The criterion problem was one of the focal points of early studies of creativity, but several useful criteria have been developed in the last few decades. However, this influence of data is going unnoticed in design development. And now we have a good computerized scoring system for flexibility, which is highly reliable and fast. The distinction among press and place influences exemplifies this. His textbook, Creativity: Theories, themes, and issues Academic Press has been translated into six languages.
