7 Characteristics of Highly Creative People | Inc.

7 Characteristics of Highly Creative People | Inc. | Jeannine's Tech Updates | Scoop.it

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."

Amir Shamsul's curator insight, March 22, 2013 8:30 AM

Yes I agree to this notion. I'm all for the introduction of iPads into the education system, both junior and senior. One of the small reasons is that it's more convenient than to carry heavy books around all day.

John Purificati's comment, March 31, 2013 9:58 AM
I'm hoping that at some point Apple will make the iPad a little bit more affordable. Hopefully, market pressure from the android world will change their minds.

Behind the Facebook Like Button [infographic] | Jeannine's Tech Updates | Scoop.it

Facebook has actually created and entire new way of marketing to the masses. Ever since Facebook installed the ‘like’ feature, seeming like you care about what your friends say and think has never been so easy. The Like button was an ingenious idea to quickly and easily get people involved with interesting posts and organizations.

"Education technology has changed what’s possible in learning. No longer are students confined to desks, textbooks, or even classrooms or schools. Today, a student has at least the potential for access to apps, an incredible catalogue of videos, podcasts, learning simulations, digital communities and so much more, all through a simple internet connection. The following 7 educational technology platforms are good representatives of some of these changes, and the chart above is a snapshot of how exactly they’ve changed what’s possible in learning, from new sources of data to the potential for a global audience."
