Computer program for complex diagnostic of  level of creative thinking and increasing  IQ  “brainbuilding”


     The present work contains the material for computer program, which is able to measure the level of creativity of the tested person and to increase his (her) IQ.

The tests are based on the ability of the tested person to see identical functions, identical disadvantages, IFR (Ideal Final Results), identical Physical Results, identical Techniques for resolving engineering contradictions, identical manifestations of one and the same trends of engineering evolution.     .


Main problem being solved– test for checking and remembering of studied material within courses of applying TRIZ for solving engineering problems relating to levels 1, 2 and 3 in the version developed by Gen3 Korea Innovation Consulting, Ltd. Thje course of our company has been harmonized with the normative requirements of МАTRIZ programs [1]  and surpasses it in the aspects relating to obligatory use of function-oriented search and the method of analogy in general.

Problems, solved in the course of performing the research work  – development of ability to draw analogies according to several mechanisms in the field of inventive problem solving. Traqnsfer of these habits to the subconscious level of the user. Compiling three installments each of them containing 100 exercises and development of the system of correct keys to these exercises.

Novelty of the work – it consists in eliminating the lack of tests for measuring the creativity level developed by Gilford-Torrance in terms of elimination of personal motivation of the tested persons in the course of testing.

Testing the ability for divergent thinking does not fundamentally imply the ability to use strong sides of the personality of the tested person. Examples are used, which cannot activate the motivation due to abstract character of proposed exercises. The same claims are given to the DCI training sessions, which were used earlier in Russian TRIZ universities.

The exercises of the type “how many variants of using a plastic bottle could you find in 30 ( 90 – 180) minutes?” – could not be an objective criterion for selecting a candidate, when hiring a person to the innovation consulting company. This is not enough.

Concentrated criticism of tests of the type, set forth by Gilford – Torrance[2,3]   is no be found in the work by Bogoyavlenskaya. [4]  The author (and this is just from the standpoint personal inventive experience of the authors) criticizes Gilford-Torrance for their wrong platform in their evaluation of creativity.

Divergent thinking (main criteria are defined as “fluency” , “flexibility”, “uniqueness”) is important for such solvers, who are trained by the software product, however, this is not the only thing, which defines their ability to propose not fantastic ideas for the project, but quite particular engineering ideas, which are appropriate for verification.  

Bogoyavlenskaya also writes that the check of creativity performed in such a way does not in any way explain, why the schoolchildren, who mostly got “threes” (mark meaning “satisfactory”)  in 20 years after graduation become successful bankers, ministers and marshals, while pupils who studied excellently became losers and office plankton.


The system of tests proposed by our company is presented like an intentionally tiresome training of a newly recruited soldier, who will have to go to the front and to survive next day.   The preparation of solvers in terms of content and meaning is equivalent to lessons at a music school, where there is no sympathy with the difficulties of the student and there cannot be such a sympathy. This is the main moral platform of the software product.  Success in music or in painting is inconceivable without overcoming difficulties. Performance of innovative projects–  TRIZ solving is a kind of arts, which use scientific knowledge as well.


Instrumentality of proposed development

The first unit consisting of 100 exercises has been created and tested. There are plans to create two units more, each of them consisting of 100 exercises and to measure the efficiency of this kind of exercises for the sake of developing both creativity and the enhancement of IQ level.

Let us analyze one example from the software project, in order to illustrate the principles of its operation in terms of testing:

What common features have the invention of a tea bag (if the prototype is a teapot, loose tea and a sieve), of a paper cigarette (if the prototypes are smoking pipe and loose tobacco, matches, accessories for cleaning the pipe)) and the invention of the cartridge (if the prototypes are muskets,  powder flask, closing mug, wiping-rod, steel and flint…).

  The control solution of this problem (let us take an intentionally “complicated” problem associated with analysis):


1.      Identical disadvantages is found with all technologies – we have to spend much time on the preparation of the main process;

2.      Spend much energy (movements and manual manipulations), while “time” and “energy” are two different categories of resources;

3.      Identical scenario of development – application of Example number 1 (“splitting into parts”);

4.      Identical scenario of development – application of Example number 10 – “preliminary action”;

5.      Identical scenario in the language of TESE, increase of ideality according to the mechanism of reducing energy and time, required for starting the process

6.      Identical IFR (Ideal final Result). In all examples we could use the formula “a certain element X appeared in my system, as a result of using which my system solves the problem for reducing time and energy consumption ITSELF; this is the idea of “briquetting substance PRIOR to starting of the main consumption process”;

7.      Identical generalized function in case of drinking tea, smoking and shooting – we “deliver certain substance from object A to object B”, these substances being respectively nicotine, tannin and a piece of lead.

 It is easy to calculate the parameter of thinking quality:

  The tested person gave only one answer out of 7 possible answers, this means 14% or 14 points out of 100, 2 -24%,  3- 42 – 60% , 4- 56%, 5 – 70%, 6  answers mean 84%, 7 answers mean 100% or 100 points.  

Thetestedperson: whatnumberofanswersdoeshehavetogive? At the same time he (she) is warned that such a number of answers is expected from him, which he (she) can give. The computer facilities easily calculate the time for entering the answers into the answer windows of this software program.


Key words: “function of engineering system”, DCI (Development of Creative Imagination), “Function Oriented Search”, “creativity development”, “Tests on creativity measurement”


The Sumit material will contain several testing examples

of the company GEN 3Korea Innovation Consulting Ltd,

or your common sense

The present software product includes 100 exercises on defining (based on three examples) identical functions[5-9]  , identical disadvantages[2,3]  , identical physical contradictions[10]  , manifestation of the same regularities of engineering evolution in different fields, manifestation of the same techniques for resolving Engineering contradictions[10-15]  .

Software product is published in an abridged form.
