Multicultural Learning Provides Inspiration

TravelingStudents that have lived abroad appear to be more creative than peers that haven’t had such an experience, according to a study in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Enhanced creativity was linked directly to the students’ open-minded approach in adapting to a new culture in another country. Results indicated that multicultural learning is a critical component of the adaptation process, which acts as a catalyst for creativity.
