Highly creative people are different from each other.

Finding the right question isn’t an answer.

You want to find an element that is perfect for your situation. One of the first reflexes of your mind is to find a way to solve the problem.

Instead of helping you find the best solution, this attitude can reduce you to a single negative perspective to your creativity. This problem-solving attitude can stick you to a single framework of problematization.

The second group would take some time to examine the objects, picking them up, turning them down, and changing their arrangement while working on their composition The first group would quickly pick out the objects they wanted to work on.

The second type of student was more creative because they were able to keep their arrangements open and ask questions. The works produced by the latter group were judged more favorably by the judges than the works produced by the first group.

If you want to avoid getting stuck in one way of asking a question for your problem, always try to find other questions that are more relevant to your situation.
