Journal/Book: J Creative Behav. 1996; 30: 1050 Union Rd, Buffalo, NY 14224. Creative Educ Foundation Inc. 188-196.
Abstract: This paper outlines a framework for understanding the motivation of certain creative behaviors from the perspective of symbolic interactionism. The fundamental tenets of symbolic interactionism are described, followed by a discussion of the mechanics of symbolic interactionist-based role-identity theory, and how the theory can be applied to the motivation of creative behavior. The paper also addresses directions for practical application and future research in this area.
