Abstract: 

Creative thinking is not defined unambiguously. There are many options for its measurement. But there is one factor correlated with the creative thinking. It is called cognitive complexity. Cognitive complexity varies depending on the profession, belonging to a culture and education. Cognitive complexity also forms the subject's perception. Article is useful both for people interested in creative thinking and for people trying to understand the different factors affecting our perception.
