sepuluh paradoks orang kreatip

15/12/2009 at 06:08 (Uncategorized)

Dear Mr. AN our lecturer. I tried and tried to find another version of 10 paradoxes of Creative people besides Mihaly Cziszentmihalyi version, but unfortunately I cant find it -______- so i will just use them anyway, better than nothing 🙂 So here we go, i will state the paradoxes first, and will come up with the explanation and interpretation later.

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

Creative people indeed have a lot of physical energy, but this doesn’t mean that they are a hyperactive one. Creative people can work for a very long hour in a full concentration and they are quiet at work. They are focusing on their work, thinking about the creative ideas which may appear to other people as their quiet side. However this quiet side of the creative people is often found because when they are quiet, it is because they are searching for a creative idea. Creative people also like to rest, this is happened when they creative brain is not needed to work. They rest to gain more energy that is going to be used to search for another creative idea.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.

Creative people are indeed a very smart people. This can be seen by the creative idea that they generated using their creative brain. Their idea is very creative and sometimes original that show how smart they are. They can think about something creative that no ordinary people can come up with that idea. However creative people also a naïve person. Creative people sometimes show their childish side when they are talking or saying something. This can be seen by when they are explaining their creative idea, sometimes they explain it using their childish side, looks like a happy little child that has just found some new toys.

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.

Creative people indeed have a playfulness attitude and carefree air. However even tough creative people seems like a people who like to play and unserious, they are actually very serious people. Creative people are very focus on their job; they can stand to work in a long time than anybody else to finish their creative work. A lot of creative and professional people like to stay till midnight or sometimes not sleep to finish their creative masterpiece. Creative people are very responsible despite their playfulness and carefree attitude that affect them.

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.

Creative people have a broad mind full of imagination and fantasy. Creative people indeed need a great imagination that somehow was far beyond the current reality or presents. This imagination and fantasy is the one who will make creative people produce such a great artwork or creative masterpiece. Great artwork or masterpiece is sometimes looks abstract in our mind; however this abstract artwork or masterpiece is the key to creating such a great masterpiece. Creative people sometimes go into their imagination and fantasy to wondering and search for a creative idea, then from that imagination and fantasy they created a new reality that is different than the current reality. However, no matter how strange the artwork is, sometimes, people will recognize no matter how strange it is, this is true and this is the reality.

5. Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.

Creative people can show the extrovert and introvert sides simultaneously. Creative people sometimes like to go in the crowd, interact with other people, showing and sharing their creative idea to other people. However, there is a time when they show their introvert side. This happened when they need to search for a creative idea, they tend to be quiet and observe their surroundings to look for a creative idea. Sometimes they also be quiet and go deep down into their imagination and fantasy.

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.

Creative people indeed are humble person but however they also have a pride inside themselves. They are humble because they realize that their achievement is because of a long and a hard work, also with a help of luck, which can make them become famous and outstanding than other people. Other reason is because creative people is so focus on their future project, on the next challenge that await them, the next masterpiece that is already on top of their mind and wait to be done that they don’t care about how famous and outstanding they are. However, creative people do have pride because they know that they have create such a great artwork, a masterpiece, that makes them feels pride inside their heart.

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.

Creative people, both male and female can have an ability to have the strength of the gender beside their own gender. This is like the ability to be sensitive like a women, or the ability to be strong and tough like a man. Creative people also can be seen acting like the opposite gender of their own gender. There are male creative person that act somehow like a women, and also there are a women who act sometimes like a man.

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.

Creative people need to be rebellious and conservative at the same time. This is because creative people need to be rebellious to generate some change that can help in regenerating some creative idea. However, creative people are also conservative, this is because creative people creating change in regard to the previous or recent culture.

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.

Creative people are very passionate and focus on their work. They have a very big passion toward their work that can be seen that they wanted to stay up to late night to finish their masterpiece. However creative people are also objective regarding their work. They accept criticism and response in order to improve their masterpiece.

10.Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.

The openness and the sensitivity of creative people often make them feel suffering and pain. This is because sometimes their masterpiece that is resulting from a great deal of hard work and time invite hard criticism or bad mouth from other people. This can also because the hard work they have done that involves number of years isn’t recognized or nobody care. However there is also a great deal of enjoyment for the creative person in the process of making the masterpiece.

