  1. Are Women more Creative than men?? Rohit Mehar

  2. Creativity • Creativity (or creativeness) is a mental process involving the generation of new ideas and concepts, or new associations between existing ideas or concepts • Different interpretation in behavioral psychology, social psychology, cognitive sciences, business and management • Attributed to divine intervention, cognitive processes, social environment, chance, traits

  3. Research Definition • Creativity is a function on intelligence and lateral inhibition • Higher the intelligence, lower the latent inhibition, higher the creativity and vice versa • For constant lateral inhibition, Intelligence has direct impact on creativity

  4. Its Controversial!!! • Larry Summers, President of Harvard University outlined these hypotheses • High Powered Job hypotheses • Variability Hypotheses • Discrimination Hypotheses • Lost his job, intelligence can’t be more crucial than discrimination??

  5. Interesting Research • Dr. Paul Irwing, based on SAT scores of 20000 people – • Mean difference of 5 IQ points in favor of men • Twice as many men with an IQ of 120+ • Thrice as many men with an IQ of 170+ • There is no difference below age groups of 14 years • Difference increases as the age increases

  6. Interesting Research • Skewed distribution in favor of men • Makes a bold statement that “Men have bigger brain than women” • Many researches done on the same lines giving similar results

  7. Counter Facts • Ever diminishing variability • Ratio of boys and girls who scored at high ends reduced four times in 20 years • SAT scores depends heavily on career choices • Discrimination and Institutional disadvantages are the major reason (NAS)

  8. Why this can’t be settled? • Only IQ scores cannot differentiate men and women (What else then??) • History speaks (applies for both, more pertinent in case of men but) • Latent Inhibition is not constant • Left Brain – Right Brain (Intuition does not mean creativity) • Any other view??

  9. Fostering Creativity • Building motivation, especially internal motivation • Encouraging confidence and a willingness to take risks • Promoting supportable beliefs about creativity • Providing opportunities for choice and discovery • Providing balance
