Mapping your creative potential?

December 11, 2015

How great would it be if we could better understand our own and the society’s creativity potential, in order to stimulate and incubate it – for greater output, performance, and happiness in solving our pressing problems in the world!?

Vibrant Data Labs with Eric L. Berlow and colleagues just published the “Hacking Creativity” project, supported by Red Bull. It shows the largest empirical study on global creativity of 500+ people from the creative sectors and provides an visualization of such data using network analysis and visualization tools from complexity science.

I just took the 30 questions online survey on and can now compare myself with other creative people and their profiles:

I belong to the emerging clusters of “novelty seeker”, “optimist”, “inspired by and in nature”, and “generalist”. I get inspired by being in nature and moving around, as a kinetic person. So the walk/run/bike/ski/surf/kayak/climb in nature is what triggers my creative potential best. I can dive into the degrees of the network data and explore what helps me to become creative. Form this I can better design my days and nights to get the most out of my potential, both in terms of output but also for happiness and relaxation.

I took one of my university classes to undertake this survey to learn and reflect about how we can best design learning processes – more flexibility and the application of the full set of didactics are necessary.

Take your survey now and see how your creative potential can best be triggered.
