Creativity and Human Reasoning During Decision-Making

Creativity and Human Reasoning During Decision-Making | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it
"The results provide evidence that the human executive system favors creativity for compensating its limited monitoring capacity" explained Dr. Koechlin

 

In a new study, published March 27 in the online, open-access journal PLoS Biology, Anne Collins and Etienne Koechlin of Ecole Normale Supérieure and Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale, France, examine frontal lobe function using behavioral experiments and computational models of human decision-making.

 

===> They find that human frontal function concurrently monitors no more than three/four strategies but favors creativity, i.e. the exploration and creation of new strategies whenever no monitored strategies appear to be reliable enough. <===

Whoa, just whoa.   ThingLink is so cool and what a great way to densify creative products and engage a diversity of learning pathways!    I am going to include this in my next resume for sure.

12 Most Striking Tendencies of Creative People

Kim Phillips shares the 12 Most Striking Tendencies of Creative People.

 

Ever wonder what makes those wacky, creative types tick? How is it that some people seem to come up with all kinds of interesting, original work while the rest of us trudge along in our daily routines?

 

Creative people are different because they operate a little differently.

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:14 AM

This is particularly important for students with language learning differences--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...“There’s something about writing that is a link to your brain,” said Marissa Moss, author of the popular children’s book series Amelia’s Notebook. In the books, Moss takes on the persona of a little girl expressing her ideas about the world and people around her. The books are a combination of words and drawings and look free form – as though Amelia sketched them herself.

Taking a cue from Moss, teachers from Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, Calif., decided to have their students keep notebooks in a similar style. The notebooks aren’t graded; rather, they’re a place of private, free expression. Karen Clancy and Andrea Boatright presented the project at the Innovative Learning Conference hosted by the Nueva School recently.

“They’re not used to being given permission to write about whatever they want,” Clancy said. But once her students realized that they really weren’t being graded and that they had freedom of expression, they eventually came to demand time to write.

Moss says writing without fear of consequences is key to developing a writer’s voice. “If you’re perfect you are guaranteed to not write a thing,” Moss said. “It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the break.” She has developed some guides to help teachers coax students into using art and writing in their journals at the same time, as a way of flexing their visual thinking along with literacy...."

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it

"Geniuses produce because they think fluently and flexibly," says Michael Michalko in his book "Cracking Creativity."

 

"Fluency of thought means generating quantities of ideas." A key characteristic of genius is immense productivity. Thomas Edison held 1093 patents. Einstein published 248 papers. Darwin wrote 119 papers besides his theory of evolution. Therefore, if you want more creative/innovative thinking in your organization, you must encourage the generation of "quantities of ideas."

 

However, if you stifle creative thinking by sending subtle or not so subtle messages that "we must just spend our time doing things the way we have always done"...because they have worked, you'll never find a better more efficient method. Your innovative risk-taking competitor will! That's how Microsoft climbed to success passing IBM and why they know they have to continue investing mega-millions in R&D.

 

===> You must encourage people to think creatively and take risks. <===

How to unblock your creativity

How to unblock your creativity | Critical and creative thinking | Scoop.it

Are you experiencing a creative mind block?

We find that when we're stumped by a problem at work we need to read or see something that is completely random -- meaning it has nothing to do with the problem at hand.

 

For example, if you work in a business setting all day, take time to shake up your brain and look up information break dancing or how to drive a sports car or how to watercolor.
