Creativity Is Not Synonymous to Illogicallity

    Do creativity personalities always manifest some degree of illogicality?
Oh, you are still thinking about the left/right brain dichotomy which is somewhat too simplistic to ration the thinking behavior of the cerebral hemisphere to psychological manifestations just as short, strict, rigid and absolute.

  The absolute dichotomy. What a heck!
Creative personalities are not people of illogical mechanism of thinking but rather, they are individuals who came out of the realm of stereotypical thinking

 so that innovation/inventions might surface.

    They might appear unreasonably unique, or does things that make no sense to others, might not even care or bother about the role society foist on them. They simply imagine, challenge the status quo, and ready to face, tackle and/resolve whatever social demands might create at any given time.

   Creative personalities are not individuals whose either part, say left brain is damages or malfunctioning or functioning at low frequency. They are individuals who woke up one day and say " this has to change, imagine something wonderfully novel, it has to be put to practice fro inside my thoughts tho the external world". They invent, challenge, change, change the change itself, turn around, stir up, and De-mystify.    Creative individuals believe knowledge is not absolute and as such, insufficient and in fact, can even mislead so there is a gross personal and societal demand to create and recreate.
    An example of such figure is Albert Einstein who once said 'imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world' yes imagination encompass the world', it's not limited by the senses neither is it limited by the objects of experiences.
What is the neuropsychological science literature saying about the creative brain? It is still very popular to hear things like 'the right hemisphere does creative things and here it would mean that creative people are lateralized and dominant in their right hemisphere or maybe slightly dominant in this area but slightly lateralizes towards the right. Cliche! Cliche!! Cliche!!!

    To me, I would suppose creative individuals are individuals who reasoned out their way and at the very process got their brains re-wired, what theory of neuroplasticity would better explain that the changes that affect brain grossly attributes to the changes that goes on in the environment to such an extent as to affect behavior. Well this is correct but I would rather admit that it my not always be rigidly true. Why? This is because creative personalities are insightful, intuitive, and imaginative. They are from the inside, they first invent with idea that passes the stages of creativity.

1. Preparation
This is the first stage when an idea sets in the mind of its supposed creator.

2. Incubation
To ruminate about an idea even in the face of its unawareness. The brain just keep processing.

3. Illumination
The idea pops back into the head, anew discovery. The haha period where, 

4. Creativity
itself is a dependent on the products, process, person and the press (environmental factor) are the true 4 Ps of creativity.

    Evidence from fact and sciences suggests that creative figures although being creative, are logical-mathematical in fact, that no evidence support from the various brain imaging techniques such as the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) , Computerized Axial Tomography Scan (CAT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) e.t.c that the creative people do not use the other part of their brain as efficient and effective as the supposed dominant hemisphere.
