Understanding the Role of Cultural Intelligence in Individual Creativity
Yunlu, Dilek G.; Clapp-Smith, Rachel; Shaffer, Margaret
Creativity Research Journal, v29 n3 p236-243 2017
Employing creative cognition theory, this study investigates the relationship between cultural intelligence (CQ) and creativity. Using data from 394 full-time employees, metacognitive, cognitive, and motivational forms of CQ were found to have positive relationships with individual creativity. In addition, the positive effect of cognitive CQ on creativity was more pronounced when curiosity was high. However, the influence of metacognitive CQ on creativity was enhanced when curiosity was low. Several contributions to the multicultural creativity literature are offered.
