Creative thinking is the brain ability to discover, to invent or develop, and to create new concepts. Discovering that earth is sphere, inventing a phone or creating new concepts such as artificial satellite or relativity theory are results of creative thinking. The ability to think creatively has not been learnable or teachable. If it was teachable or learnable, there should have been many geniuses in human history.
