What are we like? What habitual tendencies might help keep our creativity going? Here is our style, our way of approaching life, work, play, our handling of challenges. After studying eminent creative persons across fields, Frank Barron found “originality almost habitual.” This means habitual in general, not just in one’s chosen areas of endeavor. Here we consider “personality,” our cognitive, social, emotional, intentional, qualities and more, and in interaction with environment. The watchwords for everyday creativity, and for living on this earth, include change, and plasticity.
