  • 1. THE PERSONALITY OF DESIGNFriday, April 20, 2012
  • 2. Our dependence on technology to share and cooperate is radically changing the traditional framework of how we develop and promote creative solutions. In the mid-20th century, creative services were often provided by artists working in isolation who produced works of beauty and pragmatism without the friction of a group atmosphere. Today’s creative business model overvalues highly visible, technology interdependent assertive and celebrity-like behavior, thus marginalizing more autonomous thinkers. This thesis presents the hypothesis that a re- invented model for the “introvert” will lead to a nonconformist, innovative, resonating and therefore more successful designer ideal.Friday, April 20, 2012

  • 6. “We want to attract creative people,” the director of human resources at a major media company told me. When I asked what she meant by “creative, she answered without missing a beat. “You have to be outgoing, fun and jazzed up to work here.” WHAT ARE WE LOSING?Friday, April 20, 2012

  • 9. STAN BRACKAGE FILM MAKER / ARTIST INTROVERT The artist in the studio lives a life of intense isolation, yet one which by its very nature produces work that resonates with broader meaning and relevance. By conjecture, this kind of work benefits immeasurably from the imposed solace of the studio, an environment that begets its own fierce concentration.

  • 14. Isolationists: requires less stimulation to do more do not rely on instant gratification (reward limits creativity) not affected by peer pressure, not people pleasers process environment unusually deeply (physical and emotional) highly empathetic more careful, digest information thoroughly sensitive work more accurately as leaders, more likely to let other peoples do what they do best and work aloneFriday, April 20, 2012

  • 16. Personality defines us as much as gender or race. We are living in a time of an idealized, unfair perception of what a creative thinker should be.Friday, April 20, 2012
