Inebriation and Inspiration?: A Review of the Research on Alcohol and Creativity
Karlstad University, Faculty of Economic Sciences, Communication and IT, Department of Psychology.
1999 (English)In: Journal of Creative Behavior, 33, 7-29Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

There is a conception that a uniquely positive correlation prevails between the

intake of alcohol and creativity, but only a few experimental studies address this subject.

Existing studies together with recent experiments are reviewed. This later series of

experiments explored whether or not moderate alcohol intoxication (1.0 ml of 100%

alcohol/kg body weight) facilitated different phases of the creative process, i.e.

preparation, incubation, illumination, verification and restitution. A hypothesis is derived

which postulates that modest alcohol consumption inhibits aspects of creativity based

mainly on the secondary process (preparation, certain parts of illumination, and

verification), and disinhibits those based mainly on the primary process (incubation,

certain parts of illumination, and restitution)
