Creativity is a rare form of genius possessed by only a few people. It comes from some outside source and you cannot control it.  We know so little about it.



Creativity is an elusive phenomenon that evaporates or vanishes if you try to look at it too closely or study it in depth. It is believed it to be ethereal or a gift bestowed on a few.



Creative behavior is bizarre, bordering on mental illness.  Creative individuals are strange, odd, and weird. It is viewed as an anti-social or unhealthy behavior.



Creativity involves trickery, not substance. It’s like watching a magician performing and being in the audience trying to figure out the “trick.” Many think they cannot work the “magic.”



Creativity involves behavior that is totally spontaneous and undisciplined. It doesn’t happen with any forethought or planning.  It is used to entertain and surprise us.
