The DAIS team recently stumbled upon a fun quiz from Adobe that explores what kind of creative type you are based on a range of questions from the straightforward (Dip your toes or dive in head first?) to the more obscure (Are you a fortune cookie or a birthday cake?). Based on psychological research, Adobe developed the quiz as a way to “assesses your basic habits and tendencies – how you think, how you act, how you see the world – to help you better understand who you are as a creative”.
It created a buzz throughout the studio to find out each other’s results and how close the summaries were to our actual personalities. Whose results were more introverted vs extroverted? Analytical or intuitive? Idealist or realist? Check out the results of some of our team members!

The Creative Types Quiz also had us delving further into the effects that different personalities and creative types have on the work we produce. The DAIS studio has a variety of different creative types which allows us to contribute different insights, views, and ideas to create more innovative, inspiring work. For example, with the idealism of a Dreamer grounded by the pragmatic solutions of an Innovator or a Visionary’s soaring imagination delivered with the focus and dedication of a Maker, the possibilities are endless.
Whilst we can’t rely on an internet quiz to summarise our personalities with 100% accuracy, it’s fun to get a glimpse at how different traits and choices shape how we think and create.
