Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking | Creativity | Scoop.it

RSA Animate recently released a video called 'The Power of Outrospection'. The video intrigued me and this post has helped me pull together some of my thoughts about the links between empathy and creativity.
The post explores empathy in a variety of fields, including design, human services, and the creative fields, and the video is also embedded in the post. Take the opportunity to read the post, watch the video, and ponder how empathy allows us to be creative as we look for new solutions for whatever issues we face.

How To Unlock Creativity

How To Unlock Creativity | Creativity | Scoop.it

"Do you know this guy on the left? Of course you do! The man, and in particular that photo, are icons. They represent creativity itself.

Yet Einstein is both an inspiration and an intimidation. His legend, unfortunately, has obscured much his story’s true value. He was, in many ways, unexceptional, but nevertheless managed to see the world differently and led others to do so as well."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 3, 2013 9:41 PM

Creativity is a word that is often used when we speak about education today. We are told that we need to help our students be creative. The question is how to do this and there have been many articles published about this. 

This post notes that Einstein was not "a good, if unruly, student. He studied physics intensely, worked towards a doctorate and sought out a job as an ordinary physics professor." The important part of that statement is "He studied physics intensely..." 

Many people who we define as creative work intensely in one field, so intense domain knowledge is one key.

Other aspects discussed in this post include the ability to cross domains and persistence.

The final sentence reads "Creativity comes from combining ordinary things in extraordinary ways."
