Seeing patterns around them, Creators seize the opportunity to interpret, solve, shape, innovate, and evolve. Their expressions are original and meaningful down to every last detail.
Writers, designers, architects, musicians, and even mechanical engineers – these cultures trust the creative process, knowing innovation is grounded in imagination. Their inventions help us find fluidity and order.
When the Creator slips into the shadow side, this Archetype can get stuck in a cycle of procrastination and perfectionism. They can pay so much attention to the “purity” of their inspiration that they neglect the real world context of the client or marketplace.
