CGI: You are a super creative who prefers lots of creative autonomy in your job and you’re okay with some unpredictability in your work.

You are a super creative. You see and recognize beauty and you know how to create it. Maybe you’re the person with the Instagram feed full of insanely beautiful photos. Maybe you have incredible taste in music, and everyone asks you make them playlists – including your own compositions. Maybe words are your forte and you write things that make people laugh, cry and see the world differently. Maybe you create visual art that will absolutely hang in museums someday, if it doesn’t already. Maybe you do all of this and more. The bottom line, is you are an artist.

In your work, you love it when someone says, “here’s a problem, no go figure out how to solve it.” You’re a creative problem-solver and you like open-ended assignments where you have the freedom to do it your way. You are the ultimate “self-starter.” You are happy to show up everyday and define the work that needs to be done and in what order. You’re really good at being your own boss.  

In terms of your job, you’re comfortable with some uncertainty. You don’t mind working really hard and then having periods of time where you’re not working (enjoying life) and looking for your next gig. You actually like the thrill of starting over with a new project and team of people.
