  1. I read your innovation quiz on http://www.artsofinnovation.com. I think this quiz may lead people to reach incorrect conclusions about themselves.

    You ask a set of questions about how people work. However, we could imagine two people who work in much the same way, one who is experimental and the other who is conceptual. For example, two artists paint the same subject for forty years. One is an old master perfecting his style; the other is a conceptual innovator who got stuck.

    The relevant question is not “How do you work?” but “How do you work when you’re successful?”

    Unfortunately, asking someone that question directly won’t identify whether he is conceptual or experimental. The question makes sense only to someone who is at least slightly experimental, because only experiment people evaluate their past work to learn from and improve on it.

    In fact, when you ask someone to evaluate his past work, you are teaching him to be more experimental, not identifying where he was on the spectrum before he took the quiz.

    I suggest showing people a series of pairs of paintings and asking them to choose the painting they prefer from each pair. My guess is that people who consistently choose paintings by experimental artists over paintings by conceptual artists are more likely to have aesthetic goals.
    Thank you for creating a very interesting website.
