Quiz: What's your creative style?

If you're curious to know what your particular brand of creativity reveals about you, take this little quiz from Psychologies magazine.

I learned that for me, creativity is "a magical world in which you like to immerse yourself. When you’re involved in it, you get the wonderful sensation that there are no limits, that anything is possible." Ah, magical! That explains why I always try to sneak a unicorn or leprechaun into every brochure I design.

this is what i got:

Creativity is a release:
For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external world.

I think that's basically true but the rest of it went on to be quite dramatic and that bit isn't so accurate. I don't crochet because of some deep dark inner battle lol.

Thank you for sharing that was a lot of fun to take.

Rachael said...

i got the same thing as you. We must both like to sneak in the unicorns.

Jess said...

Denice, I think you DO crochet for that very reason. You have probably repressed a traumatic memory, and crocheting helps you cope. For sure.

Jess said...

A typical two-page spread from one of my brochures. I'm not kidding about the unicorns. Clients love it.

Moe said...

I just took the quiz & I "communicate through creativity". I think that is so true! As an artist (which I need to feature more on my blog!) I use common motifs to communicate a broader message. We all identify with certain specific images & its best to use what is known to better communicate.

Thanks for sharing!

Very cool quiz...thanks for sharing! I got that I "communicate through creativity" which is very true for me.

Sarah O. said...

I got "creativity is a release" also.

Erin Wallace said...

I communicate through creativity - it is a way for me to communicate with others so if it is received poorly I am higly affected - Bingo!

xo Erin

Terri M said...

I got the same result as you...again. It happens all the time. It must be why I so enjoy your blog. :)

Grandma G said...

Hmmm.... it told me I'm not creative at all.

Not really. I "communicate through creativity".

KooKoo said...

everything is true :)

Ashley said...

Creativity gives me insight...or, so says that quiz :) I DO sometimes like to express how I feel (okay, a lot), but I also just like making pretty things sometimes. :) Thanks for the cute quiz!

Kathy Martin said...

Interesting quiz! I enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!

I'm not normally one for taking such surveys as the questions sometimes seem to be quite obvious as to where they are leading. This one was much more subtle and the results for me are oh so true. Thank you for the link!

I got Creativity enriches you.

"When you’re involved in it, you get the wonderful sensation that there are no limits, that anything is possible."

Absolutely!

Elda C said...

wan said...

I just spent two days reading your blog way back to the first post.

CitricSugar said...

I communicate.

You find the coolest diversions, Jess!

Bek said...

I got the same results as you!

Usually those quiz questions can be so leading and it's easy to get the result you want, but I found this one a lot more subtle. Fun.

Andrea said...

I got the same as you, but with me it's fairies rather than unicorns! I loved your brochure by the way, laughed outloud, thanks for that.

Jess said...

Fairies, good idea. I'll sprinkle some around on my upcoming brochure for hospital management software.

Andi Lia said...

Hmm, I love unicorns and all the whimsical things too, but here's what I got:
"creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by moulding them into a physical form."
Huh? Lol...
Thanks for sharing the quiz, I enjoyed it :)

The 'Stache said...

I love the quizzes you find!

tamdoll said...

Very interesting, thanks for the link! I got the "Creativity is a release" and that's very true for me!

Creativity is a release

"You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape." - That is SO ME !

Carissa Rasmussen said...

that is a pretty good descriptor of me I think...creativity is a release-- you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside, and that unites spontaneity, strength, freedom, power and movement.
an accurate description of a ballerina:)

Torrie said...

I got the same as you!

I agree with Terri in that I believe that this is the reason that I enjoy your blog and your way of sharing BOTH information, ideas, and creativity in unison.

ashley said...

how fun, i got the same result as you.. and it was dead on for me!

Cattie said...

That was fun! I got the same lead-in as others, that reativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. I guess, but what really fit was this "you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses". Spot on. As soon as I read about any creative projects, I start collecting the necessary equipment in my mind. I have many half-finished ones lying around the house... :-)

biggerKrissy said...

i got the business about creativity as a release. there was a lot of talk of feelings.

i have a plush toy business and just learned how to make glass beads. i feel they're awesome, but it pretty much ends there. hmmm.

Clemencia said...

thank you so much for sharing this, for me creativity is a release :)
