creativity refers to the ability to produce something new and useful, both in the form of ideas or conceptual ideas, or works or tangible products that are relatively different from what already exists. some people believe that creativity is only owned by people who are highly educated. How do you think?

No, I don't think you need to be educated to be creative. In fact, some kinds of education can probably stifle creativity.

Nope. Creativity for me is both for educated and non educated. You can be in good profession and yet not creative at all. Creativity is our own uniqueness. It does not only comes from mind but also from the heart. We are creating something because we love to. I am not a college graduate but I can say i am creative because I make designs for bags. I got that talent that's why I used it to earn money.

Creativity is something that is innate. You could be well educated and have not one ounce of creativity. It's something you culture over a period of time. I know someone in my country that grew up poor and didn't go to college, but now he has a chain of hotels and some other entities that are doing very well.

I don't believe that at all. I know scads of people that are not highly educated but are very creative. I think having a very good education can help people with the technical sides of creativity. I that creativity is enherited and that you don't have to go to school to learn it.

Not really. Creativity can be owned by artists without any education whatsoever. I think what you're refering to is intelligence. People who study and complete their education attain intelligence in that specific field.

I think creativity is a gift.But there is absolutely no link between intelligence,education and creativity.I know of people who paint so well but they have hardly passed their fifth grade in school.I believe that when god gives one a handicap,then he also enhances another quality in one.handicap may not ne physical,or even mental.I would use it as a broader term for our inability to do seemingly common things well.I think the brain works in mysterious ways.It processes information so well, that once all the facts have been gathered,it does not take long to understand the nitty gritty of things,but creativity tkes this ability to the next level by providing unusual insights onto seemingly common situations.and for this,you need not have to be educated,alhough it does help.

Creativity is something unique and is a blessed technique and we can take as a gods gift. Vey less people are gifted with this boon. I feel proud to share you the message that I am also one amongst them. For me creativity is something spontaneously arrives to me And I do that and by HIS grace it is a total success. My friends praise me but I take it very easy and do not feel egoistic.
