comment Is there a correlation between high IQ and creativity?
I believe this question is in regards to the IQ/creativity Threshold Theory, which I'm having a heck of a time finding a good, single page description of. If anyone finds one we should probably add it to the body of the question.

comment How is it that taking a break from a problem sometimes allows you to figure out the answer?
Your mind sits on the egg passively. Incubation is (arguably) a passive process in this context. Tearing open the egg would be actively seeking it, and would yield less than ideal results.
