Intuition and Creativity: A Pas de Deux for Qualitative Researchers.
Janesick, Valerie J.
The importance of intuition and creativity in qualitative research is discussed. By discussing lessons learned from well-known creative individuals, it is possible to find ways to open a conversation on creativity. Since the researcher is the research instrument in qualitative research projects, the definition of the role of the researcher is critically important. In addition to all that is already known about the researcher's role, it is necessary to go a step further. The extra step is to reflect on, describe, and explain the intuitive moments and creative moments in any given qualitative research project. (Contains 23 references.) (Author/SLD)
