    "A study of 280 successful scientists found that their creativity tended to diminish once they got married. This also held true for musicians, painters and authors. "

    Too much energy "wasted" in bed.

    LOL I think it's a matter of tension. Freud hypothesized that the drive to achieve and create was an outlet of sexual energy; while his theory of libido was pretty kooky, it does seem that happily married people have less of an 'itch' and are more content to leave things the way they are.

    that's because working artists are few and far between. For every rich famous rockstar there's hundreds more who are living in a van by the river, not exactly the kind of person you want for a lifemate.

    Married people also have a lot less free time, especially when kids are involved. Therefor hobby artists don't get as much time to hone their craft and create new ideas.

    Also, people who get married are usually in their late 20's-early 30's. That also the same year where artists who haven't "made it big" yet "grow up and get a real job" or at least get severely dillusioned.

    I'm surprised it took a team of scientists to figure that one out.

    My theory is this... y'all can slap me if you want, I'm not being rude, just trying to be fair.

    They say creative people who are married. Ok, well only straight people can be married, therefore how many creative straight people are there? The most talented creative people I know are gay. Think of all the artists throughout time who were gay, think of the clothing designers of today, think of the stylists, etc.... so they aren't sampling correctly. They need to take "marriage" out of the statistic and make it "committed relationship" and also include gay people in the sampling. Then find out if that is true or not.

    One of my best friends is a graphic designer artist and absolutely mind blowingly talented and creative and he's gay and been in the same relationship for I think about 10 years. But of course he wouldn't be in that sampling.

    So, 280 successful scientists are telling me that I'm not creative. Hmmmmm, and just who are these 280 scientists? Do they include themselves? How succesful are they?
