Abstract

Research on cosmopolitanism and creativity has received significant attention in recent years; however, the connections between these constructs are still ill-defined. This study uses the creative cognition model to explore the relationship between cosmopolitanism and creativity using both self-report and expert ratings of a qualitative task. Quantitative data support the assertion that cosmopolitanism is significantly and positively related to self-expectations of creativity and creative work involvement. However, creative performance on a productive solutions task coded by creativity experts failed to replicate the self-reported findings. We describe the practical and theoretical implications of these results for future research into cosmopolitanism and creativity.
