Original thinking is the generation of ideas that are rare or unique. It is closely tied to fluency, the ability to produce a lot of ideas. The more ideas, the greater chance of an unusual, rare, or original result. Research has shown that generating more than 10 ideas greatly increases the likelihood of an idea being considered original. Logically, people usually list the most common, un-original ideas first and only later reach ideas that haven't been tried or found successful. Of course, the same old ideas come up first. Completing this test on a regular basis will provide good practice at inventing new ideas. There are no wrong answers, and this is meant to develop one's own skill in creativity.

Each time a test is completed, a percentile rank will be displayed and the 20 most recent test scores will be saved under an email address. Percentile ranking is calculated by samples selected from an earlier version of the Originality Development Engine. This is meant for comparison purposes only. The average score is about 7.5 answers per picture, and those developing more than 13 answers are above the 90th percentile. Those generating more than 19 answers are above the 99th percentile.
