Creativity and the Big Two model of personality: plasticity and stability
Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences
The general conclusion from recent research on the Big Two dimensions of human personality — Plasticity (extraversion and openness) and Stability (neuroticism, agreeableness, and conscientiousness) — show that Plasticity has a more robust and stronger association with creativity than Stability. More specifically, people who are high in plasticity and low in stability may be most likely to exhibit creative thought and behavior. Moreover, current research in neuroscience, genetics and neurochemistry of behavior each suggest biological mechanisms for how these personality qualities lower thresholds for creative thought and behavior.
