Traits of Creative People

“All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea.”
Napoleon hill

Creativity may become one of the most desired traits (or skills) of the 21st century. A year ago, Kennesaw State University study found that while only 29% of MBA and EMBA programs offer courses in creativity and innovation, nearly 92% of the others expect to offer one in the next five years. That’s great news for those of us who teach creativity and value a generalist approach to business.

Here’s a list of 32 traits of creative people, compiled by Dr. Robert Alan Black.
