WAR PHOTOGRAPHY X VINTAGE COMICS PROJECT BY BUTCHER BILLY

Brazil, Curitiba-based Art Direction Butcher Billy (tumblr) - "The visual experiment ended up bringing different results to each piece - from giving a whole new meaning to the picture by modifying the original concept, to reinforcing the same idea by making clear just how the elements were influenced by the history depicted in the photos, or even saying a lot about the psychology behind fiction and reality. While we see the contrast between the black and white photos and the colorful vintage comic books elements, it’s interesting to notice how the superheroes and supervillains world was actually "black and white" in a metaphoric way, while the strong war scenes are established in the real world, where the grey shaded line between good and evil isn’t always clear."

A new study has found that narcissistic people are more likely to consider themselves creative and do creative things than their non-narcissistic counterparts. … 207 people were surveyed via a series of tasks: they took tests to measure the “big five” personality traits (agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, openness, and neuroticism); they self-assessed their own creativity and answered the question of how many creative activities they had undertaken in the previous year; and they took the Narcissistic Personality Inventory. In the end, people with narcissistic tendencies were not only more likely to say they were creative; they also were more likely to do creative things

After the fascinating psychology of the relationships between creativity and anxiety and creativity and dishonesty, a new study looks at creativity and narcissism.
