I thought taking a little creativity test would be fun. This test has 40 questions and will take you about 15 minutes to complete. – http://www.testmycreativity.com/
You can see the results right away and you do not have to enter an email address. The results will present eight different traits or metrics. I measured high on complexity, abstraction, perspective, and persistence and low on connection and boldness. I agree with these findings! These traits help me to be a creative thinker because I think beyond the initial answer or solution.
In what areas did you score high and low? Do you agree with the findings? How do these traits help you to be a creative thinker?
