My (Evolving) Definition of Creativity
Show Notes Chapter Markers

On this solo episode of "Creative Space," we recap creativity definitions we've explored so far in past interviews and I share my own core beliefs about creativity, which can be found in this blog post as well—although my perspective has already expanded a bit.

We also dive into a 1968  longitudinal study by researcher George Land that evaluated creative genius in 1,600 school children at age 5, age 10, and at age 15. The results may surprise you.

Finally, we explore an idea that crossed my mind about creativity over the course of  interviews conducted so far: could there be distinct stages to creativity?

Would love to know your thoughts. And if you have suggestions for interview subjects, feel free to reach out via my website or social media.
