You’ve probably heard someone say “I’m not really a creative type…”? When people say that, it’s quite rarely a positive thing. Probably never. They might mean that they are not artistic, but usually the message is that this person has given up on being creative in all the ways possible, because that’s just how the world works. Only some selected people get to be creative and they just weren’t part of that special group. He or she didn’t get the possibility to contribute on that domain. What a pity. Then everyone just hopes they are good at something else. Like playing golf or doing dishes. Something where they don’t need to be very creative. And they’ll live not very happily, but moderately satisfied ever after.
