Creativity needs both an open mind and a closed mind

An open mind allows the permeation of many ideas. But an open mind is good for achieving the quantity, not the quality of ideas.

An open mind is easy-going, which sees the beauty in everything. But it is bad at critical reasoning. It fails to question the conventional wisdom.

A closed mind is often an opinionated mind, which has a strong for and against. That belief fixation provides an anchor to develop and challenge ideas. It provides an in-depth exploration of the issue.

Whereas an open mind brings a wider angle to look at things, a closed mind provides a deeper observation of the object.
