Earlier, creative imagination was thought of as an active imagination. But it is not limited to just that. Often creative imagination steps beyond one’s active imagination. Active imagination involves your senses. But just involving your sense does not stimulate much creativity.

People daydream all the time, but it is not considered a form of creativity according to the experts. Daydreaming creates an elaborate fantasy but it involves things that are usually always present in the real world.

Although, creativity requires you to think about more than just what already exists. This separates an active imagination from a creative imagination. Individuals who have a creative imagination are more likely to create something than ones with just an active imagination.
