The Effects of Physical Constraints on Creativity

The effects of physical constraints on creativity are investigated in this paper. The results from one study show that when wearing a tight hat (vs. wearing a loose hat), males were more creative, while females were less creative. The theoretical framework will be tested in a serious of follow-up studies.
