Creativity: nature or nurture?

An interesting question from a Linkedin thread....While it may be something of an overstatement to say that everyone is creative, the reason that some people would not believe this of themselves is that creativity is first defined to children as artistic creativity.

If you are mocked for your inability to draw beyond stick figures, it may be years before you can look back and recognize that you have a gift for creative mathematics, managing people, or mechanical activity from fixing clocks and computers to developing complex engineering projects.

Nature or nurture? I would suggest that creativity is somewhat opportunistic. If you have the chance to try something or if you are challenged to do something and you step up, you are "creative."  Try it, you'll like it.
