Why Reconstructing Common Concepts plays a critical role in Creative Thinking
Being creative often first means being destructive. This strategy is about continually pulling apart common ideas and putting them back together in new ways . Creative ideas often come from joining two apparently unrelated ideas together. Finding the hidden link between two contrasting concepts can lead to powerful results. At the core of creative thinking is the concept of ‘Integration’, which is being able to join two diverse and separate elements together to make one combined picture. But our research shows that whilst children are naturally good at this, most adults find this strategy very hard to do.
The great inventors of new products are forced to think beyond the usual ways of constructing things to come up with new solutions that combine elements in different ways. But to ensure there is a productive creative output the final product must be more than sum of the parts combined. A great example of integration is the CQ Torrance testing. Very few of our participants in workshops can combine the 2 pictures and yet this is what creativity is all about. Effective Creative thinking is all about coming up with the next 1+1= 3
