Exercise: Defining Creativity I Quiz Solution – Georgia Tech – KBAI: Part 5


>>So after much deliberation I decided I would define creativity simply as anything that produces an non-obvious, desirable product. I think that we have to have to sort of output for creativity in order for it to be actually be identifiable as creativity. I think that the output has to actually be wanted in some way. Doing something that no one wants is not necessarily creative. I think the output has to actually be desirable in some way, and it also has to be something non-obvious. Doing the obvious answer is not a very creative solution. If I’m propping open a door and I use a chair, it’s a slightly more creative solution to that problem. Thank you David. Or course everyone’s answer to this question may differ. For example, some people may not put the word product here. It’s not clear that the result of creativity is necessarily a product. Some people do not put the word desirable there because sometimes creativity may not result from some initial desire. Let us carry on this discussion of what is creativity on the forum. Feel free to add your own notions.
