  99. 99. Art students were given 27 eclectic objects and were instructed to select afew and arrange a still life and draw it. Some examined relatively fewobjects, outlined their idea swiftly, and moved quickly to draw their stilllife. Others took their time: handled more objects, turned them this wayand that, rearranged them several times, and needed much longer tocomplete the drawing.It appeared as if the first group was trying to solve a problem: How can Iproduce a good drawing? Whereas the second was trying to find aproblem: What good drawing can I produce?The problem-finders’ drawings had been ranked much higher in creativitythan the problem-solvers’. Ten years later, the problem-finders had allgone on to be professional artists, while the problem-solvers had left theart world.Another decade later, the problem-finders were “significantly moresuccessful — by the standards of the artistic community — than theirpeers.”A study on problem-finding and creativity
