Lee Grossman

Giovacchini opines that the innate talents that are the essence of creativity are associated with the particular character structure of the maverick. They bend rules but do not break them; they are nonconformists but not rebels. These character traits are independent of pathology. Givacchini uses brief examples, both from history and from clinical experience, to illustrate his thesis. He believes that the early environment provided considerable gratification, which made it possible for the creative person to rely on inner resources, rather than the outer world, both for stimulation and for security.
