Results of the analysis presented here indicated that there are clusters of connections which suggest a moderate to strong link between the facets of Creativity and the facets of Understanding. Examining the facets of Perspective, Synthesis, Empathy, Application, Self-Knowledge, and Connect demonstrate the relationship appears to be a mutually supportive symbiosis between the Creativity and Understanding facets.
