Creativity in the Later Life: Factors Associated with the Creativity of the Chinese Elderly
Zhang, Wei; Niu, Weihua
Journal of Creative Behavior, v47 n1 p60-76 Mar 2013
This study examined a total of 140 elderly Chinese from China and the United States to investigate the relationship between attitude toward aging, daily activities, general health, education, and other demographics and rated creativity as measured by collage making and storytelling. The result of this study shows that creativity declines with age. However, education, general health status, daily activities, and the attitude toward aging are also found to be decisive factors of creativity. The implications of the findings are discussed.
