Which of the following terms is most closely associated with creativity?

(A) hypothesis testing
(B) contextual intelligence
(C) divergent thinking
(D) habituation
(E) echoic memory

(C) divergent thinking

Divergent thinking is a term closely associated with creativity. Convergent thinking involves looking for a single correct answer or using one prescribed method of problem solving; divergent thinking typically involves more open-ended problems. Hypothesis testing can absolutely have creative elements but is not synonymous with creativity as is divergent thinking. Contextual intelligence is a kind of practical intelligence described by Robert Sternberg. Habituation is a decrease in response to a repeated stimulus. Echoic memory is the auditory portion of sensory memory that lasts a few seconds.
