I definately relate to using creative ways of engaging people in conversation.
For example, the adolescents may be given a scenario in which they are trying to get another child to play with them.
A response such as, “I would ask them to please play with me,” would score very high in social knowledge but low in social creativity.
In contrast, a response such as, “I would pretend to call forth aliens to mind control the kids to play with me,” would score very high in social creativity but low in social knowledge.
