Myths and Misconceptions
Discussion: Shared Practice: Creativity: Myths and Misconceptions
In Ancient Greece and Rome, many people believed that all creative ideas originated from the nine muses, deities who delivered inspiration to artists and were the source of all human creativity. While few people believe in these goddesses of creativity anymore, many still believe that creativity is an intangible force, possessed by only a select few people who choose to be artists, writers, or musicians.
This week’s media presentation shows that the opposite is true; there are many different ways to be creative, and all people can generate creative ideas, whether they are laborers, artists, or businesspeople.
For this week’s Shared Practice, consider the myths and popular misconceptions about creativity shown in this week’s media presentation. In your past, have you believed in these myths or perhaps applied them to yourself?
With these thoughts in mind:
By Day 3
Post your analysis of how these myths and misconceptions regarding creativity relate to your own past understandings of creativity or those you have encountered in others. Then, share how these myths and misconceptions have been present in current or past practices where you have worked or at a company with which you are familiar. How has this impacted your creativity? Provide examples.
General Guidance: Your initial Shared Practice Discussion post will typically be 2–3 paragraphs in length as a general expectation/estimate. Refer to the rubric for the Week 1 Shared Practice Discussion for grading elements and criteria. Your instructor will use the rubric to assess your work.
By Day 5

Respond to two of your colleagues in one or more of the following ways:
· Share ways you or your organization has worked to challenge myths of creativity.
· Share an insight you gained from reading your colleagues’ postings regarding how you might challenge the myths regarding creativity at your workplace.
· Offer an alternative perspective on your colleague’s analysis by using a specific example from your own experience.
General Guidance: Your Shared Practice Discussion responses will each typically be 1–2 paragraphs in length as a general expectation/estimate. Refer to the rubric for the Week 1 Shared Practice Discussion 1 for grading elements and criteria. Your instructor will use the rubric to assess your work.
