You describe intelligence and creativity as opposites? What aspect of intelligence do we even mean by "intelligence" in this regard? Logic/mathematical? Linguistic? Musicality?

I'd put creativity as another intelligence, and rarely do I see any negative correlation between creativity and other types of intelligence. To me, creativity represents the ability to look at things in new ways, or to create something new from known concepts. Be it an abstract tool or a tangible one. Or in the sense of the question, the logical person would find the best way to solve a the pussle, the creative person would realise the pussle isn't square.

What do you mean by creativity?
