Creativity is associated with such personality characteristics as independence of judgment, preference for complexity, psychological androgyny, and tolerance for ambiguity, and more generally with openness to experience.
A map of this territory helps. This is where the Transformative Climate Advocacy program comes in using psychology and the distinct stages of adult development that we can move through.
However, we understand maps best when we walk through the landscapes. As we physically experience and feel what is around us, using the map and traveling with it, we get a little lost and found too. Applying and feeling are as important as logical understanding.
Adult developmental stages can be liberating. Our abilities to see and coordinate between seemingly opposing perspectives shift. Our thinking-patterns change and so does the way we understand the world around us. We integrate valuing collective and individual interiors—the shared cultural norms around us that shape so many of our own and other individual’s thinking-patterns—with objective measures such as climate change metrics and personal actions.
In the short video (10 mins, right/below here>) Abigail Lynam and I touch on these shifts.
