Creativity Overview

Creativity is the ability to recognize new connections and patterns between elements residing in your “library” of long term memories. A moment of inspiration occurs when this newly recognized pattern is seen as a whole or partial solution to an existing problem.

Your creative skills can be enhanced by four primary means:

  • Enhancing your general mental performance
  • Enhancing your memory skills
  • Growing your library of long term memory objects
  • Learning to use creative thinking tools
