Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Creatividad | Scoop.it

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (/ˈmiːhaɪ ˌtʃiːksɛntməˈhaɪ.iː/ MEE-hy CHEEK-sent-mə-HY-ee; Hungarian: Csíkszentmihályi Mihály [ˈtʃiːksɛntmihaːji ˈmihaːj]; born September 29, 1934, in Fiume, Italy – now Rijeka, Croatia) is a Hungarian psychology professor, who emigrated to the United States at the age of 22. Now at Claremont Graduate University, he is the former head of the department of psychology at the University of Chicago and of the department of sociology and anthropology at Lake Forest College.

He is noted for his work in the study of happiness and creativity, but is best known as the architect of the notion of flow and for his years of research and writing on the topic. He is the author of many books and over 120 articles or book chapters. Martin Seligman, former president of the American Psychological Association, described Csikszentmihalyi as the world's leading researcher on positive psychology.[1] Csikszentmihalyi once said "Repression is not the way to virtue. When people restrain themselves out of fear, their lives are by necessity diminished. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed and still kept within the bounds of reason."[2] His works are influential and are widely cited.

The Seven Elements of a Creative Personality

The Seven Elements of a Creative Personality | Creatividad | Scoop.it

A creative person can be identified through certain personality traits, new research has suggested. Carried out by Professor Oyvind Martinsen at BI Norwegian Business School, the study looked at 481 people from different backgrounds and used a variety of tasks to assess creative abilities and skills.

It was found that seven paramount traits can be used to characterise creative individuals, with associative orientation - being imaginative, playful and full of ideas - among the factors that contribute the most to creative thinking.

The other main characteristic is flexibility - or having the ability to look at the different aspects of issues.

Making up the remainder of the seven personality traits are a need for originality, motivation, ambition, low emotional stability and low sociability, all of which serve to either influence creativity or spark an interest in it.

Professor Martinsen stated: "Associative orientation is linked to ingenuity. Flexibility is linked to insight," adding: "The seven personality traits influence creative performance through interaction."

Dr Kamal Birdi from the Institute of Work Psychology at the University of Sheffield, a Chartered Psychologist, comments:

‘Professor Martinsen has conducted a well-executed study by using a variety of samples plus both self-report and objective measures of creativity. The findings that certain personality traits relate to better creativity concurs broadly with other research on the same topic.

"However, we must also be aware that a person’s creative output is influenced by more than just their stable personality traits and research has uncovered a number of malleable factors that lead to better creativity. For example, a certain level of knowledge of the domain someone is working in is required for significant advances; too much knowledge can be a bad thing if it leads to rigid thinking but it would be hard to make a breakthrough in engineering, say, if you did not know the basic principles of the discipline.

"Also, the ability of individuals to generate more original ideas can be developed through training in creative thinking techniques such as synectics (using analogies) or morphological analysis (breaking down and recombining aspects of a problem in different ways). The motivation of individuals to be creative can be enhanced by using appropriate rewards or opportunities and encouraging highly positive moods leads to better idea generation. ...

Many Generation Y workers do not yet feel they work in environments where new ideas can thrive, a new survey shows. A survey of 5000 young people by global business consultancy Deloitte showed that nearly 80 per cent of workers in the Gen Y category believe innovation is essential to business growth but only 26 per cent believed their bosses were doing enough to encourage innovation.

"Summer has begun!  This is a great opportunity to reflect on the past year and to learn some new skills for next school year.  We will be starting a weekly book study of Dave Burgess’, Teach Like a Pirate on 6/17 at 8pm CST.  Burgess teaches cutting-edge strategies for skyrocketing creativity so that teachers will be able to design lessons to draw students into their content like a magnet. Readers will leave with the ability to create a classroom experience that will have students knocking down the doors to get in.

 

The book will have your mind racing with ideas that you can bring into your classroom immediately."

To encourage creativity, Mr Gove, you must first understand what it is | Manchester Guardian

To encourage creativity, Mr Gove, you must first understand what it is | Manchester Guardian | Creatividad | Scoop.it

By Sir Ken Robinson

 

"During a recent appearance on BBC's Question Time, Michael Gove, the secretary of state for education, extolled the importance of encouraging creativity in schools. He's right. Creativity is essential to the success and fulfilment of young people, to the vitality of our communities and to the long-term health of the economy. The trouble is that his current plans for the national curriculum seem likely to stifle the creativity of students and teachers alike. Consequently, anyone with a serious interest in student achievement, cultural vitality and economic sustainability should be deeply concerned."
