Creative individuals are more likely to be arrogant, good liars, distrustful, dishonest and maybe just a little crazy
In other words distrust breeds a sort of ‘what-if’ mindset: exactly the sort of mindset associated with creativity.
Distrust may also breed flexibility in thinking. Instead of taking things at face value, people with suspicious minds try to see things from different angles. That’s yet another marker of creativity
Highly creative people told more and better lies than those who were less creative.
Creativity was more closely associated with dishonesty than intelligence
when it comes specifically to crime, criminals are creative. After all, it is their job
maybe the really creative criminals are just too creative to get caught
