Are creative thinkers truly fearless people? In most cases, yes! They aren’t deterred by public opinion and they aren’t scared of flouting convention. Convention is a stifler. It kills creativity and no creative person can function in a restrictive environment. As a creative thinker you have to be willing to kick over the traces. To be able to challenge well-established boundaries you cannot concern yourself with what other people think. To break new ground you have to be able to think freely. And to create new ideas without worrying about maintaining the old conventions you have to be fearless.
