- there is a template for solving it: a grid - you x off people who cannot be married to each other - if you don’t know how to do it it would be very overwhelming - jane is dick’s sister so they aren’t married -problem: (mental set) - fluid intelligence; ability to look at problem and come up with a solution without being constrained with your notion of what thins are for or what is normally done - some people climb the chair and think if they are closer to the top it would help.. - you need to think of the wrench as a weight which is the difficulty... -must realize that the match box can be functioned as a table... Functional fixedness: -mental set Creativity Across Cultures -the western view : the ability to produce work that is novel and appropriate; an observable product. Creativity involves a break with tradition - Amabile: a social judgment (society values more things than others; a new way to cross my arms is not considered creative) - The Eastern View: a state of personal fulfillment, the expression of an inner essence or ultimate reality. In Hinduism, ex, Creativity involves the reinterpretation of traditional ideas, because time and history are seen as cyclical (less essence on novel but more on prior) - not all cultures are concerned with the speed of processing as US is - deliberation/care emphasized in some cultures, in ours you get points if you guess an answer that you don’t actually know (guessing on multiple choice and getting it right) - all of these point to the important differences in conceptualizing intelligence Creativity - thinking outside the box: - expand the problem space, don;t take limits that don’t exist - don’t impose restrictions that do not exist - don’t be limited by functional fixedness - use alternate representations - time and place for creativity (don’t want your architecture to think outside the box) Oct. 14, 2010

    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.
