Creativity Definition:

Creativity is the development of ideas and products that
are both original and valuable.

  
It is essential for something to be both original and
valuable to be creative.  It is possible that something could
be very original but not valuable.  We probably would not
view something as creative if it is not valuable.  For
example, a person could write a book that was just random
sentences.  This may be highly original, but it would not be
of value to anyone.

Examples of creativity include a scientist who develops
a theory to explain human behavior, a musician who writes
original songs that are enjoyed by many people, and a
writer who writes a book that provide new ideas for
fundraising.
