Measuring Creativity

  • David H. CropleyEmail author


A key feature of this book will be the analysis of the creativity of each of the 30 inventions chosen for analysis. This means that our focus is very much on the creativity of the product itself, as distinct from the personal qualities, thinking processes or environmental factors that also impact creativity. An important part of the discussion of each invention will be the task of assigning it a creativity score—answering the question how creative is it? This will help us to understand and appreciate what problem the invention was trying to solve, and the driving force behind the invention.
