Project Mind Survey of Israeli Ph.D. Scientists Favors a New Standard of Creativity in Science
Date:4/3/2008

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"

(inspiration/perspiration ratio)

and

"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."
