Can Travel Make You More Creative?

· Creativity Tools

Having just come back from a month away in the sun, walking, sketching, engaging in lively conversation ... I'm interested in the evidence behind the idea that travel opens you up to be more creative.

This article suggests highly creative, well-traveled people have more open and accepting personalities. Travel itself can make a person more open, so there is a three-way interaction. Travel can make a person more open and creative, whereas an open person may be more motivated to travel and do creative work.
