What is a creative personality?
Creative people have a flair for making something from nothing, whether it’s writing a story, putting together new music, producing a film or even coming up with new hair styles. It’s not an easy thing to do and if you do naturally enjoy creating then you’re very lucky.
If you can tick more than five of the following points then you have a creative personality:
- I have lots of energy
- I’m not embarrassed to put ideas forward, even if they may seem silly
- I’m a playful person
- I have a vivid imagination
- I am passionate about the things I enjoy
- I enjoy hobbies
- I’m a sensitive person
- I would describe myself as an artistic person
- I enjoy creating new things
- I’m a very open person and I’m willing to listen to new ideas

Making money from a creative personality
It’s easy to think that you can’t make a good living if you go for creative jobs as often they are more competitive so people will take lower salaries (check our salary calculator for examples of average wages in different industries).

JK Rowling – Need we say more? The incredibly successful author of the Harry Potter franchise is now a multi millionaire. In fact, according to Forbes Magazine, she was worth £620 million in May 2011. Wowsas.
Steve Jobs – The sadly deceased creator of Apple was incredibly creative and saw product opportunities where other people didn’t. It was reported by Forbes that he was worth $7 billion before he died late last year.
Mark Zuckerberg – Another computer whizz, Zuckerberg came up with Facebook, which has revolutionised the way we use the internet and interact with each other. In November 2011 he was worth $17.5 billion. Yes, billion.
