Description Creative workers have been celebrated internationally for their flexibility in new labour markets centred on culture, creativity and, most recently, innovation.
This book draws on research with novice and established workers in a range of specializations in order to explore the meanings, aspirations and practical difficulties associated with a creative identification. It investigates the difficulties and attractions of creative work as a personalized, affect-laden project of self-making, perpetually open and oriented to possibility, uncertain in its trajectory or rewards.
Employing a cross-disciplinary methodology and analytic approach, the book investigates the new cultural meanings in play around a creative career. It shows how classic ideals of design and the creative arts, re-interpreted and promoted within contemporary art schools, validate the lived experience of precarious working in the global sectors of the creative and cultural industries, yet also contribute to its conflicts.

In particular, the authors reported that emotion regulation enhances creativity but only for those who are relatively more open to new experiences. The nature of the presented creative problem, for example, whether it is well defined or ill defined, can also affect creative performance. Invariably, the cognitive processes that inhibit mental exploration are also detrimental to creativity. Analogical thinking enables consumers to borrow information from familiar, existing domains of knowledge and use it to generate new ideas in the target domain.
Borrowing information from multiple domains i.

In addition to the number of analogies, the utilization of a higher proportion of far analogies i. The use of metaphors i. Other aspects of cognition can also facilitate recognition and re combination of remote associations and thereby enhance creativity. The salience of paradoxical relationships creates a sense of conflict that then prompts individuals to integrate contradictions, thereby leading to a higher level of creativity.
A positive relationship also exists between rapid eye movement REM sleep, during which dreams occur, and creativity.go to link
Contemporary identities of creativity and creative work - Open Research Online
The last decade has also seen an upsurge in research by neuroscientists who have attempted to understand the brain regions associated with the cognitive processes that drive creativity. Herd and Mehta in press used this demonstrated positive relationship between cognitive flexibility and creativity to extend work in the domain of creativity and visual mental imagery. Herd and Mehta in press demonstrate that during visual simulation, a specific focus on end user feelings enhances cognitive flexibility, which in turn leads to higher outcome creativity, as compared to a more objective approach to end user visualization.
In one of their experiments, the researchers created a virtual reality environment and showed that actively immersing participants into complex, unusual, and unexpected events increased their cognitive flexibility.
Similarly, in another experiment, they demonstrated that experiencing minimal schema violations, which lie at the core of diversified experiences, enhances cognitive flexibility. Cognitive flexibility can also drive the effect of different mood states on creativity. Similarly, Lin, Tsai, Lin, and Chen demonstrated that higher cognitive flexibility drives the effect of positive emotions on creative performance. The preceding discussion indicates that efforts to better understand the cognitive processes that underlie creativity have been at the forefront of creativity research over the last decade.
Creativity and the Role of the Leader
We see two research opportunities arising from this recent work specific to creative cognition. One area for additional investigation pertains to the relationship between prior knowledge and creativity, a topic that has been debated by academics for quite some time Dietrich, In contrast, the other view asserts a tension between prior knowledge and creativity and argues that more prior knowledge may actually impede creativity. Thus, it would be beneficial for future research to further explore these differing viewpoints.
