    therefore this two sentences must be correct?

    Additionally,

    The suffix -or is added to a verb to make a noun:

    create (verb) => creator (noun)

    The suffix -ive is added to a verb to make an adjective:

    create (verb) => creative (adjective)

    Furthemore:

    Max is creative. (creative is an ajdective)
    Adjective TEST: What kind of person is Max? Max is a creative person.

    Max creates things.
    => Max is a creator. (creator is a noun)
    Noun TEST: Who is Max? Max is not a doctor; Max is a creator.
