Questions related to Creative Thinking
In your opinion, will a thinking artificial intelligence without human feelings be a more effective 'employee' in a company or a more effective and dangerous tool employed by a competing company?
Will the development of artificial intelligence technology help in terms of the management of business entities, public institutions, financial institutions, etc., and help to achieve the strategic business goals of certain commercially operating companies and businesses and perhaps public sector institutions as well?
The development of artificial intelligence may in the future lead to the creation of digital surrogates that mimic thought processes, artificial consciousness, emotional intelligence, etc. Many technology companies developing their business on the basis of new information technologies and Industry 4.0, which are being created and implemented in business, are conducting research to create new generations of artificial intelligence, which will be enriched with thought processes, artificial consciousness, emotional intelligence, etc. Some large technology companies that are also active online are working on creating their equivalents of generative artificial intelligence built in an advanced language model as ChatGPT. Internet users, companies and institutions are currently exploring the possibilities of practical applications of ChatGPT. The generation of this tool currently available online is already the fourth ChatGPT 4.0, but this is probably not the end of the development of this technology and its applications. In addition to this, some technology companies that are at the forefront of the development of artificial intelligence technology using various machine learning and deep learning solutions in conjunction with access to large sets of information and data collected on Big Data platforms are teaching artificial intelligence to perform various activities, jobs, solving increasingly complex tasks that until now have only been performed by humans. As part of these learning processes and the continual technological advances within ICT and Industry 4.0, leading technology companies are attempting to create a highly advanced artificial intelligence that will be capable of carrying out what we know as thought processes that have so far only taken place in the human brain (and perhaps in some animals). Perhaps in the future, an artificial intelligence will be created that is capable of simulating, digitally generating what we call human emotions, emotional intelligence. Perhaps in the future, an artificial intelligence will be created equipped with digitally generated artificial consciousness. What if, in the future, autonomous robots are created that are equipped not only with artificial intelligence, but also with digitally generated reactions that symbolise human emotions, are equipped with digitally generated thought processes, are equipped with artificial consciousness and behave as if they are also equipped with artificial emotional intelligence? Perhaps this will happen in the future. But the solutions that are currently being developed and the increasing applications of artificial intelligence that are emerging are devoid of typically human characteristics, i.e. thought processes within the framework of, among other things, abstract thinking, are devoid of emotional intelligence, human emotions and feelings, consciousness and so on. Will the rapidly developing artificial intelligence technology and also the rapidly appearing new and more numerous different applications of artificial intelligence technology solve many problems or will more new problems be generated? Perhaps a kind of thinking artificial intelligence will soon emerge, but one that does not have human feelings, e.g. empathy, in addition to having no digital equivalent of emotional intelligence. New applications for this kind of enhanced artificial intelligence will probably quickly emerge. Will it then be associated with the possibility of solving a multitude of problems, or could this kind of AI development generate new risks and dangers for humans? Technology companies pursuing this kind of technological advancement and improved artificial intelligence assume that a thinking artificial intelligence without human feelings can be a more effective 'employee' in a company. On the other hand, a thinking artificial intelligence being a more efficient and effective 'employee' may perhaps also be a more dangerous tool employed by a competitive company. The developers of these technological solutions usually start from the assumption that the development of artificial intelligence technology will help in the field of management of business entities, public institutions, financial institutions, etc. and will help to achieve the strategic business objectives of certain commercially operating companies and enterprises and perhaps also public sector institutions. However, we do not know whether this will be the case, whether the technological advances taking place in the field of artificial intelligence, the emergence of new generations of these technologies will generate only safe and positive applications for people, or whether new risks and threats will also emerge.
Counting on your opinions, on getting to know your personal opinion, on an honest approach to the discussion of scientific issues and not the ready-made answers generated in ChatGPT, I deliberately used the phrase "in your opinion" in the question.
The above text is entirely my own work written by me on the basis of my research.
I have not used other sources or automatic text generation systems such as ChatGPT in writing this text.

Thank you very much,
Imagine the situation that a new different but much more perfect version of something similar to ChatGPT is built, for which each person can ask only one question, what would that question sound like?
