Creativity as a whole entity, or a single field to be studied, is composed of four parts or strands. They were described by Rhodes (1961) as being: understanding the traits, characteristics or attributes of the creative person; describing the operations or stages of thinking used in the creative process; identifying outcomes and qualities of creative products; and examining thenature of situations and itsÇ context within the creative press (or environment). The above figure illustrates how these four strands can stand alone but how, by their nature, they operate almost always as a synthesis of two or more simultaneously. In fact the most complete picture of any one of the 4PÇs can be best viewed when considering the influence on it by one or more of the others. With that said however, a close look at each of them individually will perhaps promote a better understanding of what they are. It will also give a clearer vision of why they are considered a viable framework for studying creativity.
