This paper discusses divergent thinking as a fundamental characteristic of creativity. Unlike convergent thinking where everything is focused on one solution, divergent thinking seeks the most varied solutions to the considered problem situation (problem) while thoughts are scattered on a variety of possible solutions. By its nature, divergent thinking is subversive and destructive and, as such, it deviates from the existing thinking rules and patterns, while bringing disorder into the existing harmony and order of thoughts.
In the process of modern education, special attention must be dedicated to all students, but especially to those who can and want more, to those who, in relation to their peers, do a lot of things earlier, to a greater extent, faster, more successfully, better and differently and who consistently have better and higher achievements, which is possible to achieve by encouraging divergent thinking. Therefore, in the modern education, apart from the scientific-convergent shaping of thoughts, space for divergent thinking must also be enabled.
