Per ser creatiu, enfadat però no gaire

(Via Freakonomics)

Un estudi explica com enfadar-se dóna energia, fa pensar de forma poc estructurada... i permet a la gent ser molt creativa.  I també que si l'enfado dura es perd energia... i creativitat.

Consclusió: per ser creatiu enfadat, però que se't passi de seguida.

Un resum de l'estudi que es publicarà al Journal of Experimental Social Psychology:
Anecdotes and introspective reports from eminent scientists and artists aside, a systematic test of the putative creativity-enhancing effect of anger is missing. This article fills this void with three experiments examining creativity as a function of anger (vs. sad or a mood-neutral control state). Combining insights from the literatures on creativity and on mood and information processing the authors predicted that anger (vs. sadness and a mood-neutral control state) triggers a less systematic and structured approach to the creativity task, and leads to initially higher levels of creativity (as manifested in original ideation and creative insights). Following work on resource depletion, the authors further predicted that anger more than sadness depletes resources and that, therefore, creative performance should decline over time more for angry than for sad people 
Jo no sóc especialment creatiu i em costa molt enfadar-me. Està relacionada una cosa amb l'altra?  M'hauria d'enfadar més sovint?  De veritat m'enfado poc sovint?
