Like, do you need to be particularly creative? Or believe in the afterlife or anything like that? I know the two arent really connected but maybe believing in things helps you make that leap of faith to realise you're dreaming, if you know what I mean?
I want to have lucid dreams and I just want to get into the mind set of a lucid dreamer, haha.

Many lucid dreamers have an active interest in spirituality. Besides that, I haven't noticed any other common personality traits.
If you've ever met or conversed with someone like this, you'll know what I mean. There's something about them that you can just feel is different from most.
Am I Dreaming?--------------------------------------------------------- ?gnimaerD I mA
Here is an analogy for you. Think of a golf ball. Try throwing a golf ball as far as you can. It will go about 50 yards if you have a good arm. Then someone with a club says I can show you how to hit it 250 yards. if you knew nothing of golf, you may say "no way, that is impossible". Then boom they hit it 250 yards right in front of you.
Now if you were to take this club he has you would only get it to go 10 yards or slice it to the right with no idea why. It may even frustrate you, and you say "forget this". But if you start taking on the techniques, you will learn to start hitting it further! There are a lot of reasons as to why the club hits it further than we can throw the ball, but you can worry about that when you learn to hit the ball first!
So look at Lucid Dreaming as hitting the golf ball 250 yards. Start by learning the techniques, such as meditation. It may take a while before you hit the ball 250 yards, but you will get there and have many revelations on your way to doing so.
Hope this helps-

I'll tell you about that something about them. They have trained themselves to be more aware of their environment (be it reality or dream). They have gained experience in lucid dreaming and put it into practice in the waking state.
The only way you are going to get into the mindset of a lucid dreamer is by experiencing lucid dreams yourself. You don't particularly have to believe in anything or be creative, but, via lucid dreaming, you can become creative or you can develop your own beliefs and find yourself.
In fact, you can use lucid dreaming to be whoever you want to be in waking life. After all, as Stephen LaBerge once said, in a dream, "you are who you dream yourself to be".
