10 paradoxes

15 Desember 2009

Berikut ini adalah 10 sikap paradok yang dinyatakan oleh Mihaly:

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

there’s no one that could do something without rest. restless people usually not creative, because they often became saturated and their work became not good. so, rest and quiet is needed to become creative.

an example come from da-vinci, if he feels stuck, then he go into a quiet place and set up a condition to pleasure himself. after do that, he came with a lot of ideas.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.

people learn from their mistakes, and became stupid when they’re succeed. creative people should forget their success, and forget all common senses to be creative. so, they tend to be stupid, but they should think that they’re smart.

example. I forget all common senses and think about a clock integrated to an aquarium. in the time i think, i’m a stupid person that saw two things, clock and aquarium. But i’ve become smart at the same time when I got an idea to integrated the clock to an aquarium. so, i’ve got two functions in the same thing.

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.

playing and discipline would help people to became creative. for example. playing games in computer inspired me to do this task. and soon after I get inspired, i wrote this task down.

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.

do you believe that a clock that uses battery could be integrated to an aquarium? some people will say that it could trigger a short sircuit, but i imagine that. after that, i use my sense of reality to make it. a plain clock will trigger short sircuit, but if we create a waterproof clock, we could make it.

5. Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.
creative people sometimes need other people to develop an idea, but sometimes the idea came to them when they’re alone.

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.

we should humble because above us there’s still god that could create everything. but we should proud in order to cheer us up to create new ideas.

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.

no stereotype when you want to be creative. why? because stereotype limit us. and limited person will not free to develop ideas.

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.

sometimes, we should be conservative to know what people need. but we should be rebellious to any limitations that resist people to create ideas.

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.

i don’t understand about this one. could Mr. Agus help me?

10. Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.

pain could help us to become creative, most people became very smart, very creative whenever they are in a great pain, such as myself. because i was a sensitive person, i feel that i imitate something that is not in accordance with my principle, i feel a great pain.

but now, when I’ve been told that if I want something i should get a good IP. I became creative in doing task in order achieve that.
