An interesting article and we agree based on our own research into DNA Behaviors that people who are creative will have a natural instinct to work around rules, problems and barriers. However, whether they do or not will also be related to their character which will influence decision-making. You cannot say all creative people are of bad character. Also, we have seen those people who are naturally ambitious and competitive could also have a natural drive to cut corners to achieve goals. So, if a person is both creative and ambitious then this natural motivation will be even stronger, subject to character.
