Imaginational and cognitive intensities, qualities of the kind of “teeming” brain that many high ability and creative people have, may be key elements for solving problems and doing creative thinking.

But over-active thinking and imagination can sometimes get in our way.

  1. This is a problem for a lot of adults. Getting control of your creativity and getting control of the images you make in your brain is important.

    If you worry, you are visualizing… but you are visualizing possible bad futures. Learn to control your own imagination, control your own creativity, and control the pictures you show yourself in your head! You can learn by getting my book. It’s less than $10, and you can download it to your Kindle in less than 60 seconds.

    My book Forgiveness Is Important (up on Amazon Kindle now) and Be In This World But Not Of It (coming within the week) both have chapters on developing your creativity.

    Exercises are broken out into Basic, Intermediate and Advanced for Imagination, Creativity, and Visualization.
