depression and creativity

Posted by badhaircut on May 24, 2005, at 11:32:35

In reply to Kramer on depression on radio Tuesday, posted by badhaircut on May 22, 2005, at 12:54:08

Sometimes people say that certain creative people require depression in order to be creative.

In the show, Kramer said there's some evidence that people who are *prone* to depression are in fact more likely to be "creative," but the condition itself does not promote creativity. He says every study done on it suggests that people are less creative when depressed and more creative when not depressed.