Lost in Space

21/10/2009 at 02:05 (Uncategorized)

Sometimes I get tired of this me first attitude
You are the one thing that keeps me smiling
Thats why Im always wishing hard for you

cause your life shines so bright
I dont feel no solitude
You are my first star at night
Id be lost in space without you

And Ill never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

Feels just so fine
When we touch the sky me and you
This is my idea of heaven
Why cant it always be so good

But its alright, I know youre out there
Doing what youve gotta do
You are my soul satellite
Id be lost in space without you

And Ill never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

And Ill never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

And Ill never lose my faith in you
And Ill never lose my faith in you

significado de un nombre de

21/10/2009 at 01:57 (Uncategorized)

doh nama nama nama…

entry terakhir yang gw bikin karena paling susah.. hahaa bodo amat nama sendiri kaga tau artinya hehee. setelah melihat beberapa *sebenernya cuma 2* blog temen gw yaitu si grimmjaw dan polar. dua2 nya menunjukan tanda ketidak wajaran dalam mengartikan nama mereka.. orang disuruhnya intrepret your name creatively *well this tasks is kinda absurd =p* bukan nya narcissly *baca: polar* hadeuh kalo si Grimmjaw sih masih wajar, cuma sedikit kurang kreatip aja gitu huhahaaah..

so untuk memulai nya dengan kreatif, kita pake perusahaan search engine paling kreatif sedunia *baca blog sebelumnya dulu makanya* which is Goooooogle. nyahaha

lah koq nyari di internet sih, mikir dong!!? lah biarin, orang mau jadi kreatif caranya banyak, kalo otak sendiri mentok kenapa ga cari sumber laen *nyehehe*

salah satu hasil yang gw dapet yaitu hasil dari http://www.paulsadowski.com. well you can punch your name if you want to know your name meaning too 😀 . di situs ini, dia menginterpret nama pake numerology. jadi dia akan menghitung jumlah huruf di nama lu, jumlah vokal dan konsonan di nama lu dan jumlah angka nya akan di interpret sama dia.. ribet yak gw ngejelasinnya. langsung aja deh tes sndiri2..

kalo gw punya kurang lebih kaya gini>>>

“You entered: Reinaldo

There are 8 letters in your name.
Those 8 letters total to 42
There are 4 vowels and 4 consonants in your name.

Your number is: 6

The characteristics of #6 are: Responsibility, protection, nurturing, community, balance, sympathy.

The expression or destiny for #6:
The number 6 Expression provides you a truly outstanding sense of responsibility, love, and balance. The 6 is helpful and ever conscientious, making you quite capable of rectifying and balancing any sort of inharmonious situation. You are a person very much inclined to give help and comfort to those in need. You have a natural penchant for working with the old, the young, the sick, or the underprivileged. Although you may have considerable creative and artistic talents, the chances are that you will devote yourself to an occupation that shows concern for the betterment of the community.

The positive side of the number 6 suggests that you are very loving, friendly, and appreciative of others. You have a depth of understanding that produces much sympathetic, kindness, and generosity. The qualities of the 6 make the finest and most concerned parent and one often deeply involved in domestic activities. Openness and honesty is apparent in your approach to all relationships.

If there is an excess of the number 6 in your makeup, you may exhibit some of the negative traits associated with this number. There may be a tendency for you to be too exacting and demanding of yourself. In this regard, you may at times sacrifice yourself (or your loved ones) for the welfare of others. In some cases, the over zealous 6 has difficulty distinguishing helping from interfering. You may have difficulty expressing your own individuality, because of involvement with responsibilities and causes. Like all with the Expression of the number 6, it’s quite likely that you worry much too much.

Your Soul Urge number is: 3

A Soul Urge number of 3 means:
With the Soul Urge number 3 your desire in life is personal expression, and generally enjoying life to its fullest. You want to participate in an active social life and enjoy a large circle of friends. You want to be in the limelight, expressing your artistic or intellectual talents. Word skills may be your thing; speaking, writing, acting, singing. In a positive sense, the 3 energy is friendly, outgoing and always very social.

You have a decidedly upbeat attitude that is rarely discouraged; a good mental and emotional balance.

