Abstract

Extract: Creativity is a multi-faceted construct that encompasses research, theory, and applications in psychology and related fields. It is typically defined as the production of something that is useful and novel (Amabile, 1986). Creative productions involve qualitatively different stages—idea generation, idea selection, idea editing, and idea acceptance (Chiu & Kwan, 2010). A creative agent could be an individual or a team that may consist of culturally diverse members. Creativity has been studied largely as an intrapersonal cognitive process (e.g., affective state and motivational state) that takes place within a social and cultural context (Li, Kwan, Liou, &Chiu, 2013). Nonetheless, an increasing amount of attention has been given to the issue of how cultural values and processes can facilitate or hinder creative performance (Leung, Maddux,Galinsky, & Chiu, 2008; Mahbubani, 2002; Ng, 2001). Recent cross-cultural research has also shown that different normative beliefs about creativity in Eastern and Western cultures can produce pronounced East–West differences in creative performance (Chiu & Kwan, 2010; Erez &Nouri, 2010; Liou & Nisbett, 2011; Morris & Leung, 2010). These recent theoretical and empirical advances in culture and creativity research provide the context for the proposed special issue.
