MORE IDEAS FROM Divergent Thinking: The Mental Muscle Behind Consistent Creativity | Nick Wignall
Is the ability to generate many ideas or solutions from a single idea or piece of information.
It’s thought to be one of, if not the most, important factor in creativity.
It involves the ability to recognize unexpected situations, quickly consider various possible responses, and decide on the best one.
It means performing well at the highest levels, by having the ability not only to think well but to think flexibly and quickly.
One 2014 study found that people tend to be more creative when they are walking rather than when they are sitting down.
So if you are tied to a desk and struggling to come up with a good idea, try going for a quick walk to see if inspiration might strike.
Convergent thinking is based on prior knowledge, while divergent thinking is based on imagination.
