Becoming More Innovative M any out-of-the-box thinkers share five mental traits that promote  creativity, what are they?  Associating  – a cognitive skill that allows creative people to make connections  across seemingly unrelated questions, problems, or ideas.  Questioning  — an ability to ask “what if”, “why”, and “why not” questions that  challenge the status quo and open up the bigger picture.  Observing  — an ability to closely observe details, particularly the details of  people’s behavior.  Experimenting  – innovative people are always trying on new experiences and  exploring new worlds.  Networking  — creative people are really good at networking with smart people

Unformatted text preview: who have little in common with them, but from whom they can learn. Don’t have time to devote to all five mental skills? Focusing on questioning may pay outsize dividends : “We’ve found that questioning turbo-charges observing, experimenting, and networking.” Don’t think you can get away with completely ignoring the other skills. The researchers also found that “questioning on its own doesn’t have a direct effect without the others.” For those interested in learning more, the interview is a fun, fast and informative read .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
