What is creativity?

Creativity is a person's ability  make up new ideas for problem solving. This is more than intelligence, which is quantifiable by the IQ test. Unlike the IQ test, creativity is more difficult to measure, as it relates to divergent thinking, while intelligence is related to convergent thinking, psychologically speaking.
