Project Mind Survey of Israeli Ph.D. Scientists Favors a New Standard of Creativity in Science
Date:7/25/2008

; he continued, “scientific advance is associated with very brief ‘Eureka sparks’ of creative intuition, while the potential for higher, more enduring states of creativity is almost universally ignored. This could be explained, at least in part, as owing to the stigma of obsession and the significant psychological and/or physiological risks associated with contemplation of unprecedented intensity. Yet risk is a common to most pioneering. It is thus most significant to the world scientific community that our survey results indicated such a high level of willingness to undertake risks for the sake of reaching enduring states of creativity,” Devor declared.

“We did find that those scientists who expressed very strong 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
