Obviously, Creators have creativity and imagination in spades. They find inspiration in the most unlikely of places, and their inherent ability to find expression--be it through music, art, design, invention, poetry, literature, or photography--helps them think outside the box, using metaphors and abstracts to create something of lasting value.
Creators most like to see new ideas take shape, and the icing on top when these ideas are non-conformist. The love unique, unusual, clever, and visionary creations. They find joy in demonstrating their innovation, individuality, and freedom from societal constraints and convention. They get excited being able to express themselves, which includes finding and accepting themselves in relation to the external world.
A Creator will dedicate his or her life to finding beautiful aestheticism. Their talents are often the sole pursuit of a Creator, whose life can be dictated by applying learned and experienced artistic expression. They can be incredibly focused internally, and rejoice with a feeling of wholeness when they are able to prove reality outside of their minds.
The "Bad"The shadow side of the Creator might not be too hard to guess. Artistic types are often perfectionists and/or prima donnas. They might lose sight of the forest for focusing too much on the trees. As a result, they might come up with bad solutions that show an irresponsible side to themselves. They can also be outsiders, separated from average joes by their incredible talents.
Some Creators want to play God. Not in a grandiose way, believing themselves to be God, but in a destructive way, where they use their creativity to the exclusion of reality. Their art--or whatever medium they choose--can become like a god to them, and they might sacrifice anything and everything at its altar. In certain cases, some Creators can literally lose their mental stability and physical well-being in pursuit of their craft.
