John Cleese tries to explain creativity and how to become more creative. The background of his lecture is scientific, the guide based on his own experience. This is really spot on and any creative professional will agree. Plus, it is really funny at the same time!

The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson
An excerpt from The Psychopath Test:
Bob seemed melancholy. It was as if the crash had made him introspective. He said, almost to himself, “I should never have done all my research in prisons. I should have spent my time inside the Stock Exchange as well.”
I looked at Bob.
“Do you mean that?” I asked.
“I mean it,” he said.
“But surely stock market psychopaths can’t be as bad as serial killer psychopaths,” I said.
“Serial killers ruin families,” shrugged Bob. “Corporate and political and religious psychopaths ruin economies. They ruin societies.”
This - Bob was saying - was the straightforward solution to the greatest mystery of all: why is the world so unfair? Why all that savage economic injustice, those brutal wars, the everyday corporate cruelty? The answer: psychopaths. That part of the brain that doesn’t function right. You’re standing on an escalator and you watch the people going past on the opposite escalator. If you could climb inside their brains you would see we aren’t all the same. We aren’t all good people just trying to do good. Some of us are psychopaths. And psychopaths are to blame for this brutal, misshapen society. They’re the jagged rocks thrown into the still pond.
Jean “Moebius” Giraud (May 8th 1938 - March 10th 2012)
He was the single greatest comic book artist and illustrator for me since the very first day I laid my eyes on his artwork as a teenager. He was, is, and forever will be a continuous and inexhaustible source of inspiration.
