You like to play
You didn’t lose your enthusiasm for play when you grew up. In fact, as an exceptionally creative adult, you still engage in “world play” of some kind, creating make-believe worlds with art or science. Your imaginary worlds led to more creative ideas.
You fall in love with your work
As a bona fide HCP, you have vivid recollections of moments or encounters that the authors call “crystallizing experiences.” They were “like love at first sight,” these are moments when you commit to your creative goal.
You let your mind wander
As a highly creative person, you believe in daydreaming. You ponder. You drift. You’re not zoning out—you’re incubating. When you take mindful breaks, your creative thinking improves.
