What is your creative style?

I swiped this quiz from one of my favorite blogs, How About Orange!  It was taken from Psychologies magazine and gives you questions to help determine your creative style.  Mine was right on:

You communicate through creativity

 You think of art as a means of reaching out to others but, at the same time, you use it as a shield to some extent. It’s a way of participating in society, in a community. It’s the way you communicate with others and the way they can communicate with you. Seen in this light, creativity provides the basic materials to build a bridge between you and other people, so you can’t think of it as something that lies outside your relationship with others. You like the attention and good opinion of others. When you show people what you’ve made — a birthday cake, or a piece of music you’ve written — it’s your baby, so you are very sensitive about any criticism. You need to be able to distance yourself from the result, and allow others to enjoy it and feel part of it, without it reflecting on you alone. Your creativity allows you (or would allow you) to feel part of the world. You’ve got an inner exhibitionist and you think that this strengthens your relationships. What you really want is for others to see the good in you. You prefer to get on the stage than stay in the wings analysing your inner life (although you do that, too). So let the show begin, but make sure your life doesn’t depend on the applause. •
So, so true!  I started this blog back in 2007 to be a creative outlet for me.  I mentioned this in my profile, but I feel that when you surround yourself with things that make you happy, then you can lead a life of pleasure.  My goal with this blog was to share things (I find pleasing) with the world, in the hopes that even one person's day could be brightened or one person's inner creative self could emerge.  My goal was also to share my ability to admire things for their beauty, without having to buy them...just being able to accept that something is beautiful or inspiring and then move on.  I hope I have done these things...at least once...maybe.  :)

Take the quiz and see what it says about you!  Also be sure to check out How About Orange, if you do not already regularly do so!

Thanks for the intro to How About Orange! I am not sure how I haven't seen that one.

I took it and found it to be accurate. I am 'creativity enriches you'. :)
