My initial thoughts of this video included I hate this video and why am I watching it. I felt Tan’s
arguments on what creativity was about or why creativity exists were not valuable to me. For example
when she said that in order for you to be a creative person you had to go through a traumatic childhood
but not every single person who wants to be an artist is going to go through a bad childhood. In my
opinion I just did not like the video and I felt that her speech went nowhere to what I was expecting out
of the speech and it was basically just a summary of her life story, which is irrelevant to the initial topic.
