Creating while taking turns, the choice to unlocking group creative potential

This study aimed to examine how communication modes affect creative idea generation in groups. Three communication mode conditions were created: natural (N), turn-taking (T), and electronic brainstorming (E). Participants were randomly recruited and grouped in dyads to solve one alternative uses task (AUT) in each condition, during which functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS)-based hyperscanning was used to record interpersonal neural responses. No difference was observed in AUT fluency across the three conditions, but AUT uniqueness was higher in the T condition than in the E condition. In addition, AUT uniqueness, AUT fluency, and perspective-taking behaviours increased faster in the T condition than in the other conditions. The T condition also showed higher perspective-taking behaviours than did the other conditions. Moreover, fNIRS data showed higher interpersonal brain synchronisation (IBS) increments at the right angular gyrus in the T condition than in the other conditions, which positively predicted perspective-taking behaviours between individuals during group creativity tasks. These findings indicate that when group members create together while taking turns, both creative performance and interpersonal interaction processes can be stimulated.Copyright © 2020 The Author(s).

这项研究旨在研究交流模式如何影响小组中的创意产生。创建了三种通信模式条件:自然(N),转弯(T)和电子头脑风暴(E)。随机招募参与者并将其分组,以解决每种情况下的一种替代使用任务(AUT),在此过程中,基于功能近红外光谱(fNIRS)的超扫描用于记录人际神经反应。在这三种条件下,AUT的流利度没有差异,但在T条件下,AUT的唯一性高于E条件。此外,在T条件下,AUT的唯一性,AUT流畅性和视角捕捉行为比其他条件下的增长更快。与其他条件相比,T条件还表现出更高的取景行为。此外,fNIRS数据显示,在T条件下,直角回的人际大脑同步(IBS)增量要高于其他条件,这可以肯定地预测小组创造任务期间个体之间的观点采择行为。这些发现表明,当小组成员轮流一起创造时,可以激发创造力和人际交往过程。版权所有©2020作者。由Elsevier Inc.出版。保留所有权利。
