Psychology

This work is aimed at studying the nature of the interrelation between emotional states and creativity. It continues my research carried out within two years as a part of the course work. Based on previous results, which were received on theoretical literature analysis and empirical study, we can conclude that some emotional states have a positive impact on the parameters of creativity, and that suggests there is a connection between them. There is a problem of identifying the qualitative parameter of creativity and the lack of research aimed at studying such indicators as flexibility and originality. The lack of research data and the contradiction between the available results of various experiments leave the question of the relationship of emotions and creativity open and relevant to this day.

The aim of the research is to reveal the connection between negative or positive emotional state and the parameter of creativity. The sample survey included 125 respondents who were asked to pass a questionnaire recording the presence or absence of a tendency to reduced mood (dysthymia), and then provided several tasks for verbal creativity. The hypothesis of the connection between emotional states and self-assessment of creativity was also tested in the research.

Studying of the nature of the relationship of emotions and creativity can contribute to the development of creative processes in the areas related to the production of various ideas, such as working out business plans, competent using of brainstorming techniques and so on.
