Abstract Share this page

A meta-analysis of 62 experimental and 10 non-experimental studies was conducted to evaluate the positive-mood-enhances-creativity generalization. While the results demonstrate that positive mood enhances creativity, the strength of that effect is contingent upon the comparative or referent mood state (i.e., neutral or negative mood) as well as the type of creative task. Further, the pattern of effect sizes sup- ports a curvilinear relationship between affective intensity and creative performance. In general, a con- textual perspective of mood–creativity relations is supported.
