The Curse of the Creative

Fernand Cormon [Public domain]

A quote from Jordan Peterson…

“The worst thing for creative people is to not be creative.  They just die.  If you’re extroverted you can’t be cut off from people.  You just whither.  Open people have to be creative.  They have to be because otherwise they die.  They don’t have any vitality.  So, they’re cursed with the necessity of having to put one foot out into the unknown and making sense of it.  And they’re cursed with the necessity of having to make a living while they’re doing that…”
