    If somebody is ‘inventive’, they are innovative and adept at using their imaginations to create something original, or improve something that already exists. It doesn’t necessarily require a special kind of intelligence to be inventive; children and adults can be in their own way, so long as they are displaying creativity and producing new ideas. The word is always used in a positive sense.
