We all possess a unique creative type made up of a distinctive combination of these 7 profiles:

Starter


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you start things!


Your creativity is uniquely fashioned to initiate. You can see potential in things that are not necessarily there yet. You have a way of seeing the “gold” in people or situations where others don’t see any.Your ability to envision how situations will unfold, enables you to turn lead into gold, which makes you an “alchemist”.

You possess an optimistic view of the world. You are a glass half-full type of person and you love uplifting people and communities. You do this not necessarily for the profit but especially for the joy you derive by seeing things work, or by igniting something, or by seeing communities uplifted, or by helping people generate their own income, or advancing in life.

This is the creative type of entrepreneurs, businessmen, and innovators.


Trainer


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you train others!


As a trainer, you love knowledge and are inquisitive by nature. You love asking questions, researching things, and understanding how and why things work the way they do.

Beyond that, you love explaining things, to others and even to yourself when you are alone. You try hard to break down complex concepts to explain them in an easier way. You look for and recall analogies and examples to better explain yourself.

Your greatest kick is seeing the “light” go on inside someone when you are explaining something. That “Ahhh…” moment is your reward.

This is the creative type typical of teachers and coaches but is very prominent also in “solvers”: engineers, consultants, doctors/surgeons, people who love being in a position to “process” and explain knowledge.


Merchant


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you work with finances or numbers!


As a merchant, you naturally work well with money and can make things profitable. You see opportunities to turn things into gain or reward. As a child you would probably have found a way to turn your $1 dollar into $2 dollars, maybe by selling your mother’s oranges for a profit to pedestrians.

You are thrifty but not afraid of spending money, because you can allocate expenditure in a way that creates more wealth. You use the systems available to turn a profit. Whether simply moving funds from one account to another, making payments in a specific order, or re-adjusting policies and payments to go further with what you have.

You try to make a profit even without spending a dime. You are an investor with a keen eye for future business potential and/or profitability.

This is the creative type typical of  investors, financial advisors and accountants.


Solver


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you solve problems!


What makes you thrive is to solve problems. You like building a bridge (both figuratively and literally speaking) to connect two sides, to fill a gap, to connect resources to needs.

Your creativity flows when you help others. You are practically inclined, enjoy “getting in there”, and “getting your hands dirty”. You love finding solutions that make things work. You might be a surgeon, an administrator, or an engineer. Finding ways to solve issues, in whichever field you might work, energizes you. You are diligent.

Your creative juices get into gear when you can solve problems, whether by bringing about innovation or establishing a structure that will serve people.

Leader


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you lead!


Your creativity is linked to your passion to lead people, manage teams, help others to reach their potential, or to enable others to grow.

Your creativity is linked to giving direction or guidance to others by helping them to stick to a common goal, or by helping them to focus on what lies ahead. You are a visionary. Your focus is on the future and your creativity enables you to reveal that future to others.

You are a scouter, one who “sees” and who wants others to see with him. Your creativity explodes when you can find ways to bring about clarity, direction, movement, and action.

This is the creative type of managers, executors, directors, MDs, CEOs, foremen, and statesmen.


Revealer


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you reveal things!


You love revealing, describing, and expressing things to others. Many are the “expressive” tools that fuels this creativity type, be it words, visual, musical, or technology based.

You love expressing concepts so that people can make connections in their minds, but you also like expressing emotions so that others may feel and experience things for themselves.

You are driven by a desire to make others think about what’s going on around them, upholding a mirror that reflects society and culture, and allowing people to see reality from a new or different perspective.

This is the creative type of artists, designers, writers, marketers, and advertisers 


Connector


Your creativity sparks and is most visible when you can connect with people and help people to connect!


Your creativity is geared towards connecting people with each other. Guided by empathy, you love connecting people or creating connections between them. You feel for people and can easily put yourself in their shoes.

You love working with people and leaning towards vocations, like human resources, social upliftment, medicine, communication, management, or technology. Your creativity thrives when you can uplift people, often by assisting them to improve or by creating an environment where they can grow.

You care about the feelings of others.

This is the creative type of managers, HR workers, social workers, journalists, lawyers, doctors, and people in the hospitality fields.
