7 Characteristics of Highly Creative People | Inc.

7 Characteristics of Highly Creative People | Inc. | autonomous learning |

by Jessica Stillman


"A new Norwegian study has some suggestions. Forget the Myers Briggs, says the research from Professor Øyvind L. Martinsen of BI Norwegian Business School, what you really need to look for is a handful of traits that tend to be associated with highly creative individuals.

To identify these characteristics, Martinson gathered a group of artists, musicians and marketing creatives and compared them to a control group of managers and other in professions less associated with creativity. What personality traits stood out among the artistically inclined? Martinson found seven:


"Associative orientation: Imaginative, playful, have a wealth of ideas, ability to be committed, sliding transitions between fact and fiction.


Need for originality: Resists rules and conventions. Have a rebellious attitude due to a need to do things no one else does.


Motivation: Have a need to perform, goal-oriented, innovative attitude, stamina to tackle difficult issues.


Ambition: Have a need to be influential, attract attention and recognition.


Flexibility: Have the ability to see different aspects of issues and come up with optional solutions


Low emotional stability: Have a tendency to experience negative emotions, greater fluctuations in moods and emotional state, failing self-confidence.


Low sociability: Have a tendency not to be very considerate, are obstinate and find faults and flaws in ideas and people."
