Conventional vs. Creative Intelligence


by: Orna Ross

conventional intelligence communicates through thoughts, concepts, opinions and ideas... creative intelligence communicates through feelings, emotions, imaginings and intuitions

conventional intelligence aims to control... creative intelligence aims to allow

conventional intelligence analyzes and critiques... creative intelligence plays and explores

conventional intelligence categorizes... creative intelligence disrupts

conventional intelligence looks out, seeing human reality as material and fixed... creative intelligence looks in, seeing human reality as imagined and co-created

conventional intelligence persuades through intellectual opinion and argument... creative intelligence persuades through story, symbol, and song

conventional intelligence consumes art, writing and music as entertainment... creative intelligence creates art, writing and music as expression

conventional intelligence likes answers... creative intelligence likes questions

conventional intelligence sees failure as avoidable and a defeat... creative intelligence sees failure as necessary and a learning opportunity

conventional intelligence deploys... creative intelligence devises
