Attribute Five: Creative

The Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers, 2nd Edition,
Johnny Saldana, Sage, 2013, page 37

Saldana's fifth personal attribute is the ability to be creative. Citing another scholar who said that the erly stages of analysis consist of "a little bit of data and a lot of right brain" (Michael H Agar), he stresses that all coding is a matter of choice; of taking choices between multiple alternatives.

Creativity means the ability to think visually, to think in metaphors amd to think of as many ways as possible to approach a problem.
