Since the 1950s creativity scholars have relied on the product criteria of novelty and usefulness (Stein, 1953) to define the construct, even though this approach uses “extrinsic outcomes at thelevel of culture as the starting point to conceptualize individual activities characterized by intrinsic motivation” (Hansen, 2013, p. 18). This study shares 150+ diverse definitions of creativity from 1950-2019 and proposes a definition of personal creativity that is dynamic, imagination-informed, and phenomenon-based. It states, “Creativity is the person-centered  process of imagining possibilities and taking embodied expressive action to make your idea(s) real.” This humanistic view avoids premature evaluation while differentiating human from machine creativity.The qualitative methodology used is heuristic self-search inquiry. The researcher asked: (a) What is my lived experience of creativity? (b) How do I define and understand creativity? (c) How can the lived experience of creativity be defined in a way that engages imagination, inspirescreative action, and increases self-identification with personal creativity? The author documented © 2019 Marta Davidovich Ockuly  her personal creative process, intuitions, inspirations, and reflections from 2013-2019, producing4,800 pages of data. Themes were identified using reflectivity. Artificial intelligence machines might generate novel and useful ideas and process data faster than humans, but only human creativity is fueled by imagination, intuition, curiosity, empathy, and intrinsic motivation. Findings include a humanistic definition and theory of creativity, a non-linear creative process model, a lexicon of lived experience of creativity terms, and the concept of creativity influencers. Future research is also addressed.  Keywords: definition of creativity, person-centered, personal creativity, imagination, awakening creative potential, building creative confidence, developing creativity, creativity influencers, lived experience of creativity lexicon, non-linear creative process model, embodied expressive action, humanistic theory of creativity © 2019 Marta Davidovich Ockuly  © 2019 Marta Davidovich Ockuly
