Wired to Create

by Scott Barry Kaufman

Wired to Create

Scott Barry Kaufman

Overview

Being creative isn't a skill to be developed like woodworking or mathematics, it's a messy process covered in a spider web of methods and outcomes. Creative people don't have any consistent individual traits that differentiate them from ordinary people. Each of them is inhabited by a multitude of sensitivities and contradictions.

Scott Barry Kaufman is an author and cognitive psychologist whose research focuses on creativity and human potential. Carolyn Gregoire is an author and creative strategist who specializes in psychology, spirituality, and creativity.

In Wired to Create, Kaufman and Gregoire unravel the messy minds of creatives and offer lifestyle choices that may unlock anyone's inner creativity.
