Abstract/Summary The mixed impacts of mood states on creativity call for reconciliation. Contrary to the prevailing notion that positive moods foster creativity, an emerging body of research suggests that negative moods can also boost creativity, and even that positive moods may impair creativity. More recent research suggests that the dual-moods, instead of singular positive or negative moods, can jointly foster creativity, opening a new avenue for mood-creativity research. Nevertheless, the current research which focuses on static mood states is still inadequate to explain the dynamic impacts of moods on creativity over time. To answer this question, we propose that a bidirectional moodregulatory process can reconcile the mixed impacts of dual-moods on creativity with respect to mood changes, and discuss possible research approaches.
