Qualities of Creative Leaders/Lovers

Live With Art It's Good For You poster  

Another list for you list-lovers out there.  Here's a great one from David Ogilvy, highly revered in the advertising world, of qualities he looks for in creative leaders :

High standards of personal ethics. Big people, without pettiness. Guts under pressure, resilience in defeat. Brilliant brains – not safe plodders. A capacity for hard work and midnight oil. Charisma – charm and persuasiveness. A streak of unorthodoxy – creative innovators. The courage to make tough decisions. Inspiring enthusiasts – with trust and gusto. A sense of humor.

 

I was thinking this list might be good information in a dating site profile.  You know the question about "what are you looking for in a mate"?  Do you think anyone would dare respond to a set of criteria like this?  Just wondering.
