Being unsociable can lead to creativity

Julie C. Bowker Miriam T. Stotsky & Rebecca G. Etkinb of University of Buffalo NY, USA conducted a study on a sample of young individuals using self-report measures assessing different motivations for social withdrawal, aggression, anxiety sensitivity, etc. along with assessments for creativity, their personalities and social lives. The results of the study revealed an interesting new evidence of a probable benefit associated with unsociability – Creativity. The findings revealed a positive correlation with creativity and the need to be solitary or alone. Thus if you prefer loneliness simply because you like it and not out of dislike of interacting with others, it may be, you are high on creativity. So go ahead, enjoy your solitude, and explore your creative side.
