A Creative Life: Is it all about curiosity?

Some psychologists claim that creativity peaks in early adulthood. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyl is a psychologist who offers strategies for

increasing creativity in one’s life. He claims that creative people regularly experience a state he calls flow, which is a heightened state

of pleasure experienced when they engage in challenging tasks that absorb their interest. Csikszentmihalyl claims that the first step in

achieving a more creative life is through curiosity and interest. Do you agree with Csikszentmihalyl that curiosity and interest can lead

to a more creative life? Do you think heredity plays any role in creativity? Why or why not? What other factors may lead to heightened

creativity in early adulthood? Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.
