‘‘Creativity is the interaction among aptitude, process and environment by which an individual or group produces aperceptible product that is both novel and useful as defined within a social context.’’ (Plucker, Beghetto, and Dow 2004, S. 90)
‘‘Over the course of the last decade, however, we seem to have reached a general agreement that creativity involves the production of novel, useful products’’ (Mumford 2003, S. 110)
‘‘Creativity is the ability to produce work that is both novel (i.e., original, unexpected) and appropriate (i.e., useful, adaptive concerning task constraints)’’ (Sternberg and Lubart 1999, S. 3)
‘‘. . . creativity must entail the following two separate components. First a creative idea or product must be original . . . However, to provide a meaningful criterion, originality must be defined with respect to a particular sociocultural group. What may be original with respect to one culture may be old news to the members of some other culture . . . Second, the original idea or product must prove adaptive in some sense. The exact nature of this criterion depends on the type of creativity being displayed’’ (Simonton 1999, S. 5f.)
‘‘Creative thought or behaviour must be both novel-original and useful-adaptive’’ (Feist 1998, S. 290)
“Bringing something into being that is Original (new, unusual, novel, unexpected) and also Valuable (useful, good,
adaptive, appropriate).” (Ochse 1990, S. 2)
‘‘ . . .if a response is to be called original . . . it must be to some extent adaptive to reality’’ (Barron 1955, S. 553)
