How Multicultural Learning Experiences Facilitate Creativity – that’s the title of a research paper published earlier this year.
It says, essentially, that if you have more experiences traveling and living abroad then you’ll be more creative in your everyday life.
However, I’d also suggest that the kind of people who are going to live and travel abroad are going to be more creative anyway.
It takes a lot of gumption to leave your home country and head off overseas. It takes a special sort of person who is ready to give up on known, home comforts and live in a bedsit in Thailand or Shanghai for a year with no previous knowledge of what to expect!
