What’s Your Creative Style?

 

Thanks to Christine Clemmensen, I found a little test on Psychologies.co.uk that is said to determine your creative style.  Well, I couldn’t resist and here’s what it says is my creative style:

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 worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by molding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. 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.

Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life — making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear — you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality.

Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganized. For these reasons 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.

Wow, talk about hitting the nail on the head! That so feels like me and exactly how I feel about my art and why I create.

I can’t dispute one word this says…I am just so impressed!

Go and take and see what it says about you (you can find the quiz HERE)…then I hope you’ll come back and leave me a comment and let me know if yours fits you as well as I feel like mine fits me. I’m so curious to see!

Peace & Love,
Barb

  3. I can't believe this, but I just took the test and got the same results as you!!! Yeah!!! I did take the "happiness" test, but the questions were kind of weird. Of course having depression and anxiety disorder, I guess it wouldn't work very well anyways. Thanks for the test!!!
