creativity is a capability possessed by everyone with varying degrees so that everyone has a creative ability and believes in himself.
Bruner (Bambang Subagio: http.www.Google.Com/Creativity and Innovation) mentions creativity is something new, has never existed, has never thought of, unique, can goods, can also new ideas. (Taken on May 2, 2003).
In this case Semiawan (1984: 8) states that creativity is the ability to create new combinations, or to see new relationships between elements, data or things that have been there before. Creativity lies in the ability to see associations between previously unrelated objects or objects.
Deavdahl (Hurlock: 1993: 4) states: Creativity is the ability of a person to produce any composition, product or idea that is basically new or unknown before. It can be an imaginative activity or a synthesis of thought that results not merely summarize. It may include the formation of new patterns and a combination of information gained from previous experiences and transplanting old relationships to new situations and may include the formation of new correlations. The formation of a new pattern can be about a new methodology or structure.
Understanding the above emphasizes the concept of creativity that refers to a process. This process is an interactive process between individuals and their environment. Gollan’s opinion in Bloomberg’s book (1973: 27) states:
Creativity has been viewed as a common distributed trait, an aptitude trait, an intrapsychic process, and as a style of life. It has been described as that which is seen in all children, but few adults. It has been described as that which leads to innovation in science, performance in fine arts, or new thougts. Creativity has been described as related to, or equatable with, intelligence, productivity, positive mental health, and originality.
Another opinion about creativity is delivered by Candra (1994: 17), which states that creativity is a mental and various abilities.
Jordan (1999), in: http // www. 10 ways to free your creative spirit.htm mentions seven potential creativity that we have: (1) linguistic / verbal: the ability to process words in the form of writing or even ajara. (2) Logic / math: the ability to process numerical systems and logical concepts. (3) Space: the ability to observe and process patterns and designs. (4) Music: the ability to understand and cultivate musical concepts such as tone, rhythm and harmony. (5) Body movement: the ability to use body and movement, as in sports and dance. (6) Intrapersonal: the ability to understand his own feelings and become a reflective and philosophical person. (7) Interpersonal: the ability to understand the feelings of others, their thoughts and feelings.
The quality of the process of creativity depends on persistence, tenacity, hard work, independence and time, reflected in the smoothness of thinking, flexibility of thought, and details of time is something that is very meaningful, then the time available will be used to produce something that does quality.
So it can be said that creativity is a mental process that can be realized in a person’s thinking ability, among which he is able to create new works even though the work is not entirely new, but can be a combination or combination of elements that already exist. One’s creativity can be seen from their way of thinking, which includes current, flexible, original thinking skills of existing elements. One’s creativity can be seen from their way of thinking, which includes fluent, flexible, original and detailed thinking skills. Treffinger (1980: 15), says that no one has no creativity.
Utami Munandar (1992: 51), states the notion of creativity that is said as the conclusion of experts as follows:
1. Creativity is the ability to create new combinations, based on data, information or elements that exist.
2. Creativity (creative thinking or divergent thinking) is the ability that based on available data or information finds many possible answers to a problem, where the emphasis is on the usability, and the diversity of answers thus the more likely it can be given to a problem it can be said creative.
3. Operationally creativity can reflect, fluency, flexibility and originality in thinking as well as the ability to elaborate (develop, enrich, detail) an idea.
Torrance, E (1970: 22), says In this book, the terms “creative teaching” and “creative learning will be used to refer to what happens when the teacher
