The Psychology of Inventing: Overcoming Obstacles and Finding Inspiration
A common stumbling block to creativity is homeostasis, or the desire to be "just like everyone else." This is the unconscious fear of failure that keeps people from trying new things.
A good way to combat this is to try to think of things differently than you normally do. This is called conceptual expansion, and it's a great way to improve your creative abilities.
One of the most interesting areas of cognitive science is how we perceive the world around us, including our imagination. Studies have shown that people who are familiar with specific examples of objects in the world can often stunt their creativity because they don't think about things from a different perspective.
Inventors are characterized by the ability to see and understand new ideas. They also have an intuition that can help them create useful inventions.
Curiosity is the first instinct to invent. This instinct interprets life in terms of problems - problems that call for solutions and answers. Invention occurs when the instinct takes action to find solutions and answers.
The curiosity instinct, which is a part of the limbic system, interprets human experiences in terms of problems that require solutions and answers. The curious mind then seeks out the answers to those questions and tries to figure out what to do with them.
It's important to remember that this process is not always easy, but it's well worth the effort. The result is a new artifact or process that can help us in our daily lives.
Invention is a complex and layered process. It usually begins with a basic idea, then evolves into multiple incarnations until it is fully realized.
To achieve the goal of creating a new artifact, inventors need to work in teams. This is why it's so important to build relationships with team members who have similar interests and talents.
During brainstorming, everyone should be able to share their ideas and opinions freely. This ensures that the ideas generated will all be relevant and helpful to the team as a whole.
When team members aren't able to share their ideas, it can be difficult to come up with new and innovative ways of solving a problem or solving a creative challenge. To overcome this obstacle, it's important to set aside time for brainstorming, even if you have a limited amount of time available.
