10 Paradoxes

Mihaly menyatakan ada 10 sikap paradok yang dimiliki oleh orang-orang Kreatif. Tolong analisis dan berikan komentar pribadi Anda terhadap 10 sikap paradok tersebut.

Berikut ini adalah 10 sikap paradok yang dinyatakan oleh Mihaly:

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.

5. Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.

10. Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.

From Creativity: The Work and Lives of 91 Eminent People, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, published by HarperCollins, 1996.

This is the creativity assignment from my lecture. Now, I’ll try to give my opinion about those theory.

Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives. Every creative persons are remarkable for their ability to adapt to almost any situation, and to make do with whatever is at hand to reach their goals. Most of the things that are interesting, important, and human are the result of creativity. When we’re creative, we feel we are living more fully than during the rest of life. What makes their personalities different from others is complexity. According to me, those 10 paradox is relative. I mean creativity is not like a math, it cannot be measured. Even talking about creativity can make a person more creative. Creativity allow our brains the room to stretch, to become flexible to take in new views and new ways of thinking is a critical skill. Perhaps the most important quality, the one that is most consistently present in all creative individuals, is the ability to enjoy the process of creation for its own sake. Last but not least, the creative personality can hold paradox without feeling conflicted.

Mengapa harus ada Tugas Akhir???

Banks’ Risk Management

Entah apa yang akan ku tulis tentang itu

di Tugas Akhir ku


Berilah aku secercah cahaya

Serta kemampuan

agar aku dapat menyelesaikan semua ini

Padamu aku berserah diri


I miss the part, when we were moving forward now
(On our way down)
But maybe someday, I’ll be something more than love
Just know I’ll never tell
And when you’re on your way down
(Through the clouds)
And you’re waiting for your body’s re-entry again

We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we’ve loved
We speak in different voices
Why can’t we say what we’re thinking of

I’m missing parts, now that you’ve told me everything
(On our way down)
And I was blessed and I’ve forgotten how to love
You said you’d never tell
And when you’re on your way down
(Through the clouds)
And you’re waiting for your body’s re-entry again

We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we’ve loved
We speak in different voices
Why can’t we say what we’re thinking of

Not even I will tell…

We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we’ve loved
We speak in different voices
We say these things to know they’re real.

We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we’ve loved
We speak in different voices
Why can’t we say what we’re thinking of

We speak in different voices
When fighting with the one’s we’ve loved
We speak in different voices
We speak in different voices

To know they’re real. Real.
I’ll never…

List no.1-five facts about me

1. My name is andra.

2. I am nineteen years old.

3. I collect stories and fantastic facts.

4. School of Business Management ITB is my university.

5. By the time you read this, I will probably be the king of the world.

But now, may be I will re-write the list..

1. Muhamad Diandra Putra.

Actually, my full name is Muhamad Diandra Putra. However when the “AKTA KELAHIRAN” was made, there is no Putra in my name..So, I prefer not to use Putra in my identity..I think Putra is not cool enough..hhaha kidding mam..

2. Last posting, I wrote that I am 19 years old.

Since last November 5, I become 20 years old..ohh my..im getting old..

3. I didn’t want to entry ITB.

But my parents and my beloved grandma always pushed me to get my bachelor degree in ITB. I hate numbers, math, calculus, physics, chemical, and techniques. It’s boring. It was lucky for me there is SBM. So I can give something to my parents and my grandma.

4. I am Sundanese.

I was born in Bandung. Both of my father and my mother also was born in Bandung. So I can speak bahasa sunda lil bit.

5. I love car.

Since I was child, my father always introduce me a lot about car. and Im interesting..I collect a lot of car model in my room..and If I see a beautiful car, it always makes me feel happy..I dont know why..

6. I love music.

It doesn’t matter what kind of music I listen, as long as it can make me feel comfort I must be love it.

7. I like black color.

Like I Gde Bagus Arya Sumarapati said “black represents elegant, mysterious, cool, and dark.” I think it seems like my personality. Eh gus, nama lo bener kan yah???

For every person in the whole world who really love to smoke, u better stop smoking right now or I’ll kick ur ass..ahhaha kidding..I really don’t care. U want to smoke, go ahead..

Now, its time to Diza, Patra, Inda, Atenk Wisnu, Nina Shanti, Nida, Rahen, Puput, Ridwan, Sri to show their 10 facts.

Another Creative Person

My recent post said that the most creative person is founder of LOMO..

However, there is another person who has creative mind and brilliant imagination. He is a founder and saler of Nasi Goreng Ngumpet. Nasi Goreng Ngumpet is a foodstall in Jalan Tubagus Raya (next to Barokah Minimarket). The founder who didn’t want to say his name, so we called his name as “Pak Asep”, was doing business in food market niche since early 1995. He usually sale Kwetiau Goreng, Pecel Ayam, Soto Ayam, Bihun Goreng, and Nasi Goreng. His business is successful enough until the competitors came in and compete with him in the same market. The competitors also sale the same product which is Nasi Goreng.

“Pak Asep” has to think hard in order to survive in this business. So, he tries to do some experimental to his foods. He modified the Nasi Goreng with beautiful exterior, unique shape, and changing its name into “Nasi Goreng Ngumpet”. I think it is very interesting and ear-catching. “Ngumpet” is in Bahasa Indonesia, which means hide. First time I heard these name, I thought what kind of Nasi Goreng is this. Then I came into his foodstall. I ordered Nasi Goreng Ngumpet and sweet ice tea. If we see the foods price, it is very cheap and reachable for every single person, especially students like us.

Then, Nasi Goreng Ngumpet came..

Don’t you think it is very creative??

I think it does..

It is very attractive and creative. The rice is hidden by egg and beautiful green salad and “kerupuk gurih”. So, that’s why it was called as “Nasi Goreng Ngumpet”.

This business is still running and attracting a lot of customers by now..

Very good job..
