Fascinating facts about E.Paul Torrance inventor of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking in 1966.

E. Paul Torrance
 
AT A GLANCE:
In 1966, E. Paul Torrance and his associates invented the
“Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking”. This test helped shatter the theory that IQ tests alone were sufficient to gauge real intelligence. The tests solidified what heretofore was only conceptual – namely that creative levels can be scaled and then increased through practice. In addition to developing the most widely used tests of creativity, Torrance also created the Future Problem Solving Program and developed the Incubation Model of Teaching.
