Intelligence does not by necessity equate to being creative.
Some of the most creative people on earth cannot even read or write; perhaps they are also the most intelligent?
I find it frustrating that people get so hung up on labels, he is creative, she’s not creative etc. It’s like we are forming some kind of exclusive club that satisfies a few and alienates many.
In my experience scholarly intelligence often impedes the creative process primarily because it’s always so damn keen on finding the right answer.
There is no right or wrong in the creative process SIMPLY endless roads waiting to be explored.
Scholarly intelligence is put into a person (learned) but creativity is simply allowed to flow out of a person.
