Imagination

Postby Spark17 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:53 pm

Hey there!

I was reading a psychology book and there is a chapter about imagination.
There it says: "Some people are born with richer imagination than others".
Well, if we focus on this word "imagination", we find it: the ability of creating; or more developed, it is, according wikipedia: "an intelectual cognitive process of combining and selecting in new images, elements from previous experience".

Here is the question, how could a child have a richer imagination than other child since they both have no previous experience. I disagree imagination is a cognitive process, in my opinion is rather an inventive spirit, like a talent. I see these things pretty difficult to be approached, that's why I came to such a forum haha. I really want to hear others' opinions.

Thanks,
Theodor

how can you check the child imagination if they have no previous experience? Those childs to not know how to talk yet.

Thanks for your reply.
Good point, but again, imagination is all about knowledge and knowledge is gaining with previous experiences.
Since they have no experience, their tiny brains are not developed enough having a rich imagination.

That's why I think imagination is not about experience.
All answers are appreciated, I would really enjoy discussing this with someone :D
