    1. What is creative intelligence?

    Cognitive psychologist Robert Sternberg proposed a triarchic theory of intelligence:

    - Analytic Intelligence--the type generally assessed by intelligence tests; measures the ability to break down problems into component parts.
    - Creative Intelligence--the ability to cope with new situations and solve problems in new and unusual ways. Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, but imagination circles the world."
    - Practical Intelligence--Common sense. Using and implementing ideas (http://greenroomthoughts.blogspot.com/2007/11/elusive-definition-of-intelligence.html).

    Sternberg argued that to grow your creative intelligence, it is done by questioning assumptions, taking sensible risks, and allowing yourself to make mistakes (http://greenroomthoughts.blogspot.com/2007/11/elusive-definition-of-intelligence.html).

    It is interesting what Albert Einstein had to say about intelligence: "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life thinking it is stupid." (http://greenroomthoughts.blogspot.com/2007/11/elusive-definition-of-intelligence.html).
