 Five steps to be the creative genius

2013/10/22 9:13:35      view:3374

  Is everyone creative? Sure they are, but in very different ways and to varying degrees。 There is a big difference between the folksong you wrote for your college sweetheart and a Beethoven symphony。

    Our democratic longing to make everyone and everything equal has lead us to make creative greatness indistinguishable from an act of personal expression. What is lacking is meaningful appreciation of the different levels of creativity and how we can use them as steps for increasing our own potential.

    Here are five levels and types of creativity, from the easiest to the most difficult to master.

    Mimetic Creativity

    Mimesis is a term passed d own to us from the Ancient Greeks meaning to imitate or mimic. This is the most rudimentary form of creativity. Animals from Caledonian crows to orangutans have the ability to create tools simply by observing other creatures. Watch a mother and child together and it becomes clear that we do the same. It is the foundation of the learning process.

    An often-overlooked form of creativity is simply taking an idea from one area or discipline and applying it to another. For example, a physician at the Mayo Clinic who wants to improve the patient experience may pay a visit to a Ritz-Carlton, which is known for its customer service.

    The late Apple (AAPL) co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs saw this a bility to move across boundaries to adapt ideas as the key to useful creativity: "Creativity is just connecting things。 When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didnt really do it, they just saw something。 It seemed obvious to them after a while。 Thats because they were able to connect experiences theyve had and synthesize new things。"

    Bisociative Creativity

快3娱乐平台     "Bisociative" is a term coined by the novelist Arthur Koestler in his celebrated book The Act of Creation to describe how our conscious mind can connect rational with intuitive thoughts to produce so-called Eureka moments。 In the Zen tradition, this act of communion is called Satori, meaning sudden enlightenment。 Bisociative creativity occurs when a familiar idea is connected to an unfamiliar one to produce a novel hybrid。

    Though connecting ideas is often done through more contemplative means, it can be stimulated by bombarding the mind with a barrage of random thoughts to see what catches. The general description for this type of activity is called brainstorming. For example, in 1994, while coming out of a near bankruptcy experience and working on Toy Story, four of the original Pixar directors had lunch at a diner and brainstormed ideas about movies they wanted make. Building on each others concepts, from this one informal meeting came A Bugs Life, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo,and WALL-E. Hollywood outsiders changed the motion picture industry in an afternoon of throwing ideas together.

    Bisociative creativity builds on the electrifying dynamics of the three Fs:

    • Fluency – It is more productive to have lots of unpolished ideas than a few "good" ones because the greater the diversity of ideas, the wider the range of possible solutions

    • Flexibility – Often we have the "right" idea but weve put it in the "wrong" place so we have to move them around to see where they best fit to meet our challenges

    • Flow – We arent creative on demand. We need to be both simulated and relaxed to draw out the energy required to create. Ideas pour out smoothly when we get into a groove
