Even though I find it hard to quantify this Freudian view, I still find it reasonable to argue that
creative work is a result of some unmet needs during childhood. First, looking at one of the most
impressive inventions in human history, the creation of vaccine by Edward Jenner, I believe his
discovery may have been fueled by his childhood needs, given that he lived was at risk of death
from smallpox attack. In 1957, when he was only 8 years, he was inoculated with smallpox,
among thousands of other children in England (Barquet & Domingo,1997). He developed a mild
infection of smallpox and subsequently became immune. He may have developed some needs
from this process that he sought to satisfy later in adulthood. It is still hard to conclude this is
true, since his exposure to other scientists may have otherwise created his interest in developing
a vaccine.
It can be hard to examine if all creative people have some unmet needs. Besides, it would not be
true to argue that all creative people had some unmet needs in their childhood or all people who
had some unfulfilled needs in their childhood are creative people. A statement that I find most
reasonable is that creativity arises out of necessity. Creativity is based on skills and experience; a
key technique to enhance creativity would be through training to increase skills and exposure.
For example, Toyota Company, with vast years of experience and technology can make a better
model than an automobile startup.

death. Annals of internal medicine, 127(8_Part_1), 635-642.