In the current era of rapidly developing information technology, the technology of Industry 4. 0, the era of the fourth or perhaps already fifth technological revolution, in the situation of rapidly developing artificial intelligence technologies, building more and more perfect robots and androids, which, equipped with artificial intelligence, can perform a variety of activities until recently performed only by humans and until recently widely recognized as such, which only humans can perform, many new concepts are emerging, full of admiration for the modern technology of new applications of artificial intelligence, but also many new or well-known for many years but now growing in importance concerns about the development of artificial intelligence, including concerns about the consideration of the possibility in the future that the development of artificial intelligence will escape human control. In the context of, on the one hand, admiration and, on the other hand, concerns about the effects and directions of artificial intelligence development in the future, new intriguing questions are emerging. New questions, which, having the character of intriguing questions, activating creative reflection, motivating critical thinking, play a special role in the development of science. For example, this kind of question:
Imagine the situation that a new different but much more perfect version of something similar to ChatGPT is built, for which each person can ask only one question, what would this question be like?
Does this question have such a character, does it activate creative reflection, does it motivate critical thinking? I hope it does.
Please give an example of a question you would ask for a built new much more perfect version of something similar to ChatGPT, for which each person could ask only one question.
Thank you very much,
For several years, scientists have been perfecting the technology of artificial intelligence to think like a human thinks. Is it possible?
Will it be possible to teach artificial intelligence to think and generate out-of-the-box, innovative solutions to specific problems and human-mandated tasks?
Is it possible to enrich highly advanced artificial intelligence technology into what will be called a digitised, abstract critical thinking process and into something that can be called artificial consciousness?
For several years, scientists have been refining artificial intelligence technology to think the way humans think. The coronavirus pandemic accelerated the digitalisation of remote, online communication, economic and other processes. During this period, online technology companies accelerated their growth and many companies in the sectors of manufacturing, commerce, services, tourism, catering, culture, etc. significantly increased the processes of internetisation of their business, communication with customers, supply logistics and procurement processes. During this period, many companies and enterprises have increased their investments in new ICT technologies and Industry 4.0 in order to streamline their business processes, improve business management processes, etc. The improvement of artificial intelligence technologies also accelerated during this period, including, for example, the development of ChatGPT technology. New applications of machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence technologies in various industries and sectors are developing rapidly. For several years, research and development work on improving artificial intelligence technology has entered a new phase involving, among other things, attempts to teach artificial intelligence to think in a model like that of the human brain. According to this plan, artificial intelligence is supposed to be able to imagine things that it has not previously known or seen, etc.
In the context of this kind of research and development work, it is fundamental to fully understand the processes that take place in the human brain within what we call thinking. A particular characteristic of human thinking processes is the ability to separate conscious thinking, awareness of one's own existence, abstract thinking, the formulation of questions within the framework of critical thinking from the selective, multi-criteria processing of knowledge and information. In addition, research is underway to create autonomous human-like robots, androids equipped not only with artificial intelligence, but also with what can be called artificial consciousness, i.e. a digitally created human-like consciousness. Still not fully resolved is the question of whether a digitally constructed artificial consciousness, which is a kind of supplement to a high generation of artificial intelligence, would really consist of a humanoid cyborg, a human-like android built to resemble a human, being aware of its own existence or merely behaving as if it were thinking, as if it were equipped with its own consciousness. Highly humanoid, autonomous androids are already being built that have 'human faces' equipped with the ability to express 'emotions' through a set of actuators installed in the robot's 'face' that imitate human facial expressions, human grimaces, representing various emotional states. Androids equipped with such humanoid facial expressions combined with the robot's ability to participate in discussions on various current issues and problems could be perceived by the humans discussing them as not only highly intelligent but also as aware of what they are saying and perhaps aware of their existence. But we still don't know that even in such a situation it could be 'just' a simulation of human emotions, human consciousness, human thinking, etc. by a machine equipped with highly advanced artificial intelligence. And when, in addition, an autonomous android equipped with an advanced generation of artificial intelligence is connected through Internet of Things technology, cloud computing to knowledge resources available on the Internet in a real-time formula, and is equipped with the ability to multi-criteria, multi-faceted processing of large sets of current information performed on Big Data Analytics platforms, then almost limitless possibilities for applications of such highly intelligent robots open up.

If one introduces lots of objects and problems previously designed for psychological studies of creative thinking to a system of machine learning like ChatGPT, will the system be able to generate novel original objects and problems to study creative thinking?
