We are all equel, created as creators.The need to create is unreasonable and when it takes over a person creation will be at hand. This is a gift. The gift is not the overwhelming desire to create as much as it is the combined package the human hand and all that it can create as well as the imagination. I believe we all have this gift this ability. However when sloth takes over this ability becomes a disability. A mind that's convinced that the hand doesn't work right yet desires to poses must find another route. Taking from another is to create , for the one that doesn't create.
