Everybody is creative, to some degree, in one way or another. The degree is often determined by the level of creativity attained as a child and the positive feedback you had during those formative years drawing ponies for your mom’s refrigerator.
In fact, 98% of children measure as divergent thinkers – people who can generate a volume of ideas in a short amount of time. Yet only 2% of adults score as divergent thinkers.
So, the question poses itself, what happened to their creativity?
