Introduction

Nick Livingston Originality I value original thinkers. Being original is something which is terribly important to me. The reason being I am a twin. Non-identical and extremely different, yet still a twin. I hate being similar. I think it somehow devalues me as a person. The world without originality is a world without intrigue and imagination. Unbelievably boring. That is not me and, hopefully never will be. What the world needs is new ideas, as old ones, however improved are basically the same. To progress as a human race, individual or group, originality is a necessity. It provides us with new technology, new ways of life and if, you are the the orginal thinker, a sense of importance and public appreciation.

Conclusion

In a nutshell, do I want to be original for me or to carry on the past trend. This in itself I find very ironic. The whole concept of originality is to create or be something new and different, yet my strive for it may be fueled by events in the past. One thing that does bother me is that originallity is becoming a trend. This I feel is quite damaging in the sense that it devalues original thinking as people want to be original because Mr. X is doing it and then it catches on and Mrs Y is now copying Mr. X. Originality should come naturally to those that are hallowed with this essential quality, not sought after because it is the latest must have character trait. The problem is those who are lucky enough to be a true original thinker don't express their voice. They just copy what everyone else is doing. ...read more.
