    Default Are Extroverts more Creative than Introvert?

    According to this study, they are.
    Happy extraverts are more creative: study


    I find the study questionable since they use word association as the sole measure of creativity.

    I'm not disappointed at their results. I'm just annoyed by what appears to be sloppy science and the lack of creativity in devising the test.

    I find it questionable too. There are plenty of creative introverts out there.

    You can find a study for everything these days. Wanna prove introverts eat more toast than extroverts? There is probably a study. Lotsa sloppy science on the interwebs.

    I haven't done any studies but I would think both types are equal, just different strengths.

    I can! . There is nothing that I can think of that can concretely support this. Extroverts will just talk about their creative-ness more.

    Introverts can be just as creative as extraverts. They're just not as likely to express it.

    Aside from that, I fail to see the connection between dopamine and creativity. The methods used to put the subjects in different moods are extremely suspect. These results are probably just what they hypothesized---I wouldn't be surprised if confirmation bias ran rampant. Word association? Really? How does that assess creativity at all?

    If this were submitted to an actual academic journal it would get torn apart.
