  18. TORRANCE KIDS • In1958, four hundred children completed creativity tasks designed by professor E. Paul Torrance • The children were asked “How could you improve this toy to make it better and more fun to play with?”

  19. Those who came up with more good ideas on Torrance’s tasks grew up to be entrepreneurs, inventors, college presidents, authors, doctors, diplomats, and software developers. • Jonathan Plucker of Indiana University recently reanalyzed Torrance’s data. The correlation to lifetime creative accomplishment was more than three times stronger for childhood creativity than childhood IQ.
