The 1.5 Criterion Model of Creativity: Where Less Is More, More or Less
Smith, Jeffrey K.; Smith, Lisa F.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v51 n4 p281-284 Dec 2017
We argue that the future of creativity research should focus on the dual goals of the development of individuals with great creative genius as well as the enhancement of creative activity in society in general. To achieve these goals, we need basic research that will help us better understand the fundamental nature of creativity. We describe an approach to creativity that emphasizes novelty over utility.
