Triumphant renewal. Vital energy. Creativity is as reliable as the sun. Its ceaseless power streams through barriers to awaken seed potentials; once sprouted, they grow with unique purpose and splendor. All bask in its warmth. The sun gathers and spreads the forces of the universe – the creative energy that keeps us alive. Birth, transformation, and rebirth. Each new day. Creativity, like the sun, is ever present. And so it is also in those around you.

An interest stirs. New tasks await. The impetus for change has begun. Take time now to challenge your perceptions and embrace a new view. Challenge yourself to become aware of where your ‘hands are tied’ and how to free them. Liberate your creative energies. Discover the developed and undeveloped parts of your personality. The decisions you make are at stake. Choose to make good ones. Use your creative potential.

Creativity and Personality Type prepares you for your future. It reveals how your pattern of personality naturally translates and uses creative energies. You will learn your essential energy pattern, how to shift your energies to open yourself to new perspectives, and how to use helpful tools to deliberately inspire the release of creativity in others as well as yourself.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

from "Exploring Creativity"...
Creativity is the spark of life, the vitality that stirs desires to improve upon and change the status quo-meaningfully, responsibly, wisely, and with impact.

from "Discovering Your Creative Voice"...
Knowing about different voices helps us to alleviate the immediate knee-jerk blaming that occurs when we don't get what we want. It shifts the focus away from "things happen to me" toward the more progressive "I make things happen,"...

from "Jung's Theory of Psychological Type"...
The patterns of the preferences, or voices, are really "where it's at," creatively and holistically speaking. Why? Because we all perceive something and we all make decisions about what we perceive.

from "Idea-Generating Setup"...
The bottom line to a successful idea-generating process is to honor the voices in the room and to use different thinking styles. That's right, intermix the different temperament patterns as well as divergent perceiving and convergent judging, focuses, and activities.
