Read Kelley & Kelley (2012) to reclaim your creative confidence. Next, consider the following research and then take the creativity test. Evidence suggests that one way to boost your imagination is by spending time in nature. A standard creativity test called the Remote Associates Test was given to four groups of backpackers as they were about to set off on a series of lengthy hikes. The test was also given to another group of hikers who had already been hiking for four days. The second group scored almost 50 percent higher in creativity than the first group.
How creative are you? Take the Remote Associates Test (RAT) at http://academic.cengage.com/collegesuccess/book_content/1413031927_santrock/ch05/ch05exe6.html. You have 20 minutes. Check your answers (but try to not cheat ahead of time). What is your percentile ranking? You may wish to try the assessment before or after you spend time outdoors. Do your own experiment! In your initial post, summarize what it was like to take the assessment, how you performed, and your opinion as to the usefulness of the assessment. Research on your own the reliability and validity of the assessment. Finally, appraise the usefulness of this assessment for an organization or a future research project.
