It is common sense that people are likely to be more creative when they are not under pressure.

First, when you say 'common sense' you mean 'absolute truth' yes? Not 'popular opinion that may be untrue'?

Many great, famous pieces of art have been the product of art competitions throughout history. Thoughts?

Thoughts?

My thoughts are that you are an intellectually redundant imbecile who is trying to sell a false premise through the use of a laughably weak example.

Perhaps you would care to explain how sending completed artwork off to be judged puts the creative process under pressure.

Competition never kills creativity, but ‘Comparisions’ do…

Creativity allows you to make mistakes.

And trust me, mistakes leads to perfection.

Comparing yourselves with others is just not done to get the best out of you.

If we go through a person’s success story, doesn’t mean that the path which he has traced is the only certain path to get success !!

A famous saying goes like,

“Creativity requires the courage to let go off certainties”

-by Erich fromm

Dare to choose your own path to success; and shine as an example to this world.

That’s creatively competitive !!!

BeYou !!

Bullshit it doesn't. Look at what has happened to the media industry. Investigative journalism is dead because of the 24 hour rolling news cycle. There simply isn't enough time to properly investigate the angles before putting a story to print, and that is a direct result of competition.

You're wrong - statistics show that.

Yes there is an incentive to be first, but being first doesn't substitute for factual reporting.

This is exactly the reason CNN etc. is doing so badly.

'fake news at 5' always loses to 'fact news at 6'.

Investigative journalism isn’t supposed to be creative, it’s supposed to be informative.

As for the effects of competition, I don’t think the news has ever before been more creative.

It channels creativity and limits how creative one can be at the sake of efficiency.

It doesn't kill it, it incentivises it.

Only communists say it kills it.

It incentivises it by limiting it and if you disagree you're a commie. Nice.

I believe it encourages it in many ways. When one has the motivation to think creatively they can really be inspired to think outside of the box, and often that motivation is competitiveness.
