Neuroscience of Creativity, Perception, and Confirmation Bias

All behavior is to reduce uncertainty - uncertainty brings stress.

Creativity is seeing things differently - and that starts with uncertainty.

We function with a long list of assumptions that we create from our experience history. To see differently, first accept that all we do is based on these assumptions.

Process of seeing differently...

  1. Identify your assumptions
  2. Question those assumptions

To question assumptions requires you to be accept uncertainty.
