Dyslexia and Creativity
Design Research Ph.D.; Author, 'Profit from Design'
Right-brained and left-brained, masculine and feminine, blue-eyed and brown-eyed: Are certain kinds of people more creative than others? Many of the super creative designers I have worked with seemed to have one thing in common; they suffered from dyslexia. Looking back in history, Leonardo da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, Jørn Utzon, Agatha Christie and Albert Einstein were all dyslexic. So, is dyslexia linked to creativity? Good news for those who can spell, the answer is no.
So bearing in mind that Einstein was dyslexic, it might be his dyslexia that led many people to think that he was an idiot, and he had to struggle against that. BUT we still have his dyslexic (or idiotic) stuff spouted at us with the pretence that its clever when its really moronic nonsense!
