Specifically, we used the odd number of the last three series of matrices (Jaeggi et al., 2010; Corgnet et al., 2015a). A. The models with the best fit (Table 2) report a positive linear relationship of convergent thinking (RAT) with both Raven (p < 0.01) and CRT scores (p = 0.03), which is consistent with the positive and significant correlations reported in the previous section. To the original CRT questions, we added four questions recently developed by Toplak et al. Reflection and reasoning in moral judgement.

These are skills (or cognitive abilities) that require using the brain to process information. This result suggests that the significant effect of CRT scores on convergent thinking is driven more by cognitive ability (basic computational skills are also necessary for solving the CRT correctly) rather than by reflectiveness.

It is innovative because there is a need to understand processes which are not recognized unless one is specifically interested in creativity. We measured divergent thinking using a variant of the Alternate Uses Task (AUT; Guilford, 1967). Wiley, J., and Jarosz, A. F. (2012a).

Invitations to participate in the current study were sent to a random subset of the whole database. When I use the term “skill," I don’t mean that creativity can only happen to those who have mastered it. Can you give an example of an innovative project assigned to you and how you handled it? Finally, we do not find a significant correlation between cognitive styles (CRT scores) and any measure of divergent thinking (all p's > 0.26). To address this point we need to assess the relationship between cognitive skills and creativity. As mentioned, past literature arrived at conflicting conclusions regarding whether executive cognition favors (e.g., Nusbaum and Silvia, 2011; Beaty and Silvia, 2012; Silvia, 2015) or hampers (e.g., Eysenck, 1993; Kim et al., 2007; Ricks et al., 2007; Norris and Epstein, 2011; Jarosz et al., 2012; Wiley and Jarosz, 2012b) creative thinking. PloS ONE 7:e43957. Creativity and cognitive skills among Millennials: Thinking too much and creating too little. Psychol. As shown in columns [5] and [6] of Tables S3–S6, the effect of Raven on the divergent thinking measures remains virtually identical when controlling for CRT, which indicates that cognitive reflection does not mediate any of these relationships. Perhaps there is a particular task you have always done a certain way. Direct. The effect of Raven on flexibility appears to be slightly U-shaped in Figure 1 but the regressions do not report any significant linear or quadratic relationship (all p's > 0.22; see columns [1] and [2] in Table S5).

All subjects completed the same tasks in the following order: (1) CRT, (2) Raven test, (3) Remote associates task, (4) Alternate uses task. Inquiry 4, 147–178. This suggests that thinking too much may hinder important dimensions of creative thinking. Consider using the STAR method to address behavioral questions like these. There are ways you can incorporate your creative nature into every stage of the process, from your resume to interviews. Front. Cognitive reflection has also been found to play a key role in moral judgment (e.g., Paxton et al., 2012; Pennycook et al., 2014). This includes the building blocks of cognition such as perception, reason, memory, inhibitory control, attentional control and cognitive flexibility. (2015), we also analyze non-linear effects and find an inverted U-shape relationship between cognitive reflection and our measures of flexibility and fluency on the divergent thinking task. You may wonder why you do a task a certain way, or why you have to follow specific procedures. Raven, J. C. (1936). (2002). 12, 215–226. Psychol.

This can help you remember the things being said. The bad news for recruiters is the inverted U-shape relationship between cognitive reflection and fluency and flexibility measures of divergent creative thinking. Evidence from a recent survey reports that managers are three times more likely to hire a mature worker than to hire a millennial (born between 1980 and 2000; Rainer and Rainer, 2011) despite desperately needing their creative talent1. Whatever it is you are working on, whether a project, idea or a task, describe it in a picture or a series of pictures. Along these lines, it would be interesting for future research to test the effect of cognitive manipulations such as cognitive load, ego depletion, priming, or time pressure/delay on creative performance. Cognitive skills therefore refer to those skills that make it possible for us to know. doi: 10.1016/j.intell.2010.11.002, Oechssler, J., Roider, A., and Schmitz, P. W. (2009).