The 3 Soul Urge gives intuitive insight, thus, very high creative and inspirational tendencies. The truly outstanding trait shown by the 3 Soul Urge is that of self-expression, regardless of the field of endeavor.

On the negative side, you may at times become too easygoing and too optimistic, tending to scatter forces and accomplish very little. Often, the excessive 3 energy produces non-stop talkers. Everyone has faults, but the 3 soul urge doesn’t appreciate having these pointed out.

Your Inner Dream number is: 3

An Inner Dream number of 3 means:
You dream of artistic expression; writing, painting, music. You would seek to more freely express your inner feeling and obtain more enjoyment from life. You also dream of being more popular, likable, and appreciated.”

isn’t it good? damn i thought so 😀

Creative Thingy

19/10/2009 at 17:29 (Uncategorized)

kenapa harus kreatif dalam hidup? hmm banyak jawaban buat yang satu ini

orang menjadi kreatif karena ingin berbeda dari orang lain

orang menjadi kreatif karena ingin “dilirik” orang lain

orang menjadi kreatif karena memang orang tersebut punya kemampuan lebih

orang menjadi kreatif karena tuntutan pekerjaan?

orang menjadi kreatif karena cara berpikirnya berbeda dari orang lain

lah terus apa tujuannya orang jadi kreatif?

orang kreatif nggak punya “boundaries” di pikirannya, kaya orang lain pada umumnya. so sometimes they bend the reality, cross the logic and might behave strangely

tapi pastinya orang kreatif punya cara berpikirnya sendiri, bahkan kadang2 bisa aja orang yang kreatif itu dianggap nggak waras sama temen2 disekitarnya saking anehnya sudut pandang si orang kreatif ini.

akan tetapi,, huehuee.. kalo sampe ide kreatif seseorang ini bisa diterima banyak orang, dan orang lain highly appreciate si ide kreatifnya ini, maka dia bisa jual idenya dengan sangat mahal.

sebenernya banyak contoh orang yang kreatif. bahkan hampir setiap alat yang kita gunakan saat ini ada karena hasil pemikiran kreatif orang2 jaman dulu. ambil salah satu contoh yaitu telepon, jaman dulu orang cuma bisa komunikasi jarak jauh pake surat, trus berevolusi jadi sandi morse, trus jadi telegram. bzzz bayangin aja kalo kita sampe jaman sekarang masih pake sandi morse. apalah jadinya? masa kita musti belajar bahasa sandinya dulu baru ngerti apa isi pesennya? *kuno abiss*

so all the credits to the founder of telephone , Sir Alex… ets hampir gw salah nulis kan ehehe untung googling dulu. kalo selama ini lu orang taunya penemu telepon itu si alexander grahambell, then you’re totally mistaken.. penemu telepon yang sebenarnya adalah Antonio Meucci, seorang warga Italia.. buat selengkapnya klik disini

http://www.detikinet.com/read/2007/12/29/175846/872646/398/siapa-penemu-telepon-pastinya-bukan-graham-bell

beuh buset2.. barusan aja internetnya ngedrop pas lagi nulis,, shock gw… untung kaga ilang ni tulisan, kalo ngga nangis darah deh *heheheeee* lebay

FYI gw nulis blog sambil maen toss the turtle, game simple but addictives! hahaa

kalo perusahaan yang paling kreatif menurut gw itu google. why google why?

karena setau gw, google menerapkan sistem kerja unik yang lain daripada yang lain. bisa dilihat di websitenya google, kalo bentuk kantornya lebih mirip playground dibanding tempat kerja,  this is what i call breaking boundaries and bending the rule. siapa yang peduli sama formalitas di jaman kaya gini, dimana kebanyakan orang lebih mentingin output dan income yang besar. menurut pendapat gw,ruangan kerja yang ‘Unique’ ini merupakan salah satu motivational tools yang diciptakan oleh google untuk menstimulus employees nya untuk lebih ‘open’ to the idea *gw ga dapet kata2 yang pas buat ini*

udah ah cape@.@

In this website they told people about their creative design and sometimes the process. They want to “Bringing new ideas to life” which is an essential part of what they do. From here we can conclude that in reaching the realization of the idea they have to also do the trial and error because it was an idea that no one has ever thinking about. Sometimes the idea is not successful, just only a prototype, a failure project, and all. But that process is what helping them in making some creative design that can impact the world. This blog is also a place for a conversation to help them hear the opinion of other people and help them improve the products or design.

