Key for scores
90% - 100% Extremely Creative—Creativity is a natural part of your life and you have no problem integrating it into your work life.
80% - 90% Very Creative—You are probably most creative in response to the problems you encounter, rather than it being a skill naturally used in every part of your life.
70% - 79% Creative—You are creative and know how to implement it. However, there are self-imposed limitations (and probably organizational barriers) that prevent you from routinely using it in problem solving and challenging opportunistic situations.
Less than 70% Creatively Challenged—You are probably creative in practice, on occasions.
All scores could benefit from a creativity course, but anyone scoring 90% or below would particularly gain value from the course. Please e-mail or call us with any questions that you have about the self test or the creativity courses.
