For each kind of situation there are many possible patterns of response; but we may be UNAWARE of the many possible patterns of integrative response, and be aware of only one response--- or be aware of some few nearly identical responses which we think are the only possible proper responses to a given situation. We may be victims of exclusive conceptions of what might be appropriate responses to the situation, thinking that only the patterns of response which we are familiar with are appropriate in the situation. When we see a creative person respond to a situation in a manner different from the few responses which we have come to regard as appropriate---we may regard their response as inappropriate because of the exclusive mind- set of our paradigm. We may thus be blocked from appreciating creative new ways of dealing with situations which may be newer than we have recognized, and so calling for new patterns of response. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
