Adobe Test: What creative type are you? #Mycreativetype

Adobe has a site to test what creative type you are, and it's not like your regular old personality tests. For one thing, it looks amazing. It's also a little more faceted than you might expect. The colourful test site is created by Anyways.co.

"The Creative Types test is an exploration of the many faces of the creative personality. Based in psychology research, the test assesses your basic habits and tendencies—how you think, how you act, how you see the world—to help you better understand who you are as a creative. Answer these 15 questions and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of your motivations, plus insight into how to maximize your natural gifts and face your challenges."

Interspersed between the questions are cool animations/idents created by set designers Isabel + Helen shot by Brendan Baker and Daniel Evans, while at the end of your test you will be served a neat 3D figure created by carachter designer Anton Hjertstedt. Web design was handled by Daniel Powell. All copy was written by Carolyn Gregoire, who also designed the test.


I took the test and discovered that I am... The Dreamer. "You’re deeply emotional and intuitive, with a vivid imagination—the quintessential idealist and romantic." Aw man, don't let the world know I'm a hopeless idealist romantic that's a secret! 

The dreamers untapped potential is: Using dreams to fuel real-world action

As much as I enjoyed taking the test, Ebae Kim, creative director at Tiny Spirit, made a stripped version that is a lot of fun and perhaps more accurate. "The Dreamer - just like the visionary but doesn't try to convince others to do it for them" really hit home. I always say if you can't do it yourself, it will never get done.

You're the "first" creative type. Gotcha.
