    Default Creativity and extroversion

    Can't be a mistake that Ne doms are extroverted

    A little too much emphasis on the extroverted side of the equation. Introverted judgement has plenty of domain in the realm of aesthetics, and those "Eureka" moments he's talking about can very well be introverted intuition. That said, experiencing/interacting/etc.. will get the juices flowing for sure. Even a hardcore introvert needs some exposure to other ideas or happenings...or something (it's almost impossible not to anyways, so that goes without saying).

    I don't think that creativity is any more present in extroverts, but it is true that ideas are very much connected to the external world. There has been many occasions where some invention was made in two places at the same time. While these inventors seem to have nothing in common, I would guess that they had the same resources (knowledge) available, there was a bunch of unconnected ideas going around, and then the inventors just put them together to make their inventions. So, the inventor is not as important as it seems. There is the info, and someone is going to make use of it.

    Personally I have more ideas when brainstorming, but it seems they are not "new" ideas, it is more like I will take someone else's idea go through it in my mind and give them back another more elaborate option based on the original idea.

    I don't think extraverts are any more creative than introverts but they are probably more likely to get recognition for their ideas because they are more likely to put them out there.

    You guys are reading my post too literally. All I mean is that it gives a tangible reason for Ne doms, supposedly the most creative types, to be extroverts, beyond the whole 'your dominant function must match your I/E' thing. It explains the function I guess.

    How are Ne doms the most creative type and not Ni? Se can be just as creative as Ne too(I mean ISFP is called the artist).

    "Ne doms, supposedly the most creative types" is kinda like saying "Ne doms, supposedly the most mentally-ill types".

    How is relating Ne doms to creativity and mental illness even close to being the same thing? Ne as a function is very much what creativity is - the ability to see different options, make connections to seemingly unconnected things. In the same sense, I have no problems saying that the most productive/organised types are Te doms or that the types which care the most about social agreeableness are Fe doms. No one is saying that other types don't have these traits, nor is anyone saying that one ISTJ could be more creative than an ENFP. This is a generalization made strictly from function preference. I really don't see what the problem is here.

    I'm a Ne dominant and I have zero creativity in me.


    I will say my best ideas come invariably after a prolonged period of socialization and external stimulation. Then I go into seclusion and two days or so afterwards...BAM!

    Creativity has less to do with temperament, and more to do with processing.
