OP 18. Cognitive Processes in Creativity

By John R. Hayes

Summary: Hayes discusses characteristics of creative people and cognitive processes involved in creative acts. He argues that differences in people's ability to define problems or to recognize opportunities for creative solutions have their origin not in innate cognitive abilities but rather in the motivation and hard work of the creative person. January, 1990; 15 pages.
