Dr. Jung gave a talk on Monday entitled Creativity and Genius. From the title of his talked I believed like most that Genius or intelligence was linked to heightened creativity. From Dr. Jung's talk I have learned that they may be interrelated but not connected. During his talk he first explained about the lies associated with creativity. Creativity does not rely on Intelligence and explained that simply because Einstein was a genius does not link him to creativity. We side tracked onto IQ test and Dr. Jung explained they are a good source of predictability of intelligence. They can predict income, longevity, and education level but, he went on to explain that this is only at or above the age or eight and only in Western Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic groups.
Dr. Jung gave us the definition of creativity: "Production of something novel and useful within a social context." Then we discussed what it takes to be creative and that is: You need many ideas even though they may not all work it is the amount of ideas you have that will help you to increase your creativity. And finally he gave us the five P's. Prepare, Practice, Play, Produce and Persevere. Respectively, one must collect ideas to put together in novel ways, 10,000 hours or 10 year is required to become an expert, unstructured cognitive activity or downtime is required, one must put many ideas out in the world, and lastly keep trying and failing and trying!!!
