Be open to new ideas

If we want to be more creative, we have to open ourselves up to more new experiences.

Evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller says that regardless of where we are on that spectrum, those less open than us seem boring, dull, conventional, and conformist, whereas the more open seem eccentric bizarre, disruptive, threatening, or even psychotic.

If we think everyone around us is downright boring, then we’re relatively open to new ideas. Congratulations.
