Creativity is Attractive

There’s nothing as atractive as a starving artist. It’s always been a thing but now it’s official since science has stepped in a certified that indeed creative people are considered more attractive.

According to evolutionary psychologist Geoffry Miller, the display of creative prowess is analogous to the peacock’s tail as it helps to convey indicators of mental fitness. It gets better. Personality psychologist Gregory Feist extends this point by stating that there are two types of displayable creativity: applied/technological (science and engineering) and ornamental/aesthetic (art, music, and other aesthetic domains).

This bodes well for all of the engineers that frequent our space. Keep on being creative and who knows, maybe you’ll thank yourself for it. For more information on how creativity is attractive, check out this article on scientificamerican.com
