Reading: A Three Facet Model of Creativity (Robert J. Sternberg)

Small list of personality attributes which creative people are said to possess:

  • -tolerance of ambiguity
  • -willingness to surmount obstacles
  • -willingness to grow
  • -intrinsic motivation
  • -moderate risk-taking
  • -desire for recognition
  • -willingness to work for recognition

Am still trying to process this article properly, so I'll come back and edit later. Right now the idea of having a 'tolerance for ambiguity' intrigues me. I guess in a creative field you have to deal with a lot of overlapping concepts and general fuzziness.
