After reading Chapter 8 and Chapter 9 of Understanding Creativity: The Interplay of Biological, Psychological, and Social Factors, I've come up with my personal list.
1. Creative problem solving usually resolves in something considered new or unusual as a solution
2. Critical thinking does not necessary result into a definite solution
3. Critical thinking sometimes is implemented so that multiple, many solutions are created
1. Both require elevated processes of thinking and a choice/ability to think harder or 'outside of the box'
2. Both require a base of knowledge and practice to develop
3. Both are influenced from outside sources (environment, various institutions, family, etc.)
