Creativity researchers have long sought to understand the factors that foster or inhibit creative performance. Researchers have evaluated individual difference variables, such as personality (Feist, 1998; Furnham & Nederstrom, 2010), motivation (Amabile, 1996), and intelligence (Furnham & Nederstrom, 2010), as well as environmental factors, such as leadership (Reiter-Palmon & lilies, 2004) and organizational culture (Hunter, Bedell, & Mumford, 2007). More recently, researchers also have been interested in the implications or intent of the creative idea or solution. Do solutions lead to negative consequences that can be anticipated or even wanted by the problem-solver? Can we find a way to develop ethical and creative solutions?
