What Is Creativity?

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

According to the dictionary, “Creativity” is:

the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.”

With synonyms such as:

  • Individuality
  • Imagination
  • Innovation
  • Originality
  • Vision

I would go on to say that creativity is the act of approaching our human experience with curiosity, seeking novel ways of expression, and pushing the boundaries of what has been done.

In exploring the definition of creativity, we see that it is not limited to art. Coining a new phrase, wearing unique clothes, joining words together, finding a solution to a problem, scheming new theories from disparate subjects…these are all expressions of creativity. Likewise, we are all creative because it is our human nature. Just because you cannot draw or play music does not mean you lack creativity.
