Gary Gute, director, Creative Life Research Center and associate professor, School of Applied Human Sciences, and Deanne Gute, associate director, Creative Life Research Center, will present "Complexity as a Catalyst for Flow and Creativity in the Early Family Lives of Highly Creative People." Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided. Forty years of creativity literature has identified complexity and flow as central to the lives of creative persons. However, research has not sufficiently explored the influence of complexity within the family in shaping adult creativity. This presentation reports the results of a study (Gute, Gute, Nakamura, & Csikszentmihalyi) that explored complexity in the early family lives of nine creative exemplars who have made significant contributions to contemporary culture.
