1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

I agree with the opinion above, some creative people need time to calm down, calm and silent for a moment. In the period of “calm” this is the creative people think and pour the thoughts. A clear mind and apart from the stress, routines and other activities, can produce things creative. Therefore, although the creative people who have great energy, often calm down to think creatively.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time

I am confused with this opinion, but creative people tend to be not a smart person; although not denying that there are also people who are creative and smart. It’s a creative person is not usually the same as ordinary people. I often find the creative people who “Naive”, which they did not flaunt his creative power to others.

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility

I agree with this opinion. Creativity can arise if we are in good condition. Only a few people who can combine playfulness and discipline proportions are balanced. People like this can produce creative thoughts. They’re not too stressed because of high routine, and not too relaxed in the play.

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy and a rooted sense of reality

Creative people usually start thinking with an imagination. With a limited imagination and the barriers that prevent people in thinking freely, making a lot of people who are not creative, and tend to be followers / audience than the people who succeed with his creativity. So that the creative minds should start from the imagination.

5. Creative people trend to be extroverted and introverted

Similar to the Mihaly opinion of number 1, where creative people tend to be quiet and a loner at certain moments, namely when he thought and imagination. But they are not always alone, they can adjust the balance between hanging out or socializing and silent.

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time

I agree with the above opinion, this is because Most creative people do not show explicitly the power or their ability. But when they took out of his ability, people who look to be struck.

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping

I am really confused with this opinion, but creative people usually think “out of the box”, so most of them are not rigid and fixed to the circumstances or the situation now. Creative people are not easily influenced by stereotypes, gender stereotypes that say that men should work and tend to be controlled as head of household, and women should only be busy in the kitchen.They do not yield to what they say. But they have a style, way, and individual tastes that distinguish them from ordinary people.

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative

I agree with these opinions. Creative people are not fixed and static in a situation, they always break through and penetrate the boundaries of existing. Creative people do not tend subject to the regulations. But in a break out of state, creative people are not too far, they remain on the conservative path, although not subject to the ways that conservative.

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.

I agree with this opinion, this is because creative people are enthusiastic and excited about the job he loved. However, creative people who do not fanatic and hyperbole to work it.
10. Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment

This opinion is for me a little confusing, but the creative spirit that is open and sensitive can result in 2 things for them. The first is that they can experience suffering and pain that hurts.However, they also get the joy and enjoyment in large amounts in their souls.

In conclusion, I think the 10 paradoxes expressed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is the result of a very good analysis and very useful for those who try to be creative. If seen from the above statements, then the creative people do not see the world only a 2-sided, the world is not limited to black or white, good or bad, and the left or right. But not limited to this world.
