A study in the US, originally developed by Dr George Land and Beth Jarman for NASA to effectively measure the creative potential of their rocket scientists and engineers, has discovered some very surprising statistics related to creativity and genius in young children.

The test was based on the process of ‘divergent thinking’ – the ability to look at a particular problem and propose multiple solutions – and was actually very simple so Land and Jarman decided to explore and understand the matter further, but this time in youngsters.

They found 1,600 children aged between 4 and 5 to take the test and were shocked at what they discovered.
