Effects of Task Routinization on Consumer Creativity

Our research posits that routine tasks lead to mental rigidity. It is demonstrated that after typing a string of letters repetitively, participants were more likely to employ a local processing style, and performed worse in a remote association task assessing creativity. Furthermore, participants’ psychological reactance moderates the effect of routinization.
