Divergent thinking and…. What it is.

by Ajay Rajaram

I realized that I had made a few posts about divergent thinking and that I never really posted anything that actually talked about divergent thinking and its significance. Also, owing to the principle of duality, you have probably figured that if divergent thinking exists, then so does convergent thinking. And you would be right.

Here’s an easy-to-read article that discusses both types of thinking and how they are believed to influence creativity.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a little, just a little, obsessed with the idea of convergent vs. divergent thinking.
