The secret to creativity, intelligence and scientific thinking: Being able to make connections - - The Buffer Blog | Whole Brain Thinking | Scoop.it
When we shared this image from the @buffer Twitter account recently, it got me thinking. The Tweet resulted in over 1,000 retweets, which somehow was an indication that a lot of people seemed to agree with this statement.
David Ednies insight:

Combinatorial creativity or internal conectedness. That’s is the ability to connect experiences we've had and synthesize new things. And the reason we were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or we have thought more about our experiences than other people.

Sue Reed's curator insight, March 17, 2014 7:49 AM

Connecting our experiences to new scenarios is what this is all about...

Pavel Barta's comment, April 2, 2014 1:14 AM
We live in the world where an information of almost any kind is at your finger tips, There is lots of free and good (and bad) information out there. The key question is: how can I make knowledge out of information, and even better, how can make the knowledge I have gained into wisdom by being able to connect the dots (and be creative and innovative system thinker?). Do we see the big picture, and if we do, what do we do about it?
