Dr. George Land and Beth Jarman developed a highly specialized test to measure creative potential of people within NASA. The test was very successful, but left questions such as: ?Where does creativity come from? Are we born with it or is it learned??
They then tested 1,600 children aged between 4-5 years and discovered that 98% of those kids fell into the genius category of imagination. By age 15, however, the genius percentage had dropped to only 12%. For adults, it had declined to about 2%. It seems the school system and our education may be the most likely culprit. https://ideapod.com/born-creative-geniuses-education-system-dumbs-us-according-nasa-scientists
