    Do you think we're more creative than other types? What creative talents do you have?

    I think we're one of the more creative types. I don't think we're more creative than all the other types but we are certainly creative.

    My creativity lies in writing, thinking of ideas, crafts, cooking, etc.

    We are creative in our own way.

    Sure, I believe we are creative, not most creative, but still very creative.

    I think we are definitely creative. Not sure about "the most," but creative for sure.


    I find that one of the main ways creativity manifests itself through me is in... hmm, how to explain this?... I guess you could say: breaking the rules. Doing the "wrong" thing to achieve a desired result.

    Thinking outside the box, if you will.

    Once I learn how to properly use a tool, or the "correct" process to go through to get from point A to point B, I find I'm pretty adept at turning that all upside down and finding completely new uses for the tool, or bypassing the process completely to get from point A to point B, or using the process in a twisted way to get from point A to point X.


    I have a hunch other INFJs may be similarly adept, because that ability directly relates to being able to see "the big picture," so to speak, and looking at things from multiple perspectives.

    I have been told since I was a child that I am extremely creative. It's gotten me into trouble many times.

    I have a lot of creative thoughts and ideas. Not so good at manifesting them though. I'm alright when I put my mind to it.

    No I'm not creative at all. I'm all about destruction! Fire pretty!

    I might be joking.

    I take pride in my creativity. It may be that I am self delutional, but I like to think I'm not. I write, paint and listen to/play music.

    Sits in quiet closed-eyed contemplation for a while.
    Feels a sparkling new presence.
    Moves to the side to make room.
    Opens the lotus petals of the heart Chakra.
    Opens eyes to see a precious new Jewel
    appear in the Dharma-sky.
    What a pretty night tonight
    So many jewels - so many lights
    It's nice to share wavelengths sometimes! :smile:

    I'm not artistically creative but I do the fourish thing of reinventing myself either through imagination or actual integration of "soul renewal" lmao.

    I think every one is creative in a different way, one type isnt necessarily more creative than another. But that is my uneducated guess.

    You're wrong. You see, as an SJ.. you are boring and haven't an original thought in your head.

    I'm pretty damn creative. Sometimes too much so. I get pretty weird when my friends and I let our creativity go while.

    But yeah; I draw/paint, play a couple instruments, write, and make up bizarre scenarios for things, among other creative endeavors that are rather scattered over humanities and arts.

    Haha. Yes. I was only joking.. Merely being sarcastic about the negative stereotype towards the SJ temperament that I see people have on certain (not this one) mbti forums. You're definitely not boring at all. And I think you're creative as well, and usually--it's just not a party without your repartee.
