Divergent Association Task
The Divergent Association Task is a quick measure of verbal creativity and divergent thinking, the ability to generate diverse solutions to open-ended problems. The task involves thinking of 10 words that are as different from each other as possible. For example, the words cat and dog are similar, but the words cat and book are not. People who are more creative tend to generate words that have greater distances between them. It is done online and free to use. It was designed by researchers from Harvard, McGill, and University of Melbourne, and has been validated on around 9,000 participants from 98 countries across the world.
