Schizophrenie und Kreativität are one

Dass Kreativität tatsächlich nachweisbare Gemeinsamkeiten (nämlich eine ganz bestimmte Genmutation) mit Geisteskrankheiten (speziell Schizophrenie) hat, bloggte ich hier schon öfter, jetzt gibt es ein paar (wenige) neue Erkenntnisse über die psychologischen Gemeinsamkeiten von Kreativen und Irren. (Wenn man das Thema bereits kennt, kann man die ersten paar Absätze im Artikel der BBC überspringen).

"Creativity is uncomfortable. It is their dissatisfaction with the present that drives them on to make changes.

"Creative people, like those with psychotic illnesses, tend to see the world differently to most. It's like looking at a shattered mirror. They see the world in a fractured way.

"There is no sense of conventional limitations and you can see this in their work. Take Salvador Dali, for example. He certainly saw the world differently and behaved in a way that some people perceived as very odd." […]

"Creativity is certainly about not being constrained by rules or accepting the restrictions that society places on us. Of course the more people break the rules, the more likely they are to be perceived as 'mentally ill'."
