Does Creativity Have An Expiration Date? - The Creative Mind

Does Creativity Have An Expiration Date? - The Creative Mind | Creative Potential Institute | Scoop.it

Research on creativity and creative achievement shows some creators may peak early, while others continue creating into late age.

Edward Albee won a Tony award for a new play in 2002, at age 75.

At 97, architect Oscar Niemeyer was developing one of his most ambitious projects.

On the other end of the age range, the photo shows Zoe Yin (left) and Victoria Yin, age 11 and 14, who have shown their work at expos, galleries, and art shows internationally, and “selling paintings for tens of thousands of dollars,” according to a new Creativity Post article: At What Age Will Your Creativity Peak?

The article mentions that psychologist Dean Keith Simonton “proposes in his book Origins of Genius: Darwinian Perspectives on Creativity that the age of the creative peak is determined by the discipline in which the artist is engaged. Poets peak much earlier than novelists, whose craft matures over time.”

Watch and Link Disparate Ideas

Watch and Link Disparate Ideas | Creative Potential Institute | Scoop.it
An important skill to develop to enhance thinking creatively is to be able to link disparate ideas. Often this is called associational thinking. Creative people see links where most see empty gaps. It’s important to know that if you feel you lack this skill of associational thinking, it is not magic and can be developed by anyone with practice.

This area is a collection of videos of creative people in all kinds of disciplines, we will add new ones regularly. As you check them out, reflect on what kinds of links or insights to the challenges and questions you are working on there might be.

If you haven't found your calling by, say, age 30, it's pretty much hopeless, right? If you were going to make it, you'd have made it by now. Well ... maybe not.

» The Complexity of the Creative Personality - The Creative Mind | Creative Potential Institute | Scoop.it

Creativity researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi says, “If there is one word that makes creative people different from others, it is the word complexity.

 

“Like the color white that includes all colors, they tend to bring together the entire range of human possibilities within themselves. Creativity allows for paradox, light, shadow, inconsistency, even chaos – and creative people experience both extremes with equal intensity.”
