Damien didn't ask for my input, but I hope he does not mind my adding it....:)

As a writer, I don't think that imagination has much relation to a 'relaxed'
I find a much stronger correlation with mental restlessness and the need to
explore. I was a 'later born' but from birth had a personality
characterized by a high level of energy and an adventurous nature, and I
think of that as the source of my creativity rather than parenting or birth
order. I could write for the next fifty years and not keep up with all of
the ideas I get every day, because I quickly become bored with stasis and
repetition and want to try new things. I put on my mental hiking boots and
strike off on some faint path, just for the pleasure of following where it
leads. Rationality plays a part in it, too. The scientific studies and
other information I read provide the 'trail mix' that fuels my quest toward
some distant destination. Sometimes the path leads nowhere, but along the
way I might get to see some neon squirrels and maybe a flying cow or two.
