There are certain neurological and neurochemical conditions that make particular personality traits more likely. These personality traits cluster into cognitive, social, motivational-affective, and clinical groups. Being high in certain personality dispositions (e.g., being open to experience, driven, norm-doubting, and autonomous, and having unusual and even bizarre associations) function to make creative thought and behavior more likely.
