Book Description

Many creative people share an enthusiasm for expressing multiple talents and passions, often from a very young age. Creativity researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi has said, “If there is one word that makes creative people different from others, it is the word complexity. Instead of being an individual, they are a multitude.”

This book is an overview of some of the key aspects of personality and inner life that affect how multi-talented people make use of that complexity, with references to creativity research, plus quotes by psychologists, creativity coaches and personal development leaders, as well as perspectives by actors, painters, novelists, musicians and other creative people.

Also included are many links to other resources such as articles, books, videos and websites, which can help you more deeply explore and realize your own multiple creative interests and talents.

Editorial Reviews


"Packed full of insights and resources for the creative life, this book offers new ways to thrive as a creative person. I highly recommend it as a resource for anyone who wants to understand the psychology behind our creative drive."
- Cynthia Morris, Writing and creativity coach

"Part book about creativity, part compendium of useful tidbits, quotations and research, and part annotated bibliography, this is a wildly useful and highly entertaining resource."
- Stephanie S. Tolan, fiction writer and consultant on the needs of the gifted.

"The book is kaleidoscopical, just like the subject he describes."
- Willem Kuipers, counselor for extra intelligent people; author of the book Enjoying the Gift of Being Uncommon.

"Douglas Eby does an extraordinary job of integrating complex characteristics into a complete overview of the multitalented personality."
- Lisa A. Riley, MA, LMFT, Creativity coach, Family Therapist
