Warmer Or Cooler: Exploring the Influence of Ambient Temperature on Cognitive Task Performance
We hypothesize that temperature interacts with task complexity to jointly affect task performance. While cool temperatures encourage systematic processing and thus enhance performance on simple tasks, warm temperatures prompt heuristic processing, thus enhancing performance on complex tasks. Further, warm temperatures, due to its activation of heuristic processing, enhance creativity.
