Note: Layer in diverse experiences

Note

Researchers Edward Necka and Teresa Hlawacz compared bankers and artists in an effort to understand their differences in creativity.

What made the artists most creative was a tendency toward activity, a tendency to initiate numerous activities that lead to, or provoke, rich external stimulation.

This richness of input creates a corresponding richness of output, as creatives who score high on activity tend to have many diverse experiences that may be used as a substrate for divergent thinking and creative activity.
