According to Handbook of Creativity by R. Sternberg, 45 years of systematic empiricle research reveals common personality traits of artists

1. Openness to experience, fantasy and imagination
2. Impulsivity and lack of conscientiousness
3. Anxiety, affective illness, and emotional sensititvity
4. Drive and ambition
5. Norm douting non-coformtiy, and independence
6. Hostility, aloofness, unfriendliness, and lack of warmth
7. Introversion

I scored 6 out of 7 - not bad for a wannabe arts adminstrator!
Anyone wanna guess which one caused me to miss a point?