My answer—in 'Creativity of Creativity Researchers: Invention of Problems and Experimental Objects to Study Thinking' https://rdcu.be/cQoRK.
Yet the problem is open.
I would like advice on
The impact of science fair projects on student learning
I am a researcher and I would like to use this strategy in teaching science to students of 16 years of age on topics such as respiration, nutrition and other vital activities of different organisms such as plants, animals and micro-fauna
. I believe it has an impact on student achievement and encourages study and creative thinking
Is the process of thinking equivalent to the process of knowledge construction? How to distinguish the connection between the two?
If scientific thinking can be acquired by the child through his abilities and skills, but there are other types of thinking, such as critical, future and creative thinking .... When can he acquire these types of thinking?
Dear Colleagues and Friends from RG,
What are the main problems in the development of science?
What are the key problems of research development?
What are the limitations for research work?
What do you think are the main problems with publishing research results?
Are these financial constraints or other problems?
How can these problems be solved?
What do you think about it?
What's your opinion on this topic?
I invite everyone to the discussion,
Thank you very much,
This survey is a part of ongoing research to develop an empowerment index for architects in architectural education at the Department of Architecture and Regional Planning, IIT Kharagpur.
Your suggestions and opinions will make a valuable contribution to the research. I would appreciate it if you could kindly spare some of your valuable time filling out the questionnaire.
What do you think are the most important problems in computer science and computer engineering which if it will be solved would make a huge impact on technology?
what is it in your mind?
don't think that your idea might be stupid or not practical, just leave the message here, may be it help scientists and researchers to solve worlds problems and make our world a better place for everyone to live.
any literature that focuses on the role of place-based knowledge, cultural and/or occupational background in creative thinking, or similar capacity measurement tests?
Here is a question- Let's say you administered two types of Creative thinking tests to the same respondents. The tests share the same conceptual construct but only different tasks like the Torrance Test Creative Thinking-Verbal and the Torrance Test Creative Thinking-Figural. If you find significantly higher test scores by individuals on one test than the other, how do you know which of the two tests is likely a reliable measurement of the creative thinking ability of respondents?
We would like to understand the rationale behind the flexibility categories and zero originality answers creation for the verbal tasks of the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking.
What was the cut-off to determine which answers were considered as not original (zero-originality)?
How were the flexibility categories established ?
Also, some flexibility categories seem redundant, can we combine them?
I can see how pandemic has impacted creative abilities of both young and adult learners, by creating isolation from learning. It had negative effects on physical and mental health of students. Do you think that Creativity is consumed by corona? Would you like to comment upon this statement? You are most welcome.
It has become the demand of the time to prepare such global learners who possess a high level of awareness and consciousness. They are equipped with the abilities to well understand their own emotions, thinking pattern, and personality. This is the concept of meta-cognition. This sort of persons are most likely to understand the critical needs of the world to work with multiple problems of humanities. Kindly discuss if there are latest developed such framework for developing among learners meta-cognitive skills and abilities.
There are different definitions and references for these two types of thinking. However, the research that has been carried out and that is being disseminated common points and, in many cases, many differences. Since Torrance and Ennis it has evolved conceptually. How are we in 2020?
A major chunk of time of a researcher is wasted in activities supposed not to do by him/her and other tasks like multiple reporting, meetings, developmental and management works, etc. He/she gets less or no time for readings and creative thinking. A healthy discussion is needed on the issue ???
My research is examining the relationship between language switching frequency and creative thinking.
I am looking into creative thinking performances within two bilingual groups (Korean-English and Japanese-English). I'm trying to find a control that can match my participant's executive functioning so that I make sure the performances on creative thinking is due to the language switching frequency variable not because of enhanced executive functioning.
Background info: Studies have found that bilingual people have more enhances executive functioning, and that executive functioning could impact the performance on creativity.
I found the Verbal fluency test because it is very short and convenient to implement through the Qualtrics Software. This is where you would ask participants to come up with as many words as possible if I give them a letter. However, I realized that the tip-of-tongue phenomenon might interfere with their performance because it is more relevant for bilingual participants. Does anyone know how I could solve that issue or would it still be okay to use if its not as significant?
I want to find a short executive functioning test that takes less than 10 min because of the time restriction I have for my study.
