Between Talent and Creativity: Is there a Difference?

by Lulu G. Canlas, FEBRUARY 2022

Do you agree that only talented people are creative? Have you ever thought about whether or not there is a difference between being creative and talented?

Talent is defined as the potential or actual ability to perform a skill better than most people; whereas being creative is defined as making or bringing something new into existence.

And so, there is a difference and that people may have either or both. We asked MPT South Employees their opinion and here is their answer.

EMPLOYEEDIVISIONWHY DISAGREE
Leslie S. SaulogCommunication & Stakeholder Management Hindi po. Because I firmly believe that all of us are creative in our own different ways. In the same way that we are given special talents which we can hone to showcase our creativity in the most exquisite manner that we can.
Mhanny S. AgustoCommunication & Stakeholder ManagementI do believe that people are innately creative, as talent is something earned and learned. Being talented does not equate to being creative, and vice versa. I firmly believe that each person, regardless of having or not having talent, is creative in his or her own way–may it be in solving problems or dealing with life in general. That is all for now ladies and gentlemen. Thank you!
Joan B. MirandaCommunication & Stakeholder ManagementPara sa akin, pag creative ka, talented ka, pero hindi lahat ng talented ay creative.
Arlette V. CapistranoCommunication & Stakeholder ManagementHindi. Talent at creativity ay magkaiba. Pero ang isang tao ay may kapasidad na pagtingin pa ito sa kanilang sarili. Ang talent ay inborn, mga taong pinanganak na may talent ay natural na nangunguna sa larangan ng kanilang talento, pag guhit, sports, musika etc. Ang creativity ay pagsasabuhay ng mga bagong isang bagay, proseso, imbensyon na noo’y wala. Para magkaroon ng pareho, kailangan ay gustuhin natin na pag igihan pa ang ating sarili mag attend ng trainings, paligiran ang inyong sarili ng mga taong may karakter na iniidolo natin, sanayin maging consistent, practice makes perfect. Umpisahan muna sa isang bagay na gusto pa nating gumaling, tapos dagdagan, sky is the limit kung hanggang saan larangan mo man gusto maging talented at creative.
Sunshine L. AlejandroFinanceHindi po. Kasi hindi lang naman sa talent napapakita at nagbabase ang creativity ng isang tao. It might be through thinking din kasi which is hindi lahat ay marunong mag-express. 🙂
Margie S. DanesFinanceHindi, Ang pagiging creative ng isang tao ay nakadepende sa kanyang hilig o sa isang bagay na nag e-enjoy syang gawin. Mas lumilitaw ang creativity ng isang tao kapag sya ay masaya sa kanyang ginagawa.
Heinz Reimann OraisFinanceHindi. Maari itong matutunan kung parating ito’y ipa-practice. Ang pagiging malikhain ay hindi lang applicable sa arts, maari itong magamit sa pag formulate ng solusyon para sa isang problema.
Arlynn B. PapioOperations ManagementHindi, dahil bawat isa satin ay may kakayanan bilang maging isang malikhain hindi lamang sa paggawa ng mga bagay na magaganda, pagguhit ng mga magagandang larawan atbp. Ngunit maaari ka ring maging malikhain sa paggawa ng pang-araw-araw na gawain katulad ng pag-iisip mo sa trabaho kung paano mapapadali ang mga gawain, paggawa ng mga email at kahit na pakikipag-usap mo sa iyong katrabaho.
Sharmain E. BinaraoOperations ManagementNo. merun kasing mga taong hindi naman talented pero dahil sa perseverance and hard work and experience na rin they able to make something creative.
Rodel M. SicaporeOperations ManagementHindi, dahil maaring sila ay mag kahiwalay na katangian. Pwede kasing talented lang pero hindi creative and vice versa.
Arnel NatividadOperations ManagementAng pagiging CREATIVE ay hindi lang sa pagiging talented but also sa pagiging gifted, such as, You can be creative in terms of how you communicate and at the same time inspired others. People can be called as creative on how they see negative into constructive, and may malawak na pananaw sa Buhay. Lahat ng challenges and struggles ay nagagawan ng solusyon at lagpasan.
Dennis A. de LunaTollways Development & Engineering“inde” dahil lahat ng tao pwde creative basta mapanuri lang at mapagmatyag sa mga bagay bagay .
Rigo Jude P. PagariganTollways Development & EngineeringHindi, depende rin sa tao. Dahil marami lang ang sumasabay sa trend or uso, although talented sila pero hindi lumalabas ang pagiging creative nila to create something new.
Ivy L. ManaloTollways Development & EngineeringHindi. We’re not as talented as some other people but we can be creative in our own ways.
Pauline Renz P. VillanuevaTechnology ManagementHindi, dahil may mga taong creative din pero sa ibang paraan o sa kakaibang paraan.
