Creativity and Learning Styles

What is creativity? Encyclopaedia Britannica defines it as: "Ability to produce something new through imaginative skill, whether a new solution to a problem, a new method or device, or a new artistic object or form. The term generally refers to a richness of ideas and originality of thinking.

Although psychological studies of highly creative people have shown that their learning styles lean heavily towards the holistic and disorganised, they've also noted that this lack or focus of a highly right-brained individual may stand in the way of success. No matter how original your idea, you have to implement and finish it in order to be truly creative. 

So what other Learning Style Pyramid elements do you need to be creative?

  • an Integrated Learning Style (holistic as well as analytic)
  • high persistence 
  • high responsibility
  • self-starter
  • self-directed
The Creative Learning CEO, Barbara Prashnig, was recently chosen to feature on photographer Allan Johnston's book on creative people.