The way someone approaches a task might give you ideas of how to help someone else who performs a similar task. We encourage future research to explore possible ordering effects. doi: 10.1080/13546783.2014.895915, Basadur, M. S. (1995). This result is of primary relevance to hiring managers who may want to rely on cognitive reflection as the main criterion to recruit diligent (Corgnet et al., 2015b) and creative millennials. Used in combination, they can be effective in helping you think differently about a problem or a task. Our results suggest that cognitive reflection, that is the disposition to override automatic responses related to Type 1 processing and engage in Type 2 controlled thought, has a complex effect on divergent thinking. 14, 301–305. J. The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. Unlike Barr et al. They have more to do with the mechanisms of how we learn, rather than with any actual knowledge. Another look at creativity and intelligence: exploring higher-order models and probable confounds. dures for strategic thinking, and much of creative thinking is strategic. Table 1. These useful active listening examples will help address these questions and more. Subjects had 6 min to complete each task and a 2-min break after completing the Raven test. Many experts believe creativity is something comprised of a set of cognitive skills. Evans, J. S. B. T. (2008). In an article rich in ideas and information they argued that effective “real world” leadership occurs in situations where the leader has knowledge, experience, and creativity nurtured through experience. Recent studies have shown that hiring diligent millennials requires selecting those who score high on the Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT) and thus rely on effortful thinking rather than intuition. Watching how people work can inspire you to think of ways to help them be more efficient. Contrary to the results observed with Raven, we do not find any significant linear relationship between cognitive styles and divergent thinking (all p's > 0.28; see column [3] in Tables S3–S6). The full distribution of correct answers by males (mean ± SD = 4.09 ± 2.31) and females (mean ± SD = 2.89 ± 2.03) is provided in Figure S1. doi: 10.1016/j.intell.2013.03.003, Kahneman, D., and Frederick, S. (2007). Yet, although there is an obvious link between intelligence and executive cognition, from the point of view of modern dual-process theory (Evans, 2008, 2009; Stanovich, 2009, 2010; Evans and Stanovich, 2013), one should distinguish between algorithmic and reflective cognitive processes. 16, 57–66. They include: When you are creative, you find connections between different ideas and use those connections to solve problems. We construct four different measures of divergent thinking: fluency, originality, flexibility, and elaboration. Available online at: SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract = 2799850, Chermahini, S. A., and Hommel, B. Mental Tests used in Genetic Studies: The Performances of Related Individuals in Tests Mainly Educative and Mainly Reproductive. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill. Psychol. The findings of the current study demonstrate that a short training (i.e., a single training session of just 1.5 h), which develops cognitive skills necessary for creativity, can have an impact on creative performance. Wiley, J., and Jarosz, A. F. (2012b). The relationship between our cognitive measures and divergent thinking is more complex. Participants were instructed to provide as many unusual uses of a pen as possible during 6 min. Psychonomic Bull. Algorithmic processes are typically associated with computational efficiency and are measured by standard intelligence tests whereas reflective processing is associated with a disposition to employ the resources of the algorithmic mind, that is, to switch from autonomous “Type 1” thought to analytic “Type 2” (working memory-dependent) thought. Even if it doesn’t directly affect your creativity, it can improve your mood, which may put you in a more creative frame of mind. Psychol. Make a change to the way you normally do things. Kim, K. H., Cramond, B., and VanTassel-Baska, J. Subjects with an average level of cognitive reflection tend to produce more answers and use more categories than those subjects characterized by either a more intuitive or a more reflective cognitive style. Creativity 101. In addition, future research focusing on state-level analyses of the role of intuition vs. reflection in creative performance is necessary to assess the robustness (and causality) of our trait-level findings as well as deepen our understanding of the cognitive basis of creativity. At least, not without considerably greater effort. The cognitive and the non-cognitive skill tests together gives a stronger, clearer and a much more comprehensive picture of an individual. Exp. To address this point we need to assess the relationship between cognitive skills and creativity. The associative basis of the creative process. Cognitive skills are the skills and abilities for thinking that we develop from early childhood through to old age. Be sure to use specific examples and emphasize how the company benefited from your solutions. There are several kinds of creative skills that you can practice to become more creative in the workplace. We then run ordinary least squares regressions which allow us to test the statistical significance of the linear and non-linear relationships which were shown in the LOWESS graphs. Gen. Psychol.

However, we find a significant inverted U-shape relationship of CRT with both fluency and flexibility, as reported in Table 2 (p < 0.01 and p = 0.02, respectively). Also, our sample consisted entirely of undergraduates, with a limited age, education, and income range. Thinking Reasoning 21, 76–96.

J. Econ. Rev. For the data analysis, we start by showing the descriptive statistics of all the measures used and their zero-order correlations. Whether or not you can teach creativity is routinely debated, but there are studies that suggest creativity is innate and the structure of formal education may aid in its removal. Behav.

