i think heres something that could be used for a discussion. im sure many people have heard about this. and whats your opinion on that?

and which one you choose/think more important and which type do you think you are/more dominant?
will creativity work without logic or will logic work without creativity?

and from what ive seen or the people i know, most of them wanted to be seen more as creative while i think that logic is as much as or could be more important since the society or most of, often act illogically and sometimes unconsciously or possibly they shut down their logic because of their emotions or other reasons. and theres also lack of critical thinking issues.
again still nudging about emotions theres also a topic about creativity associated to mental issues. (neurological view)
do you oppose or support that?
unrelated to that but i experienced/i came across some people who claim that they behave emotionally unstable/impulsive because theyre creative/gifted/genious.
some people think doing/making wacky, weird stuff as highly creative.

mostly peoples definition of creative is more into art. but i see creative as the ability to generate new idea. how about inventors? are they logical or creative?
there are also left handed vs right handed, left lobe vs right lobe topic. do people who used left hand more/left handed are more creative than people who use right hand more/right handed? or does it mean that left handed people are the creative type?

Creativity as it is the root of how we are able to interpret things in a way that others would want to learn about in it self creates logic.

That's really interesting erm to be honest i think both are just important as each other for example.
The human race needed creativity to have the ability to think of using a tool and thus the tools developed and became more advance but without being logical you wouldn't be able to percieve the situation in the correct way.

All in all a moderate amount of both is good

I believe that everything needs to be set into some level of logic. (even a creative world need to make sense)

Creativity because imagination is the key to creating any blueprint design or model.

You need some sort of logic principles to craft something. If you go straight on creativity you will not be able to lower your choices of what to create, and what you must do in order to make what you create inspirational and powerful. Creativity is a building block of creation, but logic and creativity are both needed equally.

Your right you do not create something out of nothing and im not saying that logic doesn't exists only that creativity is first and supreme because you use creativity to think on what to make what to make it look like creativity makes the model and logic is used to create it into a tangible thing

Imho, you need to logic to make creativity useful. People create all sorts of stuff; after that you have to impart it to others, which is where logic comes in. Example: creativity made a circle; then logic made the wheel.

But since logic is something that we created, creativity would be the most important, I think.

If we lose logic we can always just create it again. But if we lose creativity there's no way to recover it logically.

This is a tricky one, because creativity and logic operate together so intimately. I think all that people do is create (we create art, tools, and emotions). When we're being "creative" or we use "creativity" we are trying to pull something out of the chaos that is the world, as well as our own being at times. With that said, the only creative energy or tangible objects (via creative energy) that survive are the ones that adhere to some form of logical order. I guess what I'm getting at, is that:

We never fail to create, but we can (and do) fail to be logical.

Logic is overrated. Rationality limits imagination and freedom.
If I can think it, my opposing thumbs and photographic memory shall make it so, no matter what format it is!
paper, digital, or reality, I shall bring life to it in any way possible!
...
I feel inspired now, time to draw!

Tough call... I am both a creative and a logical person, but just this once I will say logic comes first. There is a sense of logic to my creativity, even if no one else can tell.
