Alicia Isis De Miguel Martín

Student thesis: Master thesis


In this paper, creativity nature and its underpinnings are examined thoroughly. It is an essential phenomenon product of humans mental processes, crucial for personal and social development. Similarly, this project also explores the crucial role that emotions in human behavior, and how they may influence creative potential and performance. I have attempted to collect the most important knowledge developed up until today in order to provide with a valid framework for the comprehension of both concepts and its implications at the individual and at the group level.
All the knowledge acquired along the study of these domains is put into practice through the application of the theory to a real case based on a professional challenge and opportunity. In order to accomplish that goal, I have reflected on my experience by using an autoethnographic style.
