I found this quiz on a blog I love called Cupcake Monkey, only to realize it came from another blog I love called How about Orange, small world, huh? It was taken from Psychologies magazine and gives you questions to help determine your creative style.
Here are my results:
Creativity is a release
For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by moulding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape. Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life — making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear — you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality. Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganised. For these reasons you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside, and that unites spontaneity, strength, freedom, power and movement.
It couldn't have been more spot on! Everything I love about creativity, from painting the walls in a home to creating a marketing piece, to sewing, is that it's all about giving life to all the ideas and visions in your mind. I have to find creative projects on a regular basis to keep me going, even if it's just blogging!
