Are you a conformist or an individualist and free thinker? Being a free thinker is a key principle of creativity. Its primary aim is cultivating the ability to challenge that which is, towards finding new and creative solutions.
In the earliest part of the previous century already Albert Einstein predicted that the world will not evolve past its current state of crisis (changes, threats, and challenges) by using the same thinking that caused it. It is necessary for every individual, educational institution, and organization to cultivate the ability to think creatively towards new and novel thinking. Unfortunately, this does not happen as regularly as it should.
