Divurgent thinking is an essential capacity for creativity.  It’s the ability to see lots of possible answers to a question, lots of possible ways to interpret a question…to see multiple answers, not one. [For example] How many uses can you find for a paper clip? [Researchers] tested this, and gave the test to 1500 people in a book called Breakpoint and Beyond, and on the protocol of the test, if you scored above a certain level, you’de be considered to be a genius in divurgent thinking…98% of kindergarteners scored above genius level.
