Are you more creative than the average person?
Sure, but are you more conceited than the average person? :-)
I sometimes feel conceited answering "yes" to these.
I'm looking forward to putting together an "Are you X than the average person?" infographic. Smarter, funnier, more creative, more attractive...should be interesting to see the characteristics of those few people who answered all "Yes" or all "No".
Taking selfies, editing them, and posting them on tumblr/ instagram/ Facebook/ twitter doesn't make you "artsy".
I'm creative unless someone asks me to be creative on the spot then im just about as creative as a potato..
No. My sister though, is sooo creative its unbelievable! She is currently writing 5 books, she makes clay sculptures all the time, she can draw like no other, and creates amazing/funny videos! She is one talented girl. I'm very proud of her. Her creative mind never stops. She will go far in life.
One of my teachers wrote of me that he lives in a world of his own creation. I still live there even at 60 years of age and it's wonderful. ????
I'm creative when it comes to art.
Not "Saw" death traps creative.
When my teacher told us to write about anything three pages long I wrote about what it would be like to be stuck in the angel of a nativity scene. Does that type of thing count ?
Way more creative, and an infinitely better designer than 90% of the population. Creating is my life. I couldn't live without art.
I think everyone has creativity within, but I do believe I am abnormally creative.
Or do they call that weird?
I think so. I love doing all kinds of creative things. Recently I've been making my own knitting and crochet patterns. I designed my wedding dress 21 years ago. I make amazing birthday cakes for my children (Batman yesterday & Taz today for 2 of them). And many other ways.
I feel like a craftsman who was born in a time of factory widget making sometimes.
Except when buying Christmas gifts
I finally got to say "yes" to one of these, too! I write, sew, knit, crochet, spin my own yarn (I have a spinning wheel and a drop spindle), make fancy schmancy birthday cakes, sketch...I don't feel right unless I'm creating something.
All that stuff at the beginning? Yea its called "duct tape"
musically - yes. aurally, yes. I can't draw a stick man to save my goddamn life though...
Im slightly more insane, does that count?
Not with my hands in an arty sort of way. But the stuff that comes out of my brain is totally out of control.
I think some people have very different definitions of what it means to be creative. It is curious though that some people's definition of creativity pretty much applies to everyone, therefore not really making them more creative than average. Some of these comments made me laugh :-)
52% of people are more creative than the average person.. Hmm...
I see at least two types of creativity : problem solving and creating abstract or concrete things of originality.
I guess SOH people are more creative then the average person :)
I'd actually love to live in one of the historical re-enactment villages. I have the right skills. I just need the right clothes and no one would even know I wasn't from the 20th century!!!
How am I supposed to know how creative the average person is?
Sure, creative writing counts.
Herd'fd jhuud walala iloput.
I created my own language, beat that!
This is the first time I could say yes! I don't think I'm better-looking, smarter, etc than the average person, but I think I'm pretty creative.
It wasn't asking if you are more "special"
Not in the drawing, painting way. But I love to act and that's my creative outlet.

If you are serious you have to beat a 150 page grammar and 5,000 words of mine. We are not alone, I've read an estimate of 20,000 experimental languages. Klingon is well known for instance.
I have to wonder how many of the people who are more creative than average are actually just narcissistic.
Not at all! Of course I also answered no to being smarter, better looking and funnier. I will, however, answer yes to "lower self-esteem" than the average! :)
It's fun to be creative on your essay questions on finals. I like to have a lot of fun with those. Once I had to talk about my favorite part of English and I said I get chills whenever I hear about adverbs
My profession is as a session musician and producer, so yes by default.
Me too!!!! I've long felt I was born in the wrong era for my set of skills.
Jms, I am sure the right fit is out there for us. I am thinking we need to make it happen...
I always feel like I have to be doing something with my hands, and doing arts and crafts is the perfect outlet for that. I especially love doodling, origami, and most recently, crocheting.
I'm creative, but as with so many of these, "Are you above average in XYZ?" you've got to wonder, "Since when have you been able to judge yourself as being above average in XYZ area?" I said no.
Please dont use that word
Create my own embroidery designs for my machine I create my own knitting designs and crochet designs and I have created many recipes so I would say yes. Also haves tendency for depression. Tends to go with being creative.
It is very difficult in my opinion. There is no perfectly average world to compare ourselves. What is average appearance here isn't the same as there.
Why do you say that, and how do you know? What percent of people would you EXPECT to say they think they're more creative than average? What percent of people actually ARE more creative than average? Isn't that last figure 50%? Take a look at the numbers again.
One of those painting elephants?
I answered yes, simply because my mind sometimes wanders along very strange and creative paths, which I'm pretty sure most other people's minds haven't traveled. One time in my teens I started thinking along the lines or Rene Descartes, before I even knew about him . . .
I am in certain areas like application of mathematical theories. I am not artistic at all though.
No, but people feel I am as I will always find the easiest most expedient way to complete a task. It's not creativity in my mind. It's just getting the job done.
Depends on how you use it. ????
