Dimming the Light Offers a Creative Lens: the Impact of Ambient Illuminance on Creativity Assessment

This research examines the effect of ambient illuminance on consumers’ creativity assessment. We propose that under dim (vs. bright) illuminance, consumers experience reduced inhibition, which subsequently leads to higher creativity ratings to the assessment targets. The hypotheses were tested across three studies.
