    Default Creativity and the 16 types

    Hopefully we can do this without any N elitism!

    What is your type and how is your type creative?

    I am an IEI - one of the ways IEIs are creative is in the drama they fill their lives with. We are very imaginative at over-reacting, and we can use this "skill" for the entertainment of others, and also apply the concept to our artistic pursuits.

    INTps (ILIs) I would say are creative with dialectics and explanation. I for example am very theory-inventive; when I discuss things with people, I usually make up grand theories on the spot and go from there. But mind you, this is creativity, not correctness.

    I'm INFj. I'm inventive when it comes to strangeness - finding unintended meanings and interpretations, etc., changing my outlook on a situation in differing ways...

    I'm an ENTP.

    Well, I like to play with photography and digital art plus I paint and sketch;
    I like creating efficient systems and eliminating redundancies; I enjoy writing; and I'm pretty creative just solving any regular daily probs like making an antennea for my TV out of picture wire so I it doesn't look as gross as a hanger. Just silly little things.

    "Creativity and the 16 types"

    Hehehe, I'm such a inspirer like this topic for example....

    Anyways, I'm creative when it comes to solving problems and other things. That is when my comes most in handy when I'm stuck in a puddle, but it is so easy for me to get out. I just use my environment and look around and try to find how it can connect to what I'm doing to help me. I can also use my to do something boring that normally would take half an hour and do it in only 5 minutes. I also think of original ideas for creating a mod for a computer game and original short stores that I like to write. A lot of my ideas tend to not be very practical, but they tend to inspire people to make practical ones based on mine. When it comes to forums, I tend to make a topic and then I find someone do the same exact topic in the future, but with a twist.

    I don't really consider myself to be creative. I don't do music, art, crafts, etc. And generally i admire those who do do those things.

    I guess I could say that I'm great with figuring out different ways of doing something, as well as different views regarding any given situation. I don't normally consider this creative, cuz it's part of what defines me. It's not like I can STOP doing this.

    Creativity comes in different forms. It's the action of creating something original or solving something in an unconventional matter.

    music, arts and crafts tend to be activities that artisans excel in, which are SPs.

    I am a SLI and I like doing music a lot (playing, composing, arranging, producing...) I am also interested in design and photography and I am always interested in learning something new in any of these fields. I guess my creativity is best displayed in my ability to efficiently use my knowledge and the tools that are availible in order to produce a visible result...

    I'm an ENFp and I'm good at finding solutions to problems, and I'm a good storyteller.

    Yeah, well, you all know what I am.


    I don't like drama, but can be creative when I'm in the mood to be so. That's pretty concise and accurate as well.
