How do naturally creative people think? Naturally creative people can think about how a previous problem was solved and then think about that solution abstractly. Then they combine the abstract solution with resources available in the system that contains the new problem to form ideas. The ability to think about previous solutions abstractly and then port them to the current problem under study is the essence of natural creativity. The natural creator does this subconsciously but if this thought process can be brought to the conscious level, then it can be taught and broadly applied.
