You might know some extremely creative people who are anything but humble about their talents — the full-of-himself actor, the self-important artist, the vain musician, or the pompous writer. A new study reveals there may be a kernel of truth to these cultural stereotypes.
So, what you’re saying is, people who RESEARCH FOR A LIVING are labeling creative people as arrogant? Maybe it’s time for them to come out of their shell and meet some people instead of crunching numbers all day.
Sorry… did I just come off as a jerk?
the most arrogant person i know is a skateboarder. and another skateboarder. and a banker. a really bad photographer/designer from school (i’ll give the study that one—and it can have him). another skater/bum. two more artists (have ‘em). this one kid…call him a student since i don’t know what he was studying (not art) and he just worked some student position. and let me tell you about how the vast majority of people i know are creative people.
this is one of the reasons I typically cant stand art students.. funny thing is I am an art student..

And just like James, I’ll be drinking Irish tonight and the memory of his last work week will be gone forever Evelyn I’m not coming home tonight! If we’re never together If I’m never back again Well I swear to God that I’ll love you forever