Motivation and The Candle Problem
by Rhoads on August 13, 2013 in Motivation
Our world continues to move faster and is increasing in complexity. So what’s the best way to motivate people to think creatively and solve complex problems in a shorter amount of time? Let’s take a look at a study that examines this question.
“The Candle Problem” was conducted by Professor Duncker in 1945. Individuals are led into a room that has a table sitting against the wall. On it is a box of thumbtacks, some matches, and a candle. They are asked to attach a lit candle to the wall in a way that the wax won’t drip onto the table and to do this as fast as they can.
Many who attempted the test tried creative methods but were unsuccessful. Some took a tack and tried to pin the candle to the wall…but that wouldn’t work.
Others lit a match and melted the wax on the side of the candle and then tried to stick it to the wall …but, that wouldn’t work either.
Some, figured out that the real solution was to empty the box of tacks then tack it to the wall and place the lit candle in it.
Professor Duncker realized that people have difficulty in solving a problem when one element has a fixed function that must be altered. In this case, the problem solver has to be able to realize that the box is not just a container for the tacks, but that it can also be used to hold the candle on the wall.
To demonstrate this point, he repeated The Candle Problem again with new participants, but this time he placed the tacks next to the empty box. This time the problem solvers could see that the box’s function was not directly tied to holding the thumbtacks. As a result, virtually all the participants were able to solve the problem with relative ease.
The Candle Problem becomes even more intriguing when you add a monetary reward to the task which is exactly what a professor of psychology, Sam Glucksberg did in 1962.
Glucksberg took a set of new participants and split them into two groups. He told the first group that “the person to complete the problem the fastest will receive $150, and if you are in the top 25% of fastest times you’ll receive $40 (values adjusted for 2013 value).” To the other group he did not offer a monetary reward, but still asked them to solve the problem as fast as they could.
Then he split those groups up and half of each group faced the problem with the tacks placed outside of the box, and the other half faced the problem in the more complex way with the tacks placed in the box.
You’d expect that those who were given the incentive of money would solve the problem faster and in fact that is true when the tacks were out of the box. More of the participants in the group that was incentivized by money solved the problem and with faster times than the other group.
However this was not the case when the problem was given in the more complex way with the tacks placed inside of the box. In this case, those who were not incented by money performed better than those who were offered money.
Glucksberg found that adding the variable of competition for a monetary reward creates levels of stress that shuts down the creative thinking and problem solving areas of the brain.
This finding can have huge implications on the reward model that many organizations use today. Many organizations use an “if – then” motivation model, meaning if you do this, then you get that. While directly tying financial incentives in an “if – then” format to simple tasks can be effective, tying financial incentives in this format to complex tasks that require creative thinking will actually have a negative impact on performance.
This viewpoint was popularized by Daniel Pink in his book Drive where he unpacks the concept of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. The main premise of his book is that you when you hire people to do complex and creative work, you need to motivate them with autonomy, mastery, and purpose rather than the carrot of a financial reward. Pink is clear to point out that money is still very important…however for this type of work, organizations should pay their employees very well and not tie it directly to the result of their creative work because that would only decrease their performance.
So if you lead a team or are trying to figure out how to motivate people to do something, think about the type of task that is being completed and if it complex and requires creative thinking, understand that using money as a reward for performance on this type of work will actually decrease the quality of the work you are trying to incite.

The Candle Problem – Wikipedia
This is a general philosophical question which isn't related to any particular study/paper I'm working on.
Do you think these two cognitive abilities are related? If so, in what way/s? If not, why?
Can you just assume a situation with no figures or data to back it ? Is it reasonable?

I'm a student researcher from the Philippines and I'm looking for a free manual of the Torrance Test for my research about the relationship between personality traits and creativity. I kind of need it immediately. I'm hoping someone can help me.
Good day, everyone.
Is there any necessary, useful literature in Neuroscience, Cognitive science which studies creativity ? I will be able to use EEG in order to study brain activity. Can EEG help to identify patterns of creative thinking ?
Any literature suggestion would be very appreciated.
Thank you so much .
What is the significance of postdocs ?
How industries see the Postdocs ?
Do you have any idea of how it may impact the following -
What are Health effects ?
How it effects sustainability ?
Is there any study on growth impacts ?
What about energy and environment ?
How it impacts the ecology and environment ?
How it impacts the local economy ?
