The Creative Inventory.
Willings, David
The paper examines variables involved in creativity and suggests ways in which gifted adolescents may be helped to isolate conditions under which they get their best ideas. Among variables considered are the hypnagogic state (physical and mental condition just before sleep), the hynopompic state (physiological and mental condition upon awakening), the diurnal variation (times of peak activity), dreams, the "presque vu" experience (and idea on the brink of awareness), continuity of attention, simultaneous attention, distraction tolerance, postural conditons, and resumption. Examples of creative individuals and these variables are cited along with the author's own creative inventory. (CL)
