S:0467 Principle: The Creativity Scale

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

Knowing where your “sweet spot” is on the creativity scale will help you produce more with less effort. The scale runs from Solo Creator on one end to Collaborative Creator on the other.

A solo creator is one who creates best working alone. Typically they will keep their product to themselves until it is pretty well finished. They don t need, or want, much input from others.

The highly collaborative creator will include input from, and participation with, others early and often. In fact, the more the merrier, for many collaborative types. A true collaborative will almost freeze up unless they have the interaction with others. A solo creator may freeze up if anyone interferes with them.

Most people are not at either extreme on the creativity scale, but it is helpful for you to assess your relative place. Knowing how you create best, and then designing your environment to suit you, will pay off quickly. You will produce more with less effort.
