Ideation is the process of generating thoughts or suggestions. For instance, a person who has suicidal ideation is thinking (may be detailed or just fleeting) of committing suicide. This may also refer to a psychological state of fantasy in which the individual imagines in either a creative or destructive way. For example, an artist’s ideation is productive when he imagines unique concepts for his piece while it is already destructive when he often escapes reality and lives in his fantasy world.
