Suggestiveness and creativity

Things like the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scale and later research have shown that the correlation between intelligence and suggestibility are by no means clear-cut. I think the same is probably true of eclectic creativity, but that people who are eclectically creative expose themselves to a variety of ideas and those that are suggestive may take on those ideas, albeit temporarily, until they absorb something else into their crucible. I suspect that many of our most hallowed cultural icons are more suggestive by nature than the general population. So I think it is wrong to associate such phenomena with a specific political movement or era because it could be that it is human behaviour rather than arising out of a particular period.
