You always see those studies of how creativity goes up when you do such-and-such a task or eat such-and-such a thing or do it in some weird way, like this
. The paper is here
, and the study itself seems to use objects related to freedom and anagram solving for words semantically related to freedom.
Is there a fairly complete listing online of all the ways that creativity could be measured and is measured by psychologists, sociologists, etc? Book, article, website, whatever? Additionally, how do people usually control these studies? What are the elements of experiment design of these studies?
My ultimate answer would come up and say, "hey, there's a book not unlike "The Mismeasure of Man" was for anthropometry that talks about the experiment design of a lot of experiments in this field thoroughly."
