It's a little irritating when teachers tell you to "be creative". That's like telling someone "be pretty," amirite?

Well not really. You can be creative, you just gotta work at it. As opposed to being pretty, which comes with genetics so unless you get plastic surgery you're stuck with what you got.

Creativity comes at least partly with exercise. Sure, some people are more talented in it, but you can train yourself to be creative. It's just about thinking in a different way and you can learn to so that

Agreed with the "NW" camp here - it IS possible to learn creativity. Chinese society has also proved that you can suppress creativity, further proving that it isn't as "natural" as you might think, but in fact the result of a certain upbringing or training. It is conditioning.

You can make yourself look pretty and you can make yourself be creative. Effort.

You can't just make yourself creative in the same way you can't just make yourself be not creative or be logical or be good at music or any other aspect of a personality. Yeah, you have to work on all of those things to bring them out, but if you don't have it you can't bring it out.

Bitch, please! Have you ever tried tying your hair with ribbons?!

Yes. You can draw a yellow circle and a long green line or you could make long rays of gradual thickness on the sun and grass waving in the wind, which would be the creative way. You could go wearing sweatpants and sweatshirt or you could put up your hair tied in a ribbon or something and wear a cool dress to make yourself look pretty. There's a difference between being something naturally and looking/acting like it.

Sure. You just have to make sure to use a regular hairband first, and then tie the ribbon on top so it hides it.
