16 Habits of Highly Creative People

050710_will_ilsmallIt is funny how things connect in a networked learning environment.

As an example, a few months ago I started reading Ken Robinson’s The Element — A book about creativity and learning, among other things.  His TED talk was listed on a post I did last week on Presentation styles.

Fast forward to this weekend — I saw a tweet from someone on my twitter list. It simply contained the words “16 habits of highly creative people and a link.

I clicked of course!

Along with a bunch of links to Ken Robinson’s work, the blog article also has a recap of another blog post that expounds on the 16 Habits of Highly Creative People.  Here are the 16 Habits and here is the original full post on the Tickled By Life blog:

1. Creative people are full of curiosity.

2. Creative people are problem-friendly.

3. Creative people value their ideas.

4. Creative people embrace challenges.

5. Creative people are full of enthusiasm.

6. Creative people are persistent.

7. Creative people are perennially dissatisfied.

8. Creative people are optimists.

9. Creative people make positive Judgment.

10. Creative people go for the big kill.

11. Creative people are prepared to stick it out.

12. Creative people do not fall in love with an idea.

13. Creative people recognize the environment in which they are most creative.
