Creativity Exercise 2

please read carefully

This second exercise targets your brain’s combinatorial capacity. As Albert Einstein once said, “combinatory play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought”, and practising making combinations in the right way will significantly boost your creative ability.

The exercise includes seven of the grammatical principles behind creative thought. It has a slightly different structure and feel to the first exercise, so please let us know your thoughts on it afterwards!


This exercise takes seven and a half minutes. Again, we suggest you use earphones or headphones to listen to it and to be comfortably seated in a quiet place, and there is no need to take notes or draw anything.

Click on the below audio file to play the exercise, and close your eyes throughout.
