Book description

As individual subjects, creativity and personality have been the focus of much research and many publications. This Cambridge Handbook is the first to bring together these two topics and explores how personality and behavior affects creativity. Contributors from around the globe present cutting-edge research about how personality traits and motives make creative behavior more likely. Many aspects of personality and behavior are examined in the chapters, including genius, emotions, psychopathology, entrepreneurship, and multiculturalism, to analyse the impact of these on creativity. The Cambridge Handbook of Creativity and Personality Research will be the definitive resource for researchers, students and academics who study psychology, personality, and creativity.


'The Cambridge Handbook of Creativity and Personality Research deserves to be on the bookshelves of all who 'dream by day' - not only those who dream of the things that are yet to be created by the human mind, but also those who dream of the ways that we can further understand and nurture the creative personality.'

Shelley H. Carson Source: PsycCRITIQUES

'… the individual chapters … are clearly written, with thorough scholarship and well-defined points of contact with the content of other chapters. All told, the book’s scope is pretty impressive, covering the main lines of scholarship and justifying the editors’ assessment of this research nexus as vibrant and healthy.'
