Creativity and the Brain…

Creativity and the Brain...

Did you know that creative people share a few common traits:
1. they are able to function on very few hours of sleep
2. they focus on work intensely
3. they have a tendency to experience a wide range of emotions or so says Kay Redfield Jamison- a Professor in Psychiatry at John Hopkins. She also says that ironically these same traits of highly creative people are also documented in individuals with mood disorders.

What does it take for someone to be called creative?

It is suggested that “two factors seem to be essential for creativity: imagination
constrained by experience, and filtering that selects most interesting solutions.” as stated by Włodzisław Duch Department of Informatics,

So, does turning your bass over and plucking a note in a different part of the fingerboard constitute creativity?

What is creativity to you??
