Componential model

Componential model (Amabile, 1983, 1996; Lubart, 1999) is an attempt to specify the set of abilities, skills, traits, dispositions, and/or processes that are involved in creative behaviour. This model suggests that creativity will be highest in that area where the three components (domain-relevant skills, creativity-related processes, and intrinsic task motivation) share their greatest overlap. In other words, people are most likely to be creative within their 'creativity intersection.' Identifying this intersection can be an important step towards creativity.
