Common Phobias of Creatives

Funny this list doesn't have on "Not being great" which is way too common. (Secret: greatness comes and goes and if you use it to judge your worth you'll never make it anywhere.)

Love this infographic below though because it touches on some of the work related issues like non-stop meetings or having to work in Excel or losing your passion.

These things happen. But don't let them stop you. There will be good days and bad days and scary days, and that's just how it is.

What doesn't kill you will strengthen you. And this is advertising.
It won't kill you.

The Common Phobias of Creatives 

We all have fears—spiders, heights, clowns.

To highlight the fears of creative professionals, creative agency Column Five Media—in collaboration with the social network for creatives The Creative Finder—has created an infographic.

In ‘The Common Phobias of Creatives’, it states that within the office, creative types have a phobia of: PCs, Comic Sans, sterile cube farm environments, internet outages, and hovering helicopter bosses.

When freelancing, creatives fear asking for extensions, asking for payments, getting non-traditional compensations, and never being able to say “no” to a project.

When it comes to dealing with clients, creatives are afraid to get these responses: “I’m not in love with it”; “Let me circulate it around the office”; “Can we make it ‘pop’ more”; “Can we get this ASAP”; “I’ll know it when I see it”; and “This is a good start, but…”.

Creatives, are these truly your fears?
