Creativity vs shizotypal personality

Creativity depends on many factors cluding adequate IQ, time, social condition, personality ects.

Creativity needs to think out of box or beyound common sence. Extreme form of uncoventional idea or thought is clinically defined as delution or hallucination, which are the signs of schinzophrenia. However, mild form of it without disruption of normal social life is called schizotypal personality or paranoia.

My deduction: Creativity needs schizotypal personality.

The people or culture with greatest creativity might have higher incidences or prevalence of schizophrenia in the population.

Self-esteem vs achievement

Threshold for self-esteem is different among people. People with low threshold are often more confident and low achievers. People with high threshold are often depressed and end up as high achievers because nothing will make them happy until they conquer the world.

People with low selfesteem often set themself for higher standard to be happy.

Who dares to chanllenge conventional view or genius could become anothergenius.