What, in your opinion are the salient characteristics of a head in a school for guiding and coordinating staff? How can you inspire, lead and organise staff of different ages and backgrounds?
As a supreme organ, brain requires special care. Food definitely gets first priority. But this is not enough to keep our brain healthy. If we do not keep our brains active with creative thinking and practice, it will not remain idle, instead will engage in bizarre thinking that will ends up with bad impact on it.
Let's join to this discussion how to make our brain healthy.
I intend to conduct a quasi-experiment in my research between 2 classrooms, one group delivered with ICT tools and the other with augmented reality (Aurasma app as supplemental material ) to find out which group has enhanced the achievement and creative thinking skills among students much more?
I wonder If I asked them to utilize the Aurasma app in their home then what should I teach them in the classroom although I stated clearly that the second group will be taught through an augmented reality app? I think there will be an overlapping between the two concepts: (the mobility of AR) and (the flipped learning) in case if I taught them with AR within the daily lesson.
I will be grateful for who can clarify this ambiguity?
My best regard
I would be interested in resources that pertain to how identity or the different roles we possess in dance making (dancer, teacher, spectator, mentor, etc.) influence creative processes in creating choreography. I am particularly interested in social dance, but any dance style examined with this research question in mind is warmly welcomed!
Thank you in advance!
Many researchers are coming up against theoretical and practical limits to their investigations and experiments. Einstein, Bohr and many other scientists have used dreaming as a way of scaffolding, testing and creatively thinking about problems to help them see perspectives that remained otherwise hidden.
Are you a scientist of consciousness, matter, physics, brain function or sleep who is hungry for new perspectives? If so, then you may find the recorded lucid dreams at the back of my research based book "Dream Physics" thought provoking.
I am intending to conduct a study entitled: "The effect of Augmented reality as an instructional tool in enhancing students' creative thinking skills".
There are numerous technological tools have contributed to promoting students' creative thinking skills such as ICT tools, google platform, WhatsApp, gaming, animation and so... but to the best of my knowledge, there is not a published study in the open lit proves that (AR) can help in enhancing creative thinking skills.
Now, my question:
Since I have no evidence so far proves that AR can foster creativity among students, would you suggest me to stop examing the effect of AR or keep it up? and if not so how can I justify that in my research?
My best regard
I am so interested in knowing if there is evidence proving that Aurasma app can help in promoting the creative thinking skills among students?
Thanks in advance
My topic is: The effect of augmented reality based- teaching material in enhancing students' academic achievement and creative thinking skills among primary student.
In this study, I m attempting to design AR booklet for the experimental group through using the five phases of ADDIE model. I have been told that in order to adopt this model there must be a need to inject my 3 research theories (constructivism- Guilford theory - situated learning theory) into the model.
1- Do you think these selected theories are best fit into my 3 variables under investigation?
2- If so, how to inject these theories into ADDIE model?
Thanks in advance

Greetings Dear Experts,
I humbly appeal to you to spend about 10 minutes of your time to respond to the survey on developing TVET students to think critically. As we already know, developing creative or critical thinking is one of the crucial objectives of higher education worldwide and the TVET in particular. However, current research in the field suggests that TVET students in different countries of the world have difficulties thinking critically. Therefore, developing critical thinking skills is of major concern in contemporary educational research. This survey is interested in information on how to enhance students` critical thinking through teaching. The main emphasis is on teaching methods and assessment in TVET.
To respond to the survey, please visit https://goo.gl/forms/7PYP26s7tPcptRGX2
This will not take much of your time.
I sincerely look forward to receiving your responses.
Everyone is imperfect, yet as I observe each generation of students pass through my classroom there seems to be a perceivable rise in "perfectionism" - not so much from parents, but from the students themselves. This is detrimental to developing a solid foundation for creative designers. Plus, it is a false notion based upon a rigid, conditional mindset. Creative thinking must make room for imperfection and making mistakes along the path of improvement. I consider making mistakes as being different from mismanagement and recklessness... and I realize the irony of the question; there is no perfect answer. But, are we teachers perpetuating perfectionism? What about the value of making mistakes in teaching and learning?
Sir, Can I know how to link creative thinking with gamification sir. As, I am very much interested in doing it with the Indian background.
I am working with different tests so that I can make comparaissons, thus the more validated tests you may suggest on creative thinking, algorithmic thinking, the best.
Thank you for your time.
