Creativity vs. Curiosity

I think we humans overall have two different types of mental pursuit: creativity and curiosity. The former produce artists, the later produce scientists, or philosophers.

For very long time I've been pondering why art could not be enough for me, the answer became quite clear recently: even though I have some art talent, profoundly speaking, I am more a person with curious nature, which cannot be satisfied by art. This makes working as a professional artist a profound contradiction to my nature. No wonder I struggled!
