So I have been reading through a bunch of different posts for something to do and it dawned on me that I don’t think I understand creativity. Or at least maybe I have a different definition to some.
I don’t think of myself as a creative person. I’m not artistic. I don’t play any music. I am not what you would call visionary in the sense that I don’t go out and make or do something totally new that is interesting or exciting or whatever.
Where I am gifted is that if I have a point A and a destination i can come up with 9 and half ways to get to the destination in a very short time and can implement them and deal with any bumps along the way . So someone says I have this vision of XYZ. Once I understand what XYZ is no problems consider it done. But I am not the guy that comes up with XYZ. Unless it’s an answer to an existing problem.
So I suppose the way I look at it creativity and original vision are the same thing.
And all the rest is problem solving. Sure I am “creating”the solution but to a question that is already there not my own novel thought or idea.
What dose every one think about this?
Dose my version of creativity even exist or are these people just identifying existing problems in the bigger picture?(exclude artists from this question they are something special because I think with art there often is no question to be answered just someone delivering there own vision for whatever reasons they have for doing so )