There are information that we know that we don't know, and there are info.that we don't know we don't know. So, the second type is what bothers me! Everyday I see/read info.That I didn't know I didn't know, and this info.is essential to some degree..So I was wondering what scientific journals are dedicated to the scientific method, scientific thought, and metacognition so one can approve his technique and don't miss important info.
Critical mindsets are based on freedom as a corner stone for freeing man from blind obedience to ready set orders. It's to be organized not irresponsible, ( John Hogan 2005, p 97) it's being precise not excessive, the type of freedom that provides the suitable environment to prosper innovative and creative thinking that has nothing to do with accusing others of being non-believers, sin committers, betrayers, blackmailers, or accusing them of exercising marginalization or exile, a type of freedom ( Dana Kay Nelkin 2011, p 36) that would grant individuals liable choices without any external pressure or authoritative command, where obstacles are overcome to reach tangible and theoretical achievements. Man was born free; accordingly he should be fully aware and responsible for his choices. Freedom is a natural right, not in need for further evidence or proof, as it is an original part of the human structure, but at the same time it doesn't mean to contradict reality or losing disciplines, it stops once it confronts others' freedoms, as pointed by Voltaire. It is self reforming as evident in the right of expression, movement, making living, ( Edward Peters 1989, p 341 ) transportation and showing opinion. It's also a group reformer in seeking liberty from suppress, exploitation, control and oppression as that exercised by occupying forces upon a certain country or state. It is the free will that is based on man's making of his own choices concerning life, deciding destiny, acceptance and refusal, a freedom that deals with reality in a rational way, where we find responsible interaction and obedience for laws in return for acquiring man's right in possession, opinion and decision, according to John Luke.
Freedom is the only appropriate surrounding that enables thinking, interaction and guarantees social development. All efforts are in vain if society is not freed as whole, from sectarianism, partisanship, tribal alliances and all other secondary affiliations to remain adhered to the basic and effective belongingness, the state.
Tyranny and absence of freedom had its dire impact upon scientific action in Europe, where the church controlled most of the scientific and intellectual activities, imposing strict supervision upon thinking and innovation, setting the crime of being a disbeliever as a ready allegation against those who care to think, to the extent that trials were set against any attempts in the direction of change(paul Ehrlich 2000, p395) . The most eminent victims then were, Copernicus, Galileo Galileo, who was forced by the authority of the court to state that earth doesn't turn around itself, and Isaac Newton for his gravity theories and laws.
Even co-workers do not assist the researcher whose financial condition is poor yet meritorious in most of the cases. Various people make fun of the situation and enjoy. Do you ever feel it? Share your opinion in this free and prestigious platform........
I need to create a test to measure the development of creative thinking skills in the precalculus course. Can anyone help me?
Evalute the design studio physical environment to know what the relation between them is student creativity
This study is trying to see if co-operative learning approach can improve 21st century skills (critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creative thinking aka Four C's) in learners and I think it should be learning theories (or theories from education field) but my knowledge in learning theories is limited because my background is Information Technology(IT) / Information System(IS) as such I'm more familiar with IS theories.
There is little research done on STEAM integration (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) in schools. I have heard people saying that the arts doesn't belong with the STEM subjects, but we all know that the Arts (music, dance, drama, visual arts and media) enhance creative thinking, innovation and higher order thinking skills - which would then be an asset to these subjects. Does it belong in schools and can it exist without eroding the Arts as stand alone subjects?
I was thinking the creative thinking of the child from his birth How the observe the things and when they reach up 2 to 3 years of age they start asking of Questions from their parents Like Scientists why,who and how...?And I observe most of children break the toys after playing few days But I can't find the complete answer So I want to try ask the Question from the Researcher for A better Answer And Finding the conclusion...
I am carrying out a research on “Postgraduates’ perceptions of the usefulness of Web 2.0 applications to facilitate collaborative learning in their university". The aim of the research is to investigate which Web 2.0 tools are used generally by post graduate students of various disciplines and to assess their usefulness as well as to explore how the collaboration of knowledge can be made productive in collaborative learning.
Problem in academic critical thinking skills: is it a thinking problem or language problem? I'm looking for any published/research papers which discuss this issue.
