Doug Eby at The Creative Mind reports on research about the possible association of creativity and mental illness. I want to take a look at the underlying research. I don’t think there are “creative people.” That term is redundant. Furthermore, I tend to question the baseline for determining what “normal” behavior is in a society that rewards conformity. Perhaps there is a link between reduced inhibition, creativity, and anxiety. If so, is that not worth the risk? I will report back after I take a look at this and other research. For now, it’s food for perhaps borderline thought, worthy of a post leading into a weekend.
