Our age of digital disruption has opened a cornucopia of creative endeavors, but the ability to multitask may also hinder creativity.
In a recent global study, three-quarters of respondents said their creative potential is being stifled. More than 60% of American said their education systems squelch creativity, and a majority of total respondents said pressure at work hurts creativity. Yet 80% of respondents worldwide said allowing creativity to flourish is critical to economic growth.
Those numbers come from a recent survey of 5,000 adults in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France and Japan. The study was commissioned by software giant Adobe.
But the study’s findings do indicate that people worldwide feel unfulfilled creatively.
