Mihaly menyatakan ada 10 sikap paradoks yang dimiliki oleh orang-orang Kreatif.

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.
orang kreatif mempunyai banyak energi saat mereka sedang melaksanakan suatu ide kreatifnya. knp bs begini? menurut saya saat ide kreatif mereka sedang dilaksanakan, mereka akan menjadi bersemangat dan itu akan memacu mereka agar ide tersebut bisa cepat terwujud. tapi kadang berlawanan dengan hal itu, orang kreatif mgkn terkadang diam saat mereka sedang serius memikirkan ide2 dan bahkan perlu istirahat untung menenangkan pikiran mereka.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.
orang yg kreatif memang kadang tidak diragukan lagi kecerdesannya, namun juga naif karena mungkin mereka berusaha mewujudkan sesuatu yg tdk terpikir oleh org lain dan bahkan tidak masuk akal tapi itu semua hanya karena keinginan mereka untuk membuat segalanya menjadi lbh mudah dan beda.

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.
seperti yg kita ketahui orang kreatif dapat menggabungkan beberapa unsur menjadi sesuatu yg baru. mereka dapat menggabungkan suatu unsur yg mgkn dianggap kekanak2an menjadi suatu hal yg dapat dipakai org2 untuk menjalankan suatu sistem yg teratur. mereka memakai imajinasinya yg terkadang dipandang org lain sebagai hal yg absurd dan tdk terpikirkan dan kadang itulah yg kelak menjadi penemuan yg dielu-elukan.

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.
orang-orang yang kreatif mampu mengubah imajinasi dan fantasi mereka menjadi sesuatu yg nyata. orang dapat berimanjinasi sesuka mereka, tetapi hanya org kreatif yg mampu mengubahnya menjadi sesuatu yg bisa diakui dalam kehidupan nyata sehari2

5. Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.
mereka bisa menjadi sangat extrovert saat ingin mengungkapkan apa yg ada dalam benak mereka namun bisa sangat introvert saat mereka tidak ingin diganggu dan sedang berpikir

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.
inilah yg seharusnya dimiliki oleh semua org. org kreatif adalah seorang yang rendah hati dan tidak menyombongkan apa yg bukan kreasinya namun harus bangga jika berhasil menciptakan sesuatu yg membantu banyak orang

7.Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.
orang kreatif tidak membedakan gender, bagi mereka selama dapat menerima dan menghargai mereka baik pria ataupun wanita sama saja

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.
mereka sering disebut rebel karena tidak begitu saja menerima hal yg sudah berjalan dengan normal tapi mereka konservatif di saat yg bersaman karena tidak mengikuti setiap trend baru yg muncul

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.
orang kreatif sangat berdedikasi dalam pekerjaannya karena jika tidak tentu saja mereka tidak akan mampu berkreasi dan melakukan inovasi namun mereka jg melihatnya secara objektif agar bisa melakukan perubahan terhadap hal itu sewaktu-waktu

10. Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.
orang-orang kreatif yang saya kenal sudah merasakan banyak penderitaan dan melihat hal2 jelek yg ada di dunia ini, mereka sensitif terhadap beberapa hal tetapi jg gampang merasakan euforia jika berada dalam lingkungan yg nyaman


well, in this post you’ll gonna see me tryin to scamper my favourite cellphone brand : NOKIA. even though im not using one now, i always like it because its very user friendly.

firstly, SCAMPER is an acronym which stands for :

*Substitute = Imagine if nokia use RIM technology, instead of blackberry messenger we’ll have nokia messenger or nokia chat or whatever the nokia guy wants to call it

*Combine = i wanna combine the user friendly tech that nokia have with all the advantage that blackberry have

*Adapt = despite all the good things, nokia doesnt increase the price of its product, that is what i call adapt because this is gonna be a trend and everyone surely wanna get a piece of it

*Modify = modify the software so it can be upgrade automatically just like blackberry or a mac

*Put to other uses = how about makin it useful for mp3 player and i didnt mean just so it can keep hundred songs, the speaker quality should be as good as an ipod too

*Eliminate = eliminate the voice command, i dont think many people use it

*Reverse = well this one is pretty hard, but i think that the messenger feature should work on any brand not for nokia only. but only nokia have it

i must say the most innovative thing man can create is internet. there are so many reason why i say this. well there is some pro and contra for my opinion but i’ll explain it later on. first, let me tell you what is internet. The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private and public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by a broad array of electronic and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a vast array of information resources and services, most notably the inter-linked hypertextdocuments of the World Wide Web (WWW) and the infrastructure to support electronic mail.

well thats the definition that everyone can search in google. wait, google? thats the 2nd most innovative thing that i personally call : the greatest thing on internet, but i’m not talking about google here. for me internet is a place, did i said place? yea for me its a place where i could find anything. and of course i don’t  mean to exaggerate. nowadays, people use internet for everything that you can imagine. searching for information, for references, searching for things to buy, listening to a song or watching a video, reading an e-book. internet is thing that you can make money of. for example, say you have a laptop or car that you want to sale. in Indonesia, we have a website that contain all of the people that want to buy sale or trade things like that. i must say i’m one of them, i have two persian cats and i bought them becouse of this website.

and of course you have heard about facebook, twitter, plurk, myspace, blog and etc. internet provides all that thing, people could connect with his/her long lost bestfriend, family that lives in other country. people could pour his feeling and let others know, a musician that wants other people to hear the music they making could just post it on a website.Rihanna for instant, she did her concert and promote her new album in the internet and she is doin it live so others could stream it.

ow and i forget, we also can see movie schedule, reading the news and other things that can keep us informed about whats happenin in this world. but from many good things that i already said about internet, it also have bad sides. the information that you can get is easy, and sometimes its too easy. children can see things that they shouldn’t see, piracy could developed, hackers can hack someone credit card and use it as they please. but of course, i believe that the invention of internet start with hope to make life a little bit more simple.