ARRGHH!!

yeah BB gw rusak hari ini… jadi apa yang paling enak buat dilakukan ketika BB *baca: mainan* lagi rusak

yaitu bikin TUGAS!! waaaaaaa

jadi setelah sekian lama blog ini dibuat dan ditelantarkan begitu saja sama si pembuatnya

yang tidak lain dan tidak bukan adalahh gw sendiri *bzzzz*

akhirnya gw memutuskan untuk lagi lagi menulis di blog ini, lebih tepatnya karena gw udah ngutang buanyaaaaaak banget postingan blog buat pak AN our lecturer.. ehehe maap ya pak, janji dah hari ini 3 utang post blog ini dibayar lunas ……….

tapi sebelon lanjut ke postingan yang baru soal tugas2 dari pak AN, mendingan bahas dulu aja kenapa BB gw rusak hari ini… gak penting sih, tapi yaudalah secara namanya juga basa basi dan mumpung gw lagi punya cerita buat dipaparin di sini. hehehh

jadi ceritanya hari ini gw mulai dengan pergi ke rumah si polar, gara gara nya dia bilang kalo tugas DMN yang gw buat bareng dia kemaren itu SALAH!! yaudah apa boleh buat sebagai siswa teladan yang rajin mengerjakan tugas tugasnya *bzzz* pergilah gw bertandang ke rumah temen gw nyang satu ini,

several hours later (mending di skip bagian gw ngerjain tugasnya soalnya suck abis buat diceritain) tibalah saatnya gw pulang ke kosan gw karena tugasnya udah beres,,  there we go

setibanya di kosan gw.. dengan gagah gw buka pintu mobil gw dan ngambil tas yang isinya laptop, trus nggak lupa dan nggak mungkin lupa ngecek si BB kesayangan gw..

halah…..

….

pas gw tarik dari holsternya *baca: sarungnya* si bb gw menunjukan tampilan yang ngga wajar… putih dan banyak garis2 mejikuhibiniu gitu di samping sebelah kanan layarnya, lebih tepatnya kaya siaran TV error gitu heheee

gw melongo

melongo

melongo

.

.

.

hampir sejam melongo *ya kali lama amat* gw mencoba berpikir positif kalo yaaaaaa paling BB gw lagi error minta di restart. so, yaudah gw cabut batrenya dan gw pasang lagi…

trus gw tetep ngeliat tampilan yang sama di layar BB gw,

dan gw melongo lagi

melongo

melongo

bzzz ternyata gw sadar kalo ada retakan di LCD nya , lebih tepatnya di ujung kanan atas layarnya.

thus, end the tales of the broken blackberry.

LOH trus mana cerita BB rusaknya?

sejujurnya gw sendiri juga nggak tau tuh kenapa si BB gw bisa rusak >> *author bodoh*

cuma mungkin ada beberapa possibilities, nyehehe. biar jijik gw selipin bahasa inggris dikit2 gpp laa

1. di kantong celana gw itu, ada 2 HP. satu si BB satunya lagi si esia

nah mungkin… mungkin loh ya, pas gw nyetir dari rumah polar balik ke kos2an gw tuh si BB nya keteken gitu di kantong gw sama si hp esia gw.. tapi apa mungkin keteken gitu trus jadi pecah LCD nya?

ummm ya gw gak tau, tapi toh mungkin mungkin aja.. itu buktinya pecah LCD BB gw   T-T

2. si BB kebanting dan pecahlah LCDnya

hmmm gw nggak tau kebanting dimana, masa iya gw yang banting2 sendiri.. sayang kali mending disumbangin ke siapaa gitu..

3. BB nya buatan cina, trus gw dikasih LCD murahan dan idupnya cuma 3 bulan

hahahaha ini sih gw ngarang, mana gw tau tuh BB buatan Cina India ataupun Indonesia.. *bzzzz*

tapi ini paling mungkin terjadi diantara nomer 1 sama nomer 2,,

hhhh entahlah, yaudah intinya sekarang BB gw mati menunggu di jual, ganti baru, ataupun di garansi.. yang jelas dia gak bisa sembuh sendiri aja.. nyeheheee
