There has been some recent buzz in several media outlets and in the blogosphere on some recent research focusing on creativity and living abroad. I just discovered this INSEAD Knowledge series video (10:34) interview with William Maddux, one of the co-researchers/authors, on YouTube. I won't summarize the research or the interview in this post as I just wanted to put this on your radar.
Here is the non-APA, non-Chicago Manual of Style citation should you want to track down the article:
“Cultural Borders and Mental Barriers: The Relationship Between Living Abroad and Creativity” by William W. Maddux from INSEAD and Adam D. Galinsky from Northwestern University published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Vol. 96, No. 5, 1047-1061 (2009)
