Experts from the Julius-Maximilian University of Würzburg tried to find out how strong the connection between freedom of movement and creative thinking is. An article with the results of their study was published in the journal Psychological Research.

The scientific experiment involved 60 volunteers who were asked to solve the problem of "alternative use of Guilford". For this purpose, each of the volunteers was given a group of words associated with a particular subject. The participants were then asked to list the uses of these items.

As a result of the experiment, scientists confirmed the assumption that freedom of movement has a positive effect on creative thinking. Even those participants who made minor movements while sitting, showed better results. In this case, according to experts, it is not the movement itself, but the freedom of self-determined movements occurring during the creative process.
