creativity and bacon

One past extensive research about creativity asked the question “What are creative people like?” concluding, creative people:

  1. work very hard;
  2. are more disposed to setting their own agenda and taking independent action;
  3. strive for originality;
  4. show more flexibility;
  5. don’t have higher IQs … No cognitive abilities have been identified which reliably distinguish between creative and non-creative people.

And to question “What cognitive factors are involved in creative acts?” research concludes:

  • Years of preparation essential for creative productivity;
  • Goal setting is critical in creative acts.

And what is creative perversity? It is cologne, salt, vodka, mayonnaise, gumballs – all made of bacon.
