The science behind

Creativity

We have partnered with UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center to provide you with these scientific facts. Click on an item below to expand and reveal more.

People who have more creative personalities tend to be more independent, unconventional, open-minded, flexible, and spontaneous, as well as more self-confident and self-accepting.
For example, in one study, at-risk youth who participated in arts programs ended up with better work habits, attitudes, and behavior.
Studies suggest that participating in creative activities improves physical and psychological health, including for children and seniors, and is even associated with stronger immune systems in HIV patients.
Creativity is associated with greater well-being and life satisfaction and can help maintain healthy relationships.
What researchers refer to as “everyday creativity”—coming up with unique ideas that are useful or meaningful—is something that everyone is capable of and can improve at.
