Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2014/Creativity and emotion
Hello :) I have just read through your chapter and so far it is really interesting creativity is a really interesting topic, i like how you have provided a really good definition of emotions, and included some of the history surrounding emotions, also i really like how you have talked about the relationship between emotion and creativity so far, obviously you still have more to add, so I'm really looking forward to reading the complete chapter :) --U3080857 (discuss • contribs) 09:19, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Editing picture size
Hey! Chapter looks awesome so far, loads of information! In regards to your question on editing picture size insert the usual syntax:
and change your pixels to the size you wish. Eg. 640x480 (widthxheight)
Hope this helps, If you need further direction look here ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Picture_tutorial
Hi! This looks really great- I'm interested to see where you go with the rest of the chapter. Looking at the link between emotion and creativity and how we can regulate our emotions to effect creativity I thought this article might be helpful: http://zh9bf5sp6t.scholar.serialssolutions.com/?sid=google&auinit=CKW&aulast=De+Dreu&atitle=Hedonic+tone+and+activation+level+in+the+mood-creativity+link:+toward+a+dual+pathway+to+creativity+model.&id=doi:10.1037/002235220.127.116.119&title=Journal+of+personality+and+social+psychology&volume=94&issue=5&date=2008&spage=739&issn=0022-3514. Hopefully that has some good ideas! --U3068695 (discuss • contribs) 01:35, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I just noticed you haven’t included any case studies yet, this article has some really interesting information about Vincent van Gogh and how he suffered from bipolar when he created some of his masterpieces. Hope this helps.

Thanks heaps for your feedback on my page, I really appreciate it!
Your page is looking great, I love the gifs- they give it a bit of life!
I've made some minor changes (commmas, some random s' put on or removed etc) and have a couple of suggestions:
You've used induce twice in the sentence starting 'Ways to induce...'. You could use prompt, promote, elicit or even spark in the second instance.
With this sentence 'As these three concepts are highly related many studies have only focused on one particular aspect, mainly affect, as emotions are relatively hard to induce in laboratory experiments especially due to them being highly specific', I think you could take the especially out and it might read a little smoother. That or I would separate it into two sentences. I think I'd then make 'Positive and negative emotions' another paragraph. I'd then consider moving the next sentence (Emotions have a vast...) up to the first line - I think it would lead in nicely.
I'm not sure if it's just me (it is the end of the day!) but the following sentence says 'beetween', but I'm not sure what you're comparing: Although original research did not account for the influence of emotions on creativity, this did change with the development of theories and research linking between ‘mad-geniuses’ in creative industries such as Edvard Munch, and Vincent Van Gogh, however this is not to say that an individual has to have an excess amount of emotion to be creative
I'd consider taking the 'as' out of the beginning of this sentence: As creativity like emotion is one that requires a more developed level of processing, and therefore may even share some similar underlying mechanisms (Averill, 1999).
I think you might need to take 'during' out of this sentence, or reword it: It is during this expansion that fosters creative thinking.
I noticed that the names of your theories are in bold. You may want to check this is APA standard. Also, if you're going to keep them bold you would need to be consistent (they aren't in the summary).
At the bottom of Emotional Ambivalence you have two consecutive sentences that have 'other studies' at the beginning, you might want to reword one (even if you changed one to research instead of studies).
You may want to break this sentence into two: Similar to other studies, many include university students because they are easily accessible, however they may be used to being creative and being asked to complete tasks within settings that people in everyday life would not, therefore more research may need to include different ages, backgrounds and occupations in order to gain a more comprehensive overview of the influence of emotions on creativity (Fong, 2006)
The paragraph Does emotion really influence creativity? - really good read! I wonder if you could draw the personality stuff into some of the paragraphs above (I know, that could be too tricky, just an idea).
In the summary - I wonder if there's another word that would fit better than 'implicate', maybe connect?
With this sentence: However there is still much disparity among which emotions have the biggest influence according to the broaden and build theory of positive emotions, positive emotions allow greater expansion of thoughts leading to more creative ideas (Fredrickson, 2001). You've got 'positive emotions' twice backing onto each other. Maybe separate into 2 sentences.
Other than that, it's a good read and very interesting. Well done!
I recommend using APA style captions i.e., Figure 1, Figure 2 etc. for all images, graphs etc. and Table 1, Table 2 etc. for all tables. The caption text should not be in italics.

Hi there, I have noticed your are just about finished your Chapter, you have provided excellent information on all aspects of your topic, the pictures flow really well with the sections you have inluded them in , you have very few errors, i did however pick up a small problem, it is in the first sentence of creativity, you mention new idea twice, i think perhaps changing the wording a little may be beneficial, as i said a very minor problem. I also looked through your reference list and their appears to be no discrepancies there. overall i think you have done a great job!! well done :) --U3080857 (discuss • contribs) 02:55, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
