Via Douglas Eby

Cindy Hartman's curator insight, April 8, 2013 8:13 PM

ADHD traits are similar to traits seen in highly creative persons and often, highly creative people are found to have ADHD. The ENTP personality, the  “inventor”, the “artist”, the “writer”, the “actor”… Think daydreamer and poet, Robert Frost or the “addled” inventor Thomas Edison… And then there is da Vinci and his scant 17 paintings over the course of 67 years. Some of da Vinci’s paintings were never even finished because his interests were “many and diverse” Classic ADHD. Creativity is born of original thought. ADDers have minds that put things together in new and different ways. Adders and creatives have the enviable ability to think abstractly, outside the proverbial box. Novel ideas and approaches abound. These folks are often quirky, unconventional, off-the-wall. Madness? You decide!

The App That Could Put An End To Sexist Ads

The App That Could Put An End To Sexist Ads | Therapy | Scoop.it
When it comes to portraying women fairly and accurately, advertising doesn't have a great reputation.

 

"MissRepresentation, the organization and advocacy campaign behind the "Miss Representation" documentary, is currently producing and soliciting funding for an app called #NotBuyingIt, which will allow users to photograph, map and share advertisements that belittle or objectify women. According to Elizabeth Plank at PolicyMic, "[I]t will kind of be like a centralized, peer-reviewed, crowd-sourced complaint department for all companies that boldly continue to use sexism to sell their products."

Black Smurfs: The Birth Of Modern Zombie Fiction

 

Superficially, zombies are always about the mass, about the horde. They embody our fears of mortality and death (what of us lingers after we are gone?) and frequently exhibit our neurosis of becoming, or being prey to, otherness.Whether as a parody of consumerism – shuffling, insatiable, mindless beings driven solely to consume (even depicted tearing through a mall in Dawn of the Dead, 1978) – or as a manifestation of terrorism – they could be any of us, they could come from anywhere, they look like us but we can’t understand what they want (see: 28 Days Later, 2002) – zombie fiction often gives license to what it is that we fear our society at large might soon become as we fight to hold on to the individuality and selfhood that defines us.
