Key to Creativity: Reduced latent inhibition

Creative inspiration is more likely to occur when people allow themselves to become vulnerable to the new ideas says Psychologist Dean Simonton, interviewed on CBC’s Ideas Program, the Idea of Genius. Creative ideas emerge when people can reduce their latent inhibition, the survival mechanism that judges ideas right away for appropriateness or fit.

Why is this important? Imagine having a day-to-day environment where people feel safe so they can become vulnerable for the purpose of using their creativity to advance innovation.
