Creative Character Trait
The creative character trait of an individual is really about the creative thinking abilities of one's mind to change something or to create something entirely new. The creative mind asks the question, "what if" and opens the door to possibilities; to find solutions, make something beautiful, or even revolutionize human capabilities.
Everyone is creative. Everyone has the ability to be creative, but some of us have strong creative character trait abilities. These creative people harness that power to enhance their learning, career and relationships. They imagine and dream about the possibilities. And they have a tendency, an intense desire, to create what their mind reveals.
Learning and Education
The more the creative person experiences and learns, the more they can expand their creative thinking skills. When creative people go through the learning process it helps to reveal different perspectives, potential solutions and new ideas.
Work and Career
An employee who is a creative thinker; one who approaches things strategically, offers new ideas and ways to improve existing business processes, AND can solve complex issues; is highly sought after. Can you say, competitive advantage?
The creative person often brings an open-mind, intelligence and different perspectives; maybe adds interesting and dynamic self-expression, desire and intense passion to a relationship. That's part of the fun with thinking outside the norm!
