    The ability to take in and process information is no doubt important to creativity, but I think 'divergent thinking' is more important. Someone could be a great divergent thinker but could have trouble with problem solving and reasoning.

    I would choose having high creativity which just so happens to entail having a high level of intelligence.

    I don't respect creativity without the cost-benefit analysis to back it up. If we're talking about something, like art, that doesn't require analysis to produce well, I can appreciate it but I'll leave it to other people. I do actually have artistic leanings, but I don't really have the temperament to be committed to it.
    Ultimately, I prize my analytical skills more than self-expression or originality.
    I don't wanna!

    ^^I think that's a false dichotomy.
    Artes, Scientia, Veritasiness

    I'd rather be a creator than a learned regurgitator.

    Artists > Critics

    Synthesis > Analysis

    Induction > Deduction

    IMHO, a better ditchomy here would be Intelligence vs. Wisdom.

    As for this one: I guess if one wants to define "Intelligence" as largely meaning abstract logic, then I'd prefer creativity.

    I'm already highly intelligent and not very creative, so...I guess I'll just stay the way I am.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Its important to make an environment very creative friendly

    or maybe im nostalgic for the internet boom. the last time i remember when society developed on creativity. haha
