Summary/Abstract: The article deals with various concepts of creativity levels (poles), and attempts at illustrating different quality of expressions of human creativity in order to prevent dichotomous and simplified perception of this phenomenon (everyday creativity – eminent creativity By the way of synthesis, the author presents the reader with several less known concepts of creativity levels by I. Taylor, A. Cropley, J. Kaufman, R. Beghetto, and M. Karwowski. Afterwards the author proceeds to present his own theoretical model of the Five Stages of Creativity. Aside form that, Szmidt points to the role of a pedagogue who assists students in various stages of creative processes. Finally, the author puts strong emphasis on the potential expressions of children and teenagers creativity in terms of diagnosis and support, rather than only on the easily seen marks of their creativity (process-oriented rather than product-oriented).
