Johah Lehrer reports research showing that while teachers like creative pupils in theory they don’t in practice.

In fact, when they were asked to rate their students on a variety of personality measures – the list included everything from “individualistic” to “risk-seeking” to “accepting of authority” – the traits mostly closely aligned with creative thinking were also closely associated with their “least favorite” students.

I think this is repeated in adult organisations.
