I said yes, but apparently not after looking at the results. Ask my friends. Or my mom. Heck yea.

Taking selfies, editing them, and posting them on tumblr/ instagram/ Facebook/ twitter doesn't make you "artsy".

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.

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.

I can get metal to stick together, can design a special tool or fixture to address a need, and can follow a plan and incorporate improvements, but have zero creativity. I can't even write a good story without first being given a basic idea about the storyline.

My profession is as a session musician and producer, so yes by default.

I don't really consider the skill as important as the idea. Anyone can train a skill, or even develop one.

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

As someone who loves writing, reading, art, theater, literature, design, and innovation, at the end of the day, I would say I'm a pretty creative person.

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.

Not creative in an artistic sense. I'm very good at creative problem solving though and thinking of ways to reapply stuff I already know in new ways to solve problems.

Not in the drawing, painting way. But I love to act and that's my creative outlet.

I'm always doodling or creating things out of office supplies or whatever I find around me.

I am a writer, so yes. I currently have three stories on a website called Quotev, only 1 of them finished, and I plan on putting more on there! I just. Need to finish the other 2 first.

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".

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.

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 ?

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.

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.

Way more creative, and an infinitely better designer than 90% of the population. Creating is my life. I couldn't live without art.
