Utilizing a Creative Task to Assess Langerian Mindfulness
Bercovitz, Katherine; Pagnini, Francesco; Phillips, Deborah; Langer, Ellen
Creativity Research Journal, v29 n2 p194-199 2017
Despite the growing interest in mindfulness and its demonstrated benefits, there are concerns about the reliance on subjective assessment tools. This study focused on the measurement of Langerian mindfulness, which refers to the active process of noticing new things and flexibly responding to the current context. Some of its key features overlap with the construct of creativity, which can be used to create a direct assessment for central components of mindfulness. The aim is to start a discussion in the field about how a direct creativity-based tool to current subjective measures might best be used.
