Another problem with creativity in people is that so many people think they are creative when they’re really not. Creative people, well the ones that are the most creative, are often constantly critiquing their work. And to a large degree understand what is good and what is not. Creatives tend to be a little cynical at times. But when you’re someone that feels everything you do is good, you are lying to yourself. Even the best creatives take L’s.
You should never allow your own arrogance to get into the way of you being creative. Challenge your views of the world, and then question what made you go to that point. That is not only when you create, but you find out things about yourself you never knew existed. But that means exposing yourself and lying yourself bare. Which is another creative trait, allowing yourself to be vulnerable; something so many can’t and won’t do.
