to the need to be creative since all the time we are thinking about certain things:- either to make our  lives better or to solve some pending problems or issues. Creativity does not have to be about  developing something new to the world, it is more to do with developing something new to ourselves  with a view of making our situations better. When we change ourselves, the world   changes with us  both in the way it affects us and how it is affected by our changed actions.  Creativity can be used to open up understanding and make the product of thinking and its processes between the sources and recipients better, least to mention that it can be used to create them in the  first place. It is expected that increasing our creativity will help us, our institutions, organization and  global interactions more transparent and lead to an improvement in the quality of our thinking output. Creative thinking is the process which we use when we come up with new and constructive ideas. It  is the merging of ideas which have not been merged before. Brainstorming is one form of creative  thinking: it works by merging someone else's ideas with your own to create a new one. It entails  using the ideas of others as a stimulus for our own mental growth Creative thinking process can be accidental or deliberate. Without using special techniques, creative thinking still occurs, but usually in the accidental way; like a chance happening making you think  about something in a different way and then discovering a beneficial change. Other changes happen slowly through pure use of intelligence and logical progression. Using the accidental mode of  creative thinking is chancing with human progress whereas the use of a logical progressive process  often produces desired products to develop and improve upon. In an accelerating and competitive  world this is obviously advantageous and positive. b) Critical Thinking There are various definitions of Critical thinking. The definitions vary according to the motivation  underlying it. When grounded in selfish motives, it is often manifested in the skilful manipulation of  ideas in service to one's own, or one's groups', vested interest. As such, it is typically intellectually  flawed, however pragmatically successful it might be. When grounded in fair-mindedness and  intellectual integrity, it is typically of a higher order intellectually.

    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.
