Get outta here! You mean to tell me that some of humankind’s creative geniuses were likely struggling with a mental element that separated them from the “normal” idiots around them? I won’t hear such a thing!
According to a recent study, writers, dancers, photographers, and other creative folk were more likely to be suffering from, susceptible to, or have a relative diagnosed with a mental disorder. However, doctors believe this could be the ticket to embracing some otherwise viewed as ‘morbid’ personality traits.
I, for one, could not be happier that the science docs are finally catching on to the apparently foreign concepts of acceptance and validation around mental ‘disabilities.’ They’re probably so taken with studying the genetics of creativity because they’re so blatantly deficient in it. Maybe tomorrow they can continue to play Captain Obvious and tell us to avoid sunburns by staying out of the sun. Know more.
