Transcript of Creativity and Metaphors

Explaining creativity step by step How to measure Creativity Definition of creativity Creativity can be defined as the generation of novel and useful products (Sternberg, 1999)
Huge definition!
Many ways to measure!
Higher sensitivity

Lower filtering system
Less D2 inhibition in thalamus
(Manzano et al. 2010)

Genes for this effect

Hard to handle all the info? Creative Cognition The mixing stage!

IQ threshold of 120 (Njää)

High WM

Flexible control

High levels of Inhibition Conceptual blending

What basic components do you need to blend.

1. An object/information
2. An object/information
3. Mixer
4. Output Findings DLPFC & VLPFC

DLPFC important for WM

VLPFC important for Inhibition Meta- Analys Producing creative metaphors, like producing creative responses to divergent thinking tasks, involves several executive processes Other perspective!

"theory up" approach Using Metaphors in problem solving Conclude no conclusions can be drawn! Reliability

Different ways of measuring the concept!

How can I put all this information together? Then I found the book! So what? A theory please! Definitions again! Three step theory Process metaphors.

The mind is like a computer.
Using tools within metaphor to solve problem and then go back!

Training is like baking...
A mental mapping in which knowledge from one domain of experience (the target) is understood in terms of information from a different and usually more structured, domain. Conceptual metaphor Information
Output Problem with measuring Jumping to many steps ahead!

Explain one mechanism at the time and fit in to a bigger model

Easier to find the "knowledge gap"
