The act of coming up with an idea to solve a problem. The problem may be given to you or you may have created the problem, thus being truly creative. Creativity is a valuable commodity when it is very strong, when weak it is something that people think they have but never really show. Creativity is the mother of invention and the Mothers of Invention were creative. If you wonder about it's worth, think about Velcro and how it's inventor got the idea by looking at thistles.
