A new study by NASA shows that as we get older, our creativity fades slowly. The study by NASA states that we are born practically creative geniuses. However, going to school diminishes our natural creativity. NASA had developed a test to give to adults to measure their ability for innovation and creativity. One day, they decided to give the test to children of different ages. The results were shocking: a full 98 percent of kids did well. However, when older age groups were tested, the grades dropped up to a point where only two percent of adults faired well.
