Before anything significant is accomplished, there is a thought. An idea, if you will. And today, more and more successful careers depend on the ability to come up with new ones at a steady pace.

According to some psychologists, creativity can be predicted using the Big Five personality traits model. Most of the time, people who are high in openness tend to be more curious and likely to come up with new and daring ideas.

At the same time, many scholars suggest that creativity can be enhanced. For instance, psychologist Dean Keith Simonton, author of Origins of Genius, argues that creativity depends heavily on nurture, not just good luck or good genes.
