Columbia management professor sees light in dark moods for creativity

Modupe Akinola, management professor at the Columbia Business School, has a particular interest in the effect of moods on creativity.  Her research shows that negative moods have a positive effect on artistic creativity.

Would such be the same for creativity in business? Do negative moods enhance your creativity at work? Does creative output from being in a negative mood surpass output from a positive one? What are your feelings, thoughts, experiences?

For further info “The Dark Side of Creativity: Biological Vulnerability and Negative Emotions Lead to Greater Artistic Creativity” from Columbia’s ideas@work.