In addition, we observe a positive effect of fluid intelligence on originality and elaboration measures of divergent creative thinking. 79, 845–851. You can discover fresh ways of doing things by observing the world around you. Being in a different environment or experiencing something for the first time can also create connections that help you view tasks differently. Controlling for Raven does not alter these relationships (p = 0.01 and p = 0.02, respectively; see column [6] in Tables S4, S5), which again indicates an absence of mediation effects. (2008b). “Distinguishing the reflective, algorithmic, and autonomous minds: is it time for a tri-process theory,” in In Two Minds: Dual Processes and Beyond, eds J. S. B. T. Evans and K. Frankish (New York, NY: Oxford University Press), 55–88. It bears repeating that we don’t have two brains; we just have one, of course, and we use it for reading and math and everything else we do. Beyond its connection to basic cognitive research, our findings offer insights to managers in search for the creative talent of millennials. Pers. The results of this new wave of research on creativity and intelligence have been taken as evidence that executive cognition is undoubtedly beneficial to creative thinking (Silvia, 2015). (1993). Here are some suggestions for highlighting creativity skills: Communicating your creativity skills on your resume is a good idea no matter the job title, level or industry. Subjects with a higher Raven score tend to generate less uses (lower fluency), although these are more elaborated and original. A., De Dreu, C. K. W., Rietzschel, E. F., and Baas, M. (2010). Often, creativity involves lateral thinking, which is the ability to perceive patterns that are not obvious. Educ. Stat. Frames and brains: elicitation and control of response tendencies. Specifically, creativity involves cognitive processes that transform one’s understanding of, or relationship to, the world. Evans, J. S. B. T., and Stanovich, K. E. (2013). Alcohol 51, 114–122. Our measure of convergent thinking is the number of problems correctly solved (from 0 to 13). Descriptive statistics and Pearson correlations. The relationships are represented using locally weighted smoothing (LOWESS) techniques. Toplak, M. E., West, R. F., and Stanovich, K. E. (2011). Although these models do not have a straightforward mapping onto dual-process models of cognition, the interaction between Type 1 and Type 2 cognitive processes may play a different role in different phases of the creative process. Br. Non-cognitive skills are again related to motivation, integrity, and interpersonal interaction among individuals. 11, 45–46. When you need that information later, your brain also uses cognitive skills to retrieve and use that information. Talking and working with people who view the world differently can help you gain new perspectives when approaching your work. Spontaneous eye-blink rates and dopaminergic systems. doi: 10.1080/10400410701841807, Silvia, P. J. This might involve reorganizing your office space or even moving to a different office. Cognitive skills are often acquired through performance of tasks requiring classification of novel stimuli; whereas the examples discussed earlier involved development of new perceptual categories, the tasks discussed here are more abstract. Psychol. It is merely a specific kind of knowledge. Describe a time when you took an existing process and improved it. Being creative sometimes allows you to challenge accepted or conventional wisdom. Yet, the effects are larger for more extreme CRT values. 39, 262–283. A meta-analysis. To the extent that eye blink rates reflect dopaminergic activity (Karson, 1983), which is in turn linked to inhibitory control (Cohen and Servan-Schreiber, 1992), our results are in line with the finding of Chermahini and Hommel (2010). Add to library View PDF. Creativity Res. J. Psychol. Creativity Res. Unsurprisingly, we find moderate positive correlation between the number of correct answers in the CRT and Raven tests (r = 0.26, p < 0.01) which suggests that CRT and Raven are not entirely measuring the same cognitive skills (Frederick, 2005; Stanovich, 2009, 2010).

Cognitive skills include perception, attention, memory and logical reasoning. All participants provided written informed consent prior to participating. From this perspective, one can conjecture that cognitive reflection may relate negatively to creativity. That’s my take in reading a piece on the World Economic Forum titled This is the one skill your child needs for the jobs of the future. Science 229, 828–833. Creativity and intelligence revisited: a latent variable analysis of Wallach and Kogan (1965). A., Barr, N., Koehler, D. J., and Fugelsang, J. doi: 10.1111/j.2044-8295.2007.tb00467.x. Schmidt, F. L. (2009). However, the relationship between cognitive skills and divergent thinking is more complicated. Theta oscillations are sensitive to both early and late conflict processing stages: effects of alcohol intoxication. Kim, K. H. (2005). Figure 1. Working memory is the part of your brain that hosts all your cognitive skills. As expected, males performed better in the test than females (Frederick, 2005; Bosch-Domènech et al., 2014).

To some extent, cognitive reflection may be necessary to shift between the generative and evaluative processes involved in the production of new ideas. Dual-process theory can reconcile these apparently conflicting findings by positing that creativity may be generated by a mix of Type 1 and Type 2 processes (Allen and Thomas, 2011; Ball et al., 2015; Barr et al., 2015; see Sowden et al., 2015, for a review). On average, sessions lasted for 45 min.

The information on this site is provided as a courtesy. For example, if the job description states that the ideal candidate can quickly solve problems under pressure, consider when you’ve used creative thinking skills to navigate complex issues and come up with solutions to solve them. One essential implication of our study is that thinking too much may hamper important aspects of divergent creative thinking. 71:191. doi: 10.1037/0022-0663.71.2.191, Howard-Jones, P.

Organizations crucially need the creative talent of millennials but are reluctant to hire them because of their supposed lack of diligence. Traditionally, intelligence, and creativity have been considered to be unrelated (Getzels and Jackson, 1962; Wallach and Kogan, 1965; Batey and Furnham, 2006; Sawyer, 2006; Weisberg, 2006; Runco, 2007; Kaufman, 2009; Kim et al., 2010).

The test is characterized by the existence of an incorrect response which automatically comes to mind but has to be overridden in order to find the correct solution. Creativity is a valuable workplace skill because it can be a useful tool for developing new ideas, increasing efficiency and devising solutions to complex problems. Interestingly, the effect of Raven on RAT remains significant (p = 0.02) if we include both Raven and CRT scores as predictors (see column [5] in Table S2) whereas the effect of CRT becomes non-significant (p = 0.15).
