Consider what you would think when you meet someone who is an artist. On the surface, it sounds both exciting, romantic, and glamorous.

And for many, being an artist certainly does involve a great deal of excitement. But being a successful artist is also a lot of work, which is what many people fail to see.

A creative person, however, realizes that real creativity involves combining both the fun and the hard work. They can immerse themselves in imagination and fantasy, yet remain grounded in reality.

Creative types, ranging from scientists to artists to musicians, can come up with imaginative solutions to real-world issues.

And they are right. But the whole point of art and science is to go beyond what we now consider real and create a new reality. Creative people, he believes, are both extroverted and introverted. Intelligence as a subset of creativity[ edit ] In this relationship model, intelligence is a key component in the development of creativity. The creative individual has to persevere, and convince the others of the ideas value.

According to this theory, six distinct, but related elements contribute to successful creativity: intelligence, knowledge, thinking styles, personality, motivation, and environment. Intelligence is just one of the six factors that can either solely, or in conjunction with the other five factors, generate creative thoughts.

Creativity requires a confluence of all components. High creativity will result when an individual is: intrinsically motivated, possesses both a high level of domain-relevant skills and has high skills in creative thinking, and is working in a highly creative environment. Amusement Park Theoretical Model.


The researchers make use of the metaphor of the amusement park to demonstrate that within each of these creative levels, intelligence plays a key role: To get into the amusement park, there are initial requirements e.

Initial requirements like intelligence are necessary, but not sufficient for creativity. Secondly are the subcomponents — general thematic areas — that increase in specificity. Like choosing which type of amusement park to visit e.

Thirdly, there are specific domains. After choosing the type of park to visit e. Within the poetry domain, there are many different types e.

Lastly, there are micro-domains. These are the specific tasks that reside within each domain e. Creativity and intelligence as overlapping yet distinct constructs[ edit ] This possible relationship concerns creativity and intelligence as distinct, but intersecting constructs.

Under this view, creativity and intelligence are distinct constructs, but they do overlap under the correct conditions. PASS theory of intelligence. In this theory, the planning component — relating to the ability to solve problems, make decisions and take action — strongly overlaps with the concept of creativity.

Above this threshold of an IQ of , if there is a relationship at all, it is small and weak. In support of the TT, Barron [68] [89] reported finding a non-significant correlation between creativity and intelligence in a gifted sample; and a significant correlation in a non-gifted sample. Fuchs-Beauchamp et al.

Preckel et al. Creativity and intelligence as coincident sets[ edit ] Under this view, researchers posit that there are no differences in the mechanisms underlying creativity in those used in normal problem solving; and in normal problem solving, there is no need for creativity. Thus, creativity and Intelligence problem solving are the same thing. The problem can only be solved if the lines go outside the boundaries of the square of dots.

Results demonstrated that even when participants were given this insight, they still found it difficult to solve the problem, thus showing that to successfully complete the task it is not just insight or creativity that is required.

Creativity and intelligence as disjoint sets[ edit ] In this view, creativity and intelligence are completely different, unrelated constructs.

Getzels and Jackson [67] administered 5 creativity measures to a group of children from grades , and compared these test findings to results from previously administered by the school IQ tests. However, this work has been heavily criticised. Wallach and Kogan [69] highlighted that the creativity measures were not only weakly related to one another to the extent that they were no more related to one another than they were with IQ , but they seemed to also draw upon non-creative skills.

McNemar [99] noted that there were major measurement issues, in that the IQ scores were a mixture from 3 different IQ tests. Wallach and Kogan [69] administered 5 measures of creativity, each of which resulted in a score for originality and fluency; and 10 measures of general intelligence to 5th grade children. These tests were untimed, and given in a game-like manner aiming to facilitate creativity.

Neuroscience[ edit ] The neuroscience of creativity looks at the operation of the brain during creative behaviour. Thus, the frontal lobe appears to be the part of the cortex that is most important for creativity.

This article also explored the links between creativity and sleep, mood and addiction disorders , and depression. In , Alice Flaherty presented a three-factor model of the creative drive.

Drawing from evidence in brain imaging, drug studies and lesion analysis, she described the creative drive as resulting from an interaction of the frontal lobes, the temporal lobes , and dopamine from the limbic system. The frontal lobes can be seen as responsible for idea generation, and the temporal lobes for idea editing and evaluation. Abnormalities in the frontal lobe such as depression or anxiety generally decrease creativity, while abnormalities in the temporal lobe often increase creativity.

High activity in the temporal lobe typically inhibits activity in the frontal lobe, and vice versa. High dopamine levels increase general arousal and goal directed behaviors and reduce latent inhibition , and all three effects increase the drive to generate ideas. Vandervert's explanation rests on considerable evidence that all processes of working memory responsible for processing all thought [] are adaptively modeled for increased efficiency by the cerebellum.

The cerebellum's adaptive models of working memory processing are then fed back to especially frontal lobe working memory control processes [] where creative and innovative thoughts arise. These new levels of the control architecture are fed forward to the frontal lobes. Since the cerebellum adaptively models all movement and all levels of thought and emotion, [] Vandervert's approach helps explain creativity and innovation in sports, art, music, the design of video games, technology, mathematics, the child prodigy , and thought in general.

Essentially, Vandervert has argued that when a person is confronted with a challenging new situation, visual-spatial working memory and speech-related working memory are decomposed and re-composed fractionated by the cerebellum and then blended in the cerebral cortex in an attempt to deal with the new situation.

With repeated attempts to deal with challenging situations, the cerebro-cerebellar blending process continues to optimize the efficiency of how working memory deals with the situation or problem. Further, Vandervert and Vandervert-Weathers believe that this repetitive "mental prototyping" or mental rehearsal involving the cerebellum and the cerebral cortex explains the success of the self-driven, individualized patterning of repetitions initiated by the teaching methods of the Khan Academy.

The model proposed by Vandervert has, however, received incisive critique from several authors. Sleep aids this process. The main contribution to the topic of creativity, and also the main concept explored in this volume, is the Systems Model of Creativity.
