We've been having an interesting discussion about gender dynamics and whether "intelligence" is resented by some people there. It was brought up in that thread that there is more than one kind of intelligence. ( Just as I brought up elsewhere that pornography and erotica don't necessarily have to be as narrowly defined as they typically are. )
What about creativity ? Is there more than one kind of creativity ? Do non-creatives resent creatives ? Do Creative Type #1's resent Creative Type #2's ?
One person mentioned already that creatives can simultaneously be egotistic and humble, childlike and mature, "big picture" and detail oriented. People have speculated that a "crossing of wires" in the brain may produce both synesthesia and creativity.
Here is another way to look at this.
