Montreal, Jan 28 (IANS) When it comes to the creative juices, some people have a faster flow than others as creativity is closely tied to culture, new research at the Concordia University has found.

The study compared nearly 300 individuals from Taiwan, a collectivist society, and Canada, a more individualistic country.

Individualists displayed greater overconfidence,”said Gad Saad, professor at Concordia’s John Molson School of Business.

When it came to the quality of ideas produced, the collectivist scored marginally higher than the individualists.
