Are all people creative?

September 28, 2017

There are two main points of view on the creative personality. According to the first view, creativity or artistic ability is, to varying degree, inherent in every person. It is as inseparable from humans as the ability to think, speak and feel. Tellingly, the realization of creative potential, regardless of its scale, makes a person mentally developed. To deprive a person of this possibility means to form a neurotic condition. Some psychoneurologists even see the essence of psychotherapy in the treatment of neuroses by awakening the creative aspirations of a patient. 

According to the second point of view, not every person can be considered a creative person, or a creator. This position is linked to another understanding of the nature of creativity. Here, in addition to the unprogrammed process of creating something new, the value of a new result is taken into account. It should be socially useful, although its scale may be different. The most important feature of a creative person is a strong and steady need for creativity. A creative person cannot live without creating, seeing in it the main goal and the main content of their life. 

So, do you think all people are capable of being creative?

  • Yes, to an extent
  • No, this trait is absent in some

Do you trust your intuition?

September 26, 2017

Intuition is the ability of a person to predict a particular event. It is an understudied ability of the human psyche, which enables you to make the right decisions that lead to a successful and happy life – in the absence of logical considerations. Each person has this ability, to a greater or lesser extent; usually, there are no exceptions. Nevertheless, people are rational beings. We are brought up in a world where common sense and logic dominate, and some people are quite skeptical about the development of intuition and the very fact of its existence in general. In a state of stress and tension, the possibility of developing intuition is absent as chaos and clutter interfere with hearing the true inner voice. If you try to turn off thinking, you can open the door for intuition. Some are convinced that the more you trust your intuition, the better it will work. This unique ability can be used in any area of life: home, work, game, etc. Decisions taken intuitively often turn out to be correct, but this feeling appears and disappears quite suddenly. 

So, do you trust your intuition?

  • Yes
  • Sometimes
  • No
