All tasks require creativity, whether they be routine activities or more complex procedures involving imaginative or original thought. Scientists describe two main types of creativity as “Big C” creativity which involves high-order cognitive processes associated with artistic masterpieces or scientific discovery and “Little C” creativity which involves problem solving during everyday activity.
