What is Your Creative Type?

Adobe’s Creative Types test is a personality test like no other that I’ve seen. If you enjoy doing a little introspection with tools like Strengthsfinder, Meyers-Briggs, or Enneagram, you will probably like this one even more. The creators took the time to make the assessment visually unusual and appealing so that it manages to keep your attention even as it begins to load the next question.

I tend to view these types of analyses as somewhat akin to horoscopes. I feel like you could give me any set of results and I would probably see myself somewhere in the description, even without responding to any questions. That’s because people are complex and difficult to categorize, as we often evolve or modify our personalities to suit different situations. However it is always intriguing to see the depth of my character succinctly described in a few paragraphs. (It’s also interesting to note that whenever I share these tests with my family, my husband and daughter always end up with the same exact results as each other — never the same as mine.)

Question from Adobe Creative Types Test

I’m sharing this link today because I’m guessing that many of my readers are not quite ready to plan for a new school year, and the Adobe Creative Types Test is a fun but thought-provoking way to spend your time as well as a great discussion-starter with family and friends. The questions are not too intrusive or complex, and at the end of a few minutes, you will discover which one of the eight types your responses most represent: The Artist, The Thinker, The Adventurer, The Maker, The Producer, The Dreamer, The Innovator, or the Visionary. You can also download a PDF that details your type and recommends the best creative type with which you should collaborate.

For a little bit of background about how this test was created, you may want to read this article by Carolyn Gregoire, who is also one of the creators.

I will admit that I was surprised by my result, and I wonder if any of you can guess in the comments which one it is. If you are a regular reader, maybe you know me better than I know myself! I’d love to hear your results and your thoughts about the test.

  1. I would guess you were the maker. I came up as a dreamer, which looking at the choices I kind of agree with. Some of them I can say I’m definitely not. Couple of the questions I clicked the answer and then I changed my mind. Thank you for sharing. It was fun!

    1. My daughter and husband both got Dreamer as a result, which works out well since it states they should look for Innovators like me to collaborate with! I can see either category for you!
