but I need your opinion as you an experts , are the above behaviours can qualify me or intutive behaviours for a writer or artist ?

Answer
The simple truth is that it's impossible to say.  Sure, having a good imagination will help, but being a good writer is far more than just that.  You can be the most imaginative person around, but if you never learn HOW to write, you won't be a good writer.  Very few people have an innate ability to write well, and even they can learn more by studying the craft.

But instead of asking others' opinions, you really need to ask yourself:  Do you WANT to be a writer or artist?  Because it's a lot of hard work, and not something you should pursue unless it's a huge desire you can't shake.
