  4. Adam Grant: The surprising habits of original thinkers | TED Talk | TED.com

    How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure. "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they’re the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."

  5. SmashingConf Barcelona 2015: Graphic Design in the 21st Century: Is the Internet Killing Creativity?

    Is the internet, for all its technology, best-practice guides, metrics and measurements making us better designers? Or is it killing creativity, homogenising ideas and undermining the notion of original thought? Join me as I explore how the practice of graphic design has changed since the information revolution.

  7. SmashingConf LA 2015: Andrew Clarke on Creativity over Predictability

    “Our industry has matured into something that’s very different from the almost joyfully naive, creative designer’s playground that it was when I started. While we focus our thoughts onto processes, methods and mechanics, instead of ideas, we’re losing the creative ‘soul’ of our work. I’m hopeful that all’s not lost and that we can make work that’s memorable if we focus as much on creativity as we do on implementation.”

  10. Dan Ariely Talks Creativity and Dishonesty: Scientific American Podcast

    Dan Ariely is a professor of behavior economics at Duke University. His latest book, The (Honest) Truth about Dishonesty, explains how creativity makes us better liars—even to ourselves

    “Lots of us are able to cheat a little bit and still think of ourselves as honest people.” Dan Ariely is a professor of behavior economics at Duke University. His latest book, The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty, explains how creativity makes us better liars—even to ourselves.

    “Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, no, this not real cheating. So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that’s what we find, is that we’re basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves. On the one hand we get some satisfaction, some utility from thinking of ourselves as honest, moral, wonderful people. On the other hand we try to benefit from cheating.

    “So rationalization is what we allows you to live with some cheating and not pay a cost in terms of your own view of yourself.

    “What kind of people would be able to rationalize better than other people? Better storytellers, right? Creative people, right? Because if you’re creative, you find more ways to cheat and still yourself a story about why this is okay.”
