I get along with creative people the most!
I work with diverse amount of people, mainly people with arts backgrounds, but I also work with, techies, architects, business people...and I've found on the whole I just gel with creatives, or people who deal with aociology the most. Architects, industrial designers, are too much on the serious side of "creative".
Whenever, I work with business people it's so interesting to watch their emotions, and gestures, on the whole the so much more "dry and serious" and it's actually quite painful me to interact with them. It's like "far out, take a chill pill".
But on the flip side, creatives that I work with tend, to be loud, quirky, at times weird sense of humour and can be crass... but I just love it. I love the feeling I get in that sort of environment. I feel so at ease with that sort of environment, because they're just open, and bizarre. Today I had such a fun time, with the creative bunch I was working with...they just make you walk out of a room with a "that was so fun" feeling.
So yeah I just realised why I work so well in a creative people, and so now I am worried….as I just applied for a corporate job and have an interview soon.
I have a feeling I will feel too stifled.
I don't like to pigeon hole people...which I am sort of doing... I know, but do business/corporate people on here ever interact with creatives...do you find them quite hard to interact with creative, arty type people?
I probably will get blasted for judging a social group, but my intention was not to antagonise, but rather notice if others have a type of group they tend to bond better with.

well, I am a creative person too and I think I am more of the quiet, formal type of person as opposed to your "stereotype" of the creative bunch. I think it just so happened that it's their personality and not because they're the artsy type.
Most artistic person are loners, quiet, and yes, weird and eccentric--which I am.
But as you have applied for a corporate job, if I were you, I won't have to worry about that since you can always adjust to your new surroundings.
Just do your job well

Architecture and industrial design is about creativity and results that work. There is a finished product that must function. This is a serious responsibility.
A lot of creativity is concerned with producing things that only need to illcit opinion - like sculpture. There is little responsibility and who's going to notice it?

I am like you in that I love quirky creative people, but I have survived many a crowd lacking in creative people. I usually end up befriending the most genuine people and/or the people who balance me (they may not be creative/artsy/whatever themselves, but they appreciate it and so it works).
What I'm saying is, give it a try. You may be surprised. Maybe your quirkiness will be a welcomed or maybe it'll be shunned, but "the corporate world" is a large world and you won't see until you figure it out.
Plus, your work friends don't have to be your only friends, so give it a try.
