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

child…and the mature.

So, the origins of creativity include:

  1. childhood curiosity
  2. at least the presence of one adult who shows that rules don’t have to be followed
  3. interest in tinkering with what already exists
  4. ability to withstand repeated failures
  5. trust in one”s own instincts

This also points the way for all of us to become more creative.
