willingness to use
'methods to put them into a creative state and keep them in this state, for
as long as they wished,' gave higher grades in most of the survey's
parameters: (i.e., they are more independent in their work, more
idealistic, and they attach more importance to creativity and spiritually
than others)," noted Devor. Worthy of note is that economic and other
incentives were not considered sufficiently significant to make scientists
accept these risks. Methods to reduce psychological and/or physiological
risks, as opposed to economic incentives, were more effective in promoting
the willingness to experiment with methods of entering a creative state
(42% gave a grade of 7- 10, indicating willingness to accept these risks).
"Quite simply," Devor concluded, "it seems that they believe that increased
creativity can improve their work."
A statistical regression was made in order to determine the parameters
that most influence the intention of using methods to induce a state of
creativity. Three parameters were found to be significantly influential.
The most influential parameter was:
To what extent did you feel that there was more to 'perceive'
had you only had the opportunity to remain longer in the creative state?"
Those who responded positively were those who expressed a greater
willingness to try methods to put them in a creative state.
The other two parameters were:
"If it were in my power, I would want to increase this ratio"
"I have a special method or technique (internal or external)
for inducing creativity in myself."
"Thanks to this survey," states Project Mind director David Devor, "it
could be said that a small step has been made towards dramatically
improving the standard of creativity in scientific research worldwide."
