Imagine: Anyone can be creative

Mashable reports:

New research is beginning to shed light on the science behind creativity and imagination. As it turns out, anyone can be creative.

“Creativity shouldn’t be seen as something otherworldly. It shouldn’t be thought of as a process reserved for artists and inventors and other ‘creative types.’ The human mind, after all, has the creative impulse built into its operating system, hard-wired into its most essential programming code,” writes Jonah Lehrer in his new book, Imagine: How Creativity Works. …

The message of Lehrer’s book is that creativity is not a super power. Anyone can be creative — it just takes hard work.
