1.1 Definition:

To begin with it , the creativity is another of the qualities that is essential to the life of living beings. Keeping to the topic of human ability, it seems clear that all people are creative in a great or less extent, just like the intelligence and beauty.
When the concept of creativity is used in reference to language, it is as an adjectivethat refers to a person who is particularly talented in comparison to the average of the rest of the population.
A good definition of creativity is a component of intelligence, meaning a group of basic relational or elemental functions with a high association of reliability; that is a particular derivate of conditional intelligence. Strictly speaking, this last requirement is essential forintelligence; if the brain's functions responsible for creating logical relations often make mistakes, this would not be intelligence, but rather something else that is intuition, but, if mistakes were almost always made, this would be called a lack of these.
This group is formed by those functions that make the creation, design, invention, imagination, etc. of new concepts or ideas easily.
Thedemand of high reliability for creativity appears paradoxical because it does not seem that the same justification of gravity of possible error that we used for intelligence can be applied in this instance.
Not only is an error not considered something serious in creative processes, but mistakes are also considered normal. Nonetheless, given that creativity requires various successive operations to becarried out in order to exist, if errors are made by elemental functions, it is not very likely that the final result will be good; we may find new creations due to chance but not creativity.
However, we should not lose sight of the fact that an absolute conceptual definition of creativity is not easy, as we have also previously cited, language is precisely characterized by the contrary of this.The possibility that one of the important causes behind creation is due to a defective function in sensorial perception is widely accepted in regards to certain important artistic creations.
On the other hand, if we think about the specific subset of the functions of creativity, we will realize that they deal with particularly complex functions of intelligence; that is, if we were talking aboutmore packets of elemental functions in which all should operate with a high degree of confidence.
Therefore, it is not so much that the complex function (creativity) does not produce mistakes, but rather that the elemental functions or parts (intelligence) do not generate them.
1.2 The Creativity In The History

Creativity began about 40,000 years ago when our ancestors first made tools outof bone and ivory. Before that they just made do with whatever they could find. A rock for a hammer , a sharp stick for a knife. Once human beings began making things, they began to take control of their own destiny , thus embarking upon a path of intelligence and consciousness separating them from other animals. Human beings used creativity to survive and prosper, as well as to expressthemselves through art, music, and dance.
Human creativity grew steadily over the millennia until something rather interesting happened in the not too distant past, the Industrial Revolution. Creativity brought forth incredible scientific discoveries, including the invention of the steam engine which leads to railroads and factories. These changes did much to add convenience to our lives, but there wasone problem. People were needed to do the monotonous, non-creative jobs of operating the machines and working in the mills. Ironically, human creativity has gotten us to place where creativity itself was no longer a requirement for survival –– we could exchange our time doing a repetitive task for a day’s wages. Creativity became optional, some might say a luxury, and like an unused muscle,...
