Notes On The Origins Of Creativity
Howard Gardner, one of the countries premier creativity researchers found that each creative breakthrough entails an intersection of the childlike … the sensibilities of the very young
So, the origins of creativity include:
- childhood curiosity
- at least the presence of one adult who shows that rules don’t have to be followed
- interest in tinkering with what already exists
- ability to withstand repeated failures
- trust in one”s own instincts
This also points the way for all of us to become more creative.
