Creative Power of Unique Fashion: Identifiable By Others Or Exclusive For Yourself

We find that extraversion moderates the behavioral priming effect of unique fashion on wearers’ creativity. “Self-awareness of being in the social spotlight” mediated the relationship for extraverts wearing bluntly unique clothing and “self-awareness of own distinctiveness that others don’t notice” explained the effect for introverts wearing clothe with hidden uniqueness.
