Group Size and Member Diversity Influence on Creative Performance.
Thornburg, Thomas H.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v25 n4 p324-33 1991
Undergraduate students (n=239) participated in group experiments measuring creative performance. Results indicated that performance was influenced by group diversity, and greatest frequency of responses occurred from individuals brainstorming independently after group brainstorming. For creativity that required responses that break away from the usual cognitive set, brainstorming in dyads was superior. (JDD)
