Transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) has been used for cognitive enhancement in healthy people. However, its effect on creativity has not been investigated. The default mode network (DMN) is associated with divergent thinking (DT; but not convergent thinking, CT), and also with anxiety, which in turn has been negatively related to creativity. We…

Lena Wimmer; Gregory Currie; Stacie Friend; Heather J Ferguson – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Although philosophers have long claimed that reading fiction has the potential to improve imaginative capacities, empirical evidence on this topic is limited. We report an experiment that aims to conceptually replicate and extend previous work by Djikic and colleagues by testing whether reading literary fiction reduces the need for closure, and by…

Marco Giancola; Massimiliano Palmiero; Simonetta D'Amico – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
The current research looks at creativity as a construct resulting from a blend of interacting individual resources and investigates, in a sample of 63 young adults, the extent to which real-world creative production is supported by trait emotional intelligence (EI), through creative thinking, including both divergent thinking (DT) and convergent…

Tin L. Nguyen; Kayla N. Walters; Alexis L. d'Amato; Scarlett R. Miller; Samuel T. Hunter – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Research on malevolent creativity has rarely linked the generation of harmful ideas with their implementation (i.e., malevolent innovation). To explain why people might act upon their malevolently creative ideas, we drew on affective events theory. Specifically, given evidence that aggressive and creative thought events can elicit positive…

Ahsan Ali; Naseer Abbas Khan; Hongwei Wang; Nan Wang – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Despite the growing body of research on social media and its effects on employees, few studies have sought to explain the aims of social media users in firms and the mechanisms that link these to employee creativity. From the perspective of social networks, this study argues that using social media for work and social purposes in an enterprise…

Ariel Klein; Toni Badia – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Divergent thinking (DT) is a fundamental part of creative ideation. Understanding its role in cognition and its attainment through language technology can provide the scaffolding to enhance creative endeavors. This study is a proof of concept on the automatic generation of keyword responses as found on the AUT (Alternative Uses Task), a test…

Nicolas Michinov; Estelle Michinov – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Embodied creativity research has begun to demonstrate that postures may boost creative performance depending on whether the creativity task requires either divergent or convergent thinking processes. Although a few studies have demonstrated that being in an expansive posture can benefit creative performance in a divergent-exploratory thinking…

Anthony K. Brandt – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
Works of art have value not only as entertainment and aesthetic expression -- they also externalize features of human cognition that would often otherwise remain hidden. A musical example from the 19th century is a striking case in point. In 1819, Austrian music publisher, editor, and composer Anton Diabelli invited fifty-one of Austria's most…

Robert J. Sternberg; Vlad Glaveanu; James C. Kaufman – Creativity Research Journal, 2024
In this exchange, the authors each address five questions about creativity, and then provide a final synthesizing response. The five questions they address are: (1) What is creativity? Are there different processes, types, or kinds of creativity, and if so, what are they? (2) What are the major obstacles to people thinking and acting creatively?…

Kim, Hyunjee Hannah; Choi, Jin Nam – Creativity Research Journal, 2023
A core challenge for team innovation is the successful translation of creative ideas into innovation through implementation. This study examines the tension between internal and external team resourcing behaviors that account for how teams translate their creative ideas into implemented innovation. Drawing on conservation of resource theory, we…

Mendoza, Isabella; Will-Cole, Alexandria; Lamberson, Leslie – Creativity Research Journal, 2023
Lissajous figures are parametric equations that deconstruct into equations of simple harmonic motion. They were a source of inspiration by artists and mathematicians alike, well before the digital age, due to their esthetic forms and simple equations that could be easily deconstructed. Here for the first time in literature, we present Lissajous…

Given the influential role of organizational context for creativity, this study examines the cross-level effects of 2 prevalent contextual elements -- HR systems and relational climates -- on individual and team creativity. We have conducted a multilevel multi-source study through hierarchical linear modeling on a sample of 282 employees nested in…

Todd, E. Michelle; Higgs, Cory A.; Mumford, Michael D. – Creativity Research Journal, 2023
Idea evaluation has been identified as a critical step in the creative problem-solving process. Yet, it is unclear how exactly individuals evaluate and compensate for weaknesses in their creative ideas. In the present study, both qualitative and quantitative methods were used to identify the compensatory strategies that undergraduate participants…
