What Destroys Your Creativity?
Posted 03 September 2005 - 01:04 PM
Anyway, during the time i was looking for a job after graduation i would get very bored and start to play more games than i should. I found that my creativity was going downhill just constantly pushing buttons and trying to beat the game. So instead i quit that, and i havent used my Xbox for months. Since then my creativity has been flowing again and now i have a job I am pretty much thinking creativly the whole day (and night).
So what do you think stunts your creativity?
For me it's computer games and other people's negativity, ignorance and stupidity.

One more thing, looking at too much "inspiration" as people would put it. Only gives you all kinds of stuff to subconciously copy.

a destructive lifestyle, even if you do create something technically advanced that is asthetic and erganomic and performs its function perfectly it could still be a product of destruction and argueably not creative at all like guns which kill people and beatifull smoking pipes which help give people cancer!
disruptive working environments i always need to put as much concentration in as posible its far too easy to get pissed off or distracted by something and do nothing!!

Going out there and experiencing whats out there gets my creativity flowing again, usually I go into the middle of nowhere for a weekend and this gets me back on track.

Loss of focus b/c of poor game-plan

Hm.. silence is a real killer for me at times.

and i agree with the copy method. Looking at too many creative product or object can over kill your own concept and ideas.

I lose steam when I get done exploring an idea that I thought had a lot of merit, but in the end it really didn't. I hate that feeling when you realize that your best idea really won't work out at all and all the time you spent trying to salvage it doesn't matter either. Thats a real bummer sometimes.

Conventions. Sometimes they are good, mostly just annoying and restricting.
What gets me going however. . .
A really stunning piece of design, coffee, texting people, surfing the web, driving round town and looking at whats out there. Tried and true method i have is attending boring lectures and sitting there designing instead. Brain is so flippn bored it starts popping out ideas all ovr the place.
