Or if you could not complete it, here are interesting facts of a research on attitudes and beliefs about creativity.

This research is published in April, 2012 and includes 5000 respondents in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan.

The facts:

  • Globally, Japan is regarded the most creative country, except by the Japanese
  • Americans believe the US is the most creative
  • Only 1 in 4 people feel that they are living up to their creative potential
  • 75% said they are under growing pressure to be productive rather than creative at work
  • Only about half of Americans would describe themselves as creative (global average is even lower at 39%)
  • Time and money are seen as the biggest challenges to being able to create

And here is the full report online.

Have a peaceful evening.
