    Default What is with this creativity stereotype?

    From almost every SP description, especially ISFP descriptions, I find something about being very creative. Well, I'm NOT creative. GAHHH!

    Sorry, more of a random outburst I needed. Ahhh, much better.

    What are your interests?
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    See this is what happens. People ask for interests and then assume it means creativity. Interests are interests, creativity is creativity. Two seperate things.

    I'm not sure what you mean, of course they can be related.

    Well what is it that you think of when it comes to "creativity" and how exactly do you not live up to that?

    Yes... they are related. Creativity (if you have it) will be expressed through whatever mediums are present in your life.

    How are you defining creative?

    I feel the urge to create, the need to express yourself through some medium is core to the type.

    You don't have to be physically creative..you don't have to dress or look like a creative person, you don't have to be an artist or a photographer or even someone who is even remotely interested in the arts..it's about how you think and carry out things.

    SPs use their natural creativity and apply it to day to day things.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    You know, there are people who are creative and don't show it because it's practical creativity.

    And then there are people who can draw and dress crazy who aren't creative at all.

    Creativity shows up in areas where the said individual is interested in. I'd say what makes something creative is originality and efficiency in the solution of whatever problem they're addressing.

    In some ways personality types are stereotyping. It's just that in general, most SPs are thought to be creative.
