We provide experimental evidence on whether engaging in a creative task affects the degree to which one tolerates ambiguity. We find that subjects who completed a creative task invest significantly more in a lottery with unknown odds than subjects involved in a non-creative task, suggesting that being exposed to creativity may engender higher openness to ambiguity and novelty.

Abstract

We provide experimental evidence on whether engaging in a creative task affects the degree to which one tolerates ambiguity. We find that subjects who completed a creative task invest significantly more in a lottery with unknown odds than subjects involved in a non-creative task, suggesting that being exposed to creativity may engender higher openness to ambiguity and novelty.
