Topics: Motivation
A creative person is someone who uses their imagination and intuition to create something new or to make changes to something that already exists. Creative people have many attributes such as openness to new experiences, observance, curiosity, personal freedom, a willingness to take risks, self reliance, persistence and the freedom from fear of failure. Intrinsic and extrinsic motivations are the two most commonly used methods of creative motivation. Intrinsic motivation refers to motivation that comes from inside an individual rather than from any external or outside rewards, such as money or grades. The motivation comes from the pleasure one gets from the task itself or from the sense of satisfaction in completing or even working on a task. Extrinsic motivation is the opposite of intrinsic motivation. Extrinsic motivation refers to motivation that comes from outside an individual. The motivating factors are external, or outside, rewards such as money or grades. These rewards provide satisfaction and pleasure that the task itself may not provide.

In a sort career she has already won 5 Grammy’s and has had 3 number 1 singles in the U.S. The most creative person in football at the moment would be Lionel Messi he is widely regarded as the best player in the world at the moment and has won almost every major honor in the game. Although working in very different worlds they are both incredibly creative people in their own ways.

However, you don’t need to be good at drawing or painting or music in order to be creative.
