Abstract

Compared conceptually near vs. far cues on a creative problem solving task.
Group of 171 randomly allocated to 3 groups, 2 experimental groups used near and far cues (counterbalanced), 1 control group.
Given 2 problems and asked to come up with solutions in set time.
Measured fluency, quality, flexibility and originality.
Overall, controls performed better than those given cues.
Does giving cues constrain the idea generation process?
