Creative vs Destructive: which type are you?

  1. The "Destructive"

    This type of persona requires external stimuli to feel alive. He is emotionally dead and without the world of objects and other people his life is nothing. He is deeply addicted to the stimuli which fills his psychic abyss. He cannot be still or alone. He is a shell addicted to fashion, conforming to be accepted. In his world image and appearance are everything. His experiences are banal and casual. He performs and mimics, but abuses trust, sexuality and beauty. What he cannot own or control he fears. He seeks a cause and master to avoid responsibility. If his desires are thwarted he becomes depressed, suicidal and aggressive. He is ambitious, competitive, and pathologically reliant upon approval. He is expert at manipulation and is hypocritical and immoral. Other people, especially those with inherent power and creativity, are his prey. He feels a sense of greatness from their loss or ruin. He is the implacable enemy of true creativity, independence and selfhood. Nothing is scared to him except his image, success, possessions and catalog of destruction.


    The Creative


    The "Creative" man is alive from within and is inner-directed. He does not require external stimuli to feel alive, and so his relationship to the world is healthy, deep and real. He has the best of both worlds. He has a strong sense of selfhood, and is autonomous and independent in the true sense. He is a rebel. He does not cling to things or to other people for fulfilment because he is not inherently empty. His relationships are not based on power dynamics. He is present and whole and open to change and to the future. He sees problems as challenges, and has strong boundaries. He does not manipulate and deceive. He envies no one and takes charge of his own destiny. He knows that consciousness changes reality. His happiness and his suffering are sacred to him. He does not censor himself or care what others do, say, or think. Evil is, for him, the absence of autonomy and selfhood. He leads and does not follow. He is in contact with the true source of life which exists and flows from within his being. His life-force is his own. His mutable and reinvents himself every day. He is ever growing.
