The answer is yes. Everyone is creative. But everyone is not created the same. There are many types of creativity.
If you have this type of creativity, you’re good at talking with people, discussing ideas, and building relationships with others. You like working with others to come up with solutions. Try inviting someone to work with you on the project so that you can unleash your creativity more easily.
Some people like to be alone. You may call them introverts or loners, but this type of person tends to like to brainstorm things alone. They like to journal, read, research and study research in order to get answers, but they prefer to do it alone. If you’re this type of person and you want to be creative try making a presentation for the problem so you can see it visually.
You love to play sports and/or move as much as possible doing things like walking, biking, skating, and swimming. You tend to notice people’s body language more than others.

This type of creative personality likes to garden, be outside, take nature photos and more as long as it’s with nature. For the nature lover, unleashing their creativity can be as simple as ensuring your desk is in front of the window and you have a good view. Plus, always get more sunlight. Stuck for an idea?
