Creatives are multiplicitous and varied. So, you're not the only one, but there's no one like you.
That being said, it's almost inevitable that you'll be categorized based on what other people understand "creative" to mean.
That doesn't mean that it's not kind of a drag every time it happens.
People are weirdly complex and simultaneously super fucking simple. We understand things based on what we've learned, and we learn things based on patterns we've observed.
Unfortunately, people get really hung up on these patterns. After all, this is what helps them make sense of the world. But, when they see something that doesn't quite fit, it becomes a very round-hole-square-peg situation.
And you get weirdly categorized again.
