I used to think I am not creative and can never come up with any creative ideas because I don’t have a talent for it. I thought I was much better at logical thinking. However, I have learnt some techniques for how to approach the creative thinking process logically and was able to become more creative as a result.Misuzu, Creative Problem Solving, Japan
