Using just the first words that came to mind, without analyzing any of them, I got 77.15. Not particularly surprising, if asked to guess my level of creativity, I would probably have said “about average.”

Now I’m going to see what I get if I actually put some real thought into it :nerdy:

I'm a very divergent thinker, but I wouldn't equate it to creativity.

It's a form of creativity, even if there's others it's still something to be proud of.

I've always been better with deductive reasoning or thought: moving from a big picture concept and deconstructing it into smaller pieces and micro details. I can't go the other way round, putting pieces together to see a whole using inductive construction. I can't even understand the idea of a gestalt.

Creative? Not really in my case. I'd call it scattered. 8)

89.93 that time, higher than 96.29%.

Didn’t include my percentage last time, it was 44-something.

What were your other three that they didn't count?

I had "loss", "bandeau", and "trajectory".

The 'Divergent Association Task' is discussed in Quora (LINK).

Wikipedia (as of this writing) has not developed a listing 'Divergent Association Task.' I feel that negative-leaning indifference to the notions that such measures can properly assess creativity!

I’m not very creative at all. It took me forever to just figure out the directions. 8O :D

I put a bunch of nouns, and then realized that it said you have to make them as different from each other as possible. Half my answers changed. I am not that creative either. lol


I remember the directions were to put in ONLY nouns. :oops:

And now…having read the quora link…I see that the words were supposed to be each word different from all the other words on the list. I read it as each word to be different from the previous word.

No wonder I have spent most of my life confused. :|

It's hard. I tried it again a few times, very intent on choosing a variety of unrelated nouns.

The highest I was able to get was 95 point something.

It's a good activity for brain injuries or vocabulary development.
