Assessing Creativity

In my class last night we were discussing creativity- what it is, how it's measured and by whom, who is likely to be creative and whether or not we thought it could be "learned". One of the more interesting things I learned is that the most creative people (Think Einstein, Edison, etc) did not have loving parents who pushed and encouraged. Instead, they had somewhat indifferent parents and spent a great deal of time alone. Hm, not really what I expected.

Just thought that was interesting....

Maybe they found their own 'worlds' to fill their time, which would make them more creative...a need to be filled.
