The Adept finds this support in professional shamans of creativity, a kind of "priestly caste", if you like, that this cult has produced.

The intensity of the rituals is important

Overview

As we know from other religions, these shamans exert a great authority and are less measured by the success of their actions than by the intensity of their rituals.

It was thus observed that deserved decision-makers with serious faces and an unwavering firm commitment to the highest performance go into the hands of high priests of creativity.

Creativity Techniques - Faith Moves Mountains?

Overview

Willingly, they undergo rituals with frightening names such as "brainstorming" and "constellations" and can be "headstand" and "negative methods" systematically rob the mind - for a handsome fee, of course. Faith is known to move mountains ...

Rituals create team spirit, are impressive, sometimes effective, and above all reassuring - from toddlers to the supervisory board. But does this way lead to more creativity? Or even creativity?

Efficient creativity according to plan

Overview

Efficient creativity according to plan within a given time window - with results, of course - is as ridiculous as an operational analysis during a carnival evening.

You can not learn creativity like yoga, golfing or business English - creativity is innate and used by everyone on a daily basis. It is an integral part of our thinking and serves to come up with new solutions - solutions that we can not draw either from our habit or from our wealth of experience.

Everyone is creative!

Overview

This takes place daily, on a large and a small scale. Whether it's making plans, lending a nickname, or inventing a credible excuse. Even when maneuvering in a crowd, where you avoid collisions step by step without any right of way.

Creativity is part of the standard equipment of the human genus - anyone can develop it and implant it into their professional lives. Like everything else, you can train and optimize your creativity. You can learn to pay attention to your perceptions.

The creativity of selling things to people they do not need, such as creativity

Overview

You can practice association, that is to say under the premise "What if ..." to reconnect information. And you can train the handling of inner pictures and develop your pictorial thinking. Maybe not without help, but certainly without hocus-pocus.

Once you have perfected your creativity, the world is open to you. It is well known that people are selling things that they do not need. But it is a remarkable genius empire, and it is the greatest creativity to sell people things that they themselves have in abundance. For example creativity.

The Mystery Chefetage

Overview

After courageous expedition teams have pushed themselves into the last corners of Africa, one might think that the cultures and religions of this planet are now being explored nationwide. Far from it - our executive floors still offer all kinds of undiscovered. Practically on our own doorstep, in the heart of our big cities, amazing new cults have evolved.

A particularly fertile breeding ground for all kinds of cults was found in the isolated, sparsely populated and generally inaccessible urban heights, popularly called Chefetagen.

The new Trinity - Logic, Return and Shareholder Value

Overview

There, researchers have recently encountered some rituals in connection with a cult that has been practiced in secret, apparently coexisting with the prevalent and widespread belief in the trinity of logic, yield, and shareholder value.

It is noticeable that prescribed are exercised only behind closed doors, the occupants of the executive floors, however, under the condition of the success in detail publicly profess. We are talking about a so-called "creativity".

The mantra of the ingenious ideas

Overview

The followers of this cult believe in the creation of a - unspecified - "new" and live in the conviction that through this creativity ingenious ideas and innovative products like manna rain from the sky.

As is customary in beliefs, the disciples of this cult love to boast about their creative actions without further defining the subject of their worship. Instead of definitions, there are only a number of myths that reflect the cornerstones of their beliefs and are considered fundamental dogmas.

Enlightened by the Holy Spirit of Creativity?

Overview

One of these myths - presumably a particularly fundamental myth - says that the Holy Spirit of Creativity can be found in the believer's right brain and can be activated and invoked there.

To his incantation, certain rituals, which are intended to effect a transient, complete elimination of the understanding under the symbolic sacrifice of rationality.

The sacred inspiration

Overview

Once the heretical mind has been shut down, the adepts suddenly direct bloodstreams instead of financial flows, right into the defenseless right half of their cerebrum.

In this state, patient inspiration is expected, which is the highest goal of the cult. This inspiration is regarded as the source and the most important infusion of ideas.

The god of rationalization

Overview

A ceremonial baptism, on the other hand, is completely unknown. For reasons of rationalization - a deity that plays an important role in all the known beliefs of the executive floors - one is, instead of being baptized, inspired directly and directly.

In this way, the highly esteemed creativity is ritual summoned. On this topic, our researchers also found a common and meaningful myth, which has a natural or specific "uncreativity" of each believer to the content.

    Dear Mr. Traub, first of all, what an invigorating and original contribution, with his intellectual volts, between what man brings with him, what he would like to be, and whether and how he can accomplish this. They are perfectly right, that dictated creativity, aggravating on the basis of efficiency considerations, is a contradiction in itself. Creativity comes from freedom, freedom from thought and associations.

    Nevertheless, I would like to contradict you on one point or say, not contradict, but instead of a "either" or "an" either "or" think variant. They write: "... undergo frightening methods such as headstand technique ... .." and question whether these instruments generate creativity, but later in your post you say: "... you can continue to train your pictorial thinking".

    This is exactly what m. E. the function of such methods as headstand, Walt Disney, the hats after de Bono etc ... .to serve as a tool to train creativity, of course, they can not evoke creativity. The gifts we bring as human beings can, however, be very well trained, we can also be said to be cultivated;

    a human being has, for example, a writing desk, stylistic nuances such as the writing of essays and commentaries, features and reports with their respective individual structural features are learning processes. The instruments already mentioned above are no longer, and no less, the creativity process,
    very cordially Katharina Daniels

    • Wolfgang Traub

      Dear Mrs. Daniels, a gloss does not want to be fair and your contradiction is only too justified. I often only experience a confusion of path and goal when it comes to "creativity". Although effective and well-accepted methods such as headstand technology inevitably lead to short-term successes, they distract attention from the actual goal. From which - if I may put your words in a different context - "both-and" thinking variant, which gives the creative thinking a solid and appropriate space alongside the daily rationality.

      Man is naturally creative for me. And to use this creativity to make use of it requires a number of learning processes, and you are completely right. With these learning processes, that is to say a deliberate handling of perceptions, with symbols and with complex systems, people often have difficulties - especially when they define themselves as rationalists. They shrink from the step of even turning their thinking upside down for a short time.

      The frightening headstand is better avoided. And with it, unfortunately, every involvement in real creativity, the everyday, healthy supplement to the analytical mind. Certainly, creativity methods are more than a first aid in the coma of ideas, but also meaningful pioneers, but they should not be confused with "creativity" as such. This requires a little more "cultivation", a term whose pictorial clarity in connection with human gifts I would like to thank you very much.
      Sincerely, Wolfgang Traub

      Thank you very much for
