Divergent thinking is not as same as Creativity!
Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have values.
Btw, divergent thinking isn’t a synonym but an essential capacity for Creativity. It is ability to see lots of possible answers to a questions/lots of ways to interpret a question.
Think laterally not linear or convergent way.
Lateral Thinking: is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. The term was coined in 1967 by Edward De Bono.