I am now studying reflective thinking skills that are currently not very popular. I've got a lot of feedback the results of discussions on this forum about the interwoven process of critical thinking and creative thinking in reflective thinking skills. I'm now also thinking that interwoven thought processes are included in meta cognitive thought process. But I still doubt, meta-cognitive thought process is defined as thinking about thinking, while reflective thinking is thinking about the result of thinking? What do you think?
Interested in articles which describe psychological research in the area of design and invention.What diagnostic procedures should be employed for the analysis of creative thinking in this case?
Does someone who have a critical thinking ability will also have a creative thinking ability? Or these two thinking ability were different each other? Someone who can think reflectively must hold a critical and creative thinking ability. Is this correct?
I am working on how service design can contribute to the evolution of Directories and Signages. I would like to make an evolutionary path of directories and how it changed through years. Identifying the key elements of directories in a time period from now to 5 years will be very useful in my design process.
I will be glad if you have some knowledge or material to share with me.
In order to fully exploit the potential of existing knowledge plus supporting the generation of new knowledge, it is crucial to design spaces to foster innovation and knowledge generation processes. From an (interior) architectural point of view, these processes are influenced by social, organizational, emotional and technological factors which led to a holistic understanding of architecture.
Efficiency implies adherence to standards and processes (like ISO standards, SOPs, SMPs, project management methodologies and so on). Can an organization, which is too hard wired to systems, encourage creative thinking and facilitate innovation?
I want to know if the brain generates the ideas itself by thinking or if it is ultimately linked to the ideas in that field of spoken and discussed ideas. Because the spoken words and statements makes a cloud in the universe, to which we are linked, is full of ideas to which we pay deep attention. The work of brain is confined to just making the deep concentration, but is it so that brain generates the idea itself?
Plenty of work has been done on learning styles, but "learning" is only one type of information processing. For example, decision making is a different process (I think). What research exists concerning "thinking styles"?
I am preparing the lecture about Mednick's test RAT. It was constructed in 1964. I feel that I should comment on this theory adding some information from neuro science perspective. I would be grateful for help:)
In our trip looking for the truth, does researching depend on philosophy or needs logic, and on the other hand, should all facts depends on logic?
It is cited that creativity is at odds with logic. If we believe critical thinking to be based on reason and reason to be based on logic, then it seems that critical thinking is nothing like creative thought. However, 'good' critical thinking often involves looking at things from a different perspective, which seems to involve elements of creative thinking. Can anyone clarify for me?
I was recently told that performance is not scholarship because I'm merely playing what someone else wrote. I strongly disagree as the performer brings scholarship to the process of music performance. I am not only interested in your thoughts on that, but more, how does your institution accept/or not creativity as scholarship? Also, it would seem to me that "getting the call" for a performance, either because of your reputation or because you submitted a recording, would serve as peer review, but my institution says no. Thoughts?
Folks, here is a typical scenario for me: I work so hard for a research proposal, and it looks good, but that one "punch line" is missing ... Something really creative that will make the proposal stand out ... I think about it all night, NOTHING. So, I go to sleep.
Tomorrow, I wake up, and after doing a few things, go back to the proposal, and it just CLICKS. Boom. The creative thing I was trying to find is right there ... It is as if aliens abducted me in my sleep, took me to Mars, where they showed me their already existing solution :) This must have happened to you folks too. How can you explain this ?
Ok, since the "Alien abduction theory" has serious scientific holes in it :) we might turn to neuroscience to find an answer for this phenomenon:
*** Sometimes, when rational thought is abandoned, creative work seems to happen by itself (Koestler 1964).
*** While during conscious processing, a large portion of the brain is involved, fMRI studies show that, only the sensory areas are active for automatic (motor) processing (Schneider 2009).
What these studies suggest is that, there are two Tolga's in my brain: TOLGA-C (conscious TOLGA, which does its work by conscious deliberation), and TOLGA-M (motor TOLGA, which does unconscious -motor- processing). When we are subjected to a very difficult problem and stop thinking about it, we are initially using TOLGA-C, and when we stop paying attention, TOLGA-M still continues to solve the problem and eventually it might solve it before TOLGA-C ... So, creativity might get help from TOLGA-M through unconscious processing.
So, if creativity can benefit from such a motor skill, does this mean that, we can practice it ? Just like soccer ? In other words, by timing THINK/STOP patterns, can we train TOLGA-M (the motor part of our brain) to help us be more creative ?
