7 ways to vaccinate yourself against boring thinking

As part of our internal UX series, Dr Amather Imber gave a hugely entertaining hour on 7 science-based ways to boost your own individual creativity.

The seven rules are:

#1 Warm up your brain beforehand

#2 Warm-coloured environments increases creativity

#3 Shifting increases the diversity and number of ideas generated

#4 Constraints increases creativity

#5 Exposure to a wide amount of information increases creativity

#6 Recognition (not reward) increases creativity

#7 Deviance boost creativity

All these points were explained and based around science and academic studies. Some of the experiments we did in the meeting really came as a surprise.

Next week Hyro are coming in to re-present their Remix presentation.

More details on Amantha and Inventium.
