Here is my opinion..

Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

Of course they have a lot of physical energy because they are creative people and usually creative people use their entire body to be the subject of their creativity or even the object of it. If they are also quiet, it means they want to tell everyone that quietness doesn’t mean they don’t have anything in their minds to be done.

Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.

They don’t have anything to fear of to be tried.

Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.

It is not just for the creative people, I think it depends on the people that u think qualified in the criteria of creativity is. I think there are no criteria of creativity, so I think that there is also no reason to say it just for the creative people.

Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.

Everyone has imagination, but only people with creativity who try to make it become reality with their sense of fantasy.

Creative people tend to be both extroverted and introverted.

Sometimes creative people want to fulfill their social needs even sometimes their social needs become their road block of their imagination or fantasy. That’s why they tend to be both extroverted and introverted.

Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.

Creative people are proud because they invent something that anyone else never thinks before, and creative people are humble after they invented something that anyone else never thinks before. That’s what keeps them to produce something new in their life.

Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping

Fair enough.

Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.

Creative people are conservatives in their way of making something that anyone think it’s impossible, and their way of making it is what makes them to be called rebellious.

Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well

Yes, they are very passionate because there are always new challenges for them in their work, because creative people tend to think out of the box. Without objectivity their work will just become at their box, not out of their box.

Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.

No pain, no gain.


So, in the end I think that creative people just want to be different and same at the same time. Because however, they still live at the same world as ours. I think those paradox are just a picture that told us of how the creative people want to live usually like common people with their difference way of thinking, how they want to combine the uncommon things and how they want to prove the impossible become possible.
