Creativity is a personality trait believed to be inborn. Some are born more creative than others, however, the environment plays a great role in the development of creativity. Robinson (2005) says there are some misconceptions about creativity. “The assumption is that real creativity is an exceptional capacity that’s limited to people of rare ability… [Nevertheless,] in reality, we are all born with tremendous creative potential.” Thus, if everyone has the potential to be creative, it is important to check what can influence its actualization.
