Kuijt, L. van der Kleij, R. Publication year 2011 Abstract This study examines the effects of spatial characteristics of meeting rooms on the divergent phase in the creativity process of a group and on the mood states arousal and psychological safety. Thirty participants (12 male and 18 female) were randomly allocated to 10 mixed-gender three-person groups. They performed two creativity tasks in three different rooms: neutral, with high arousal and with high psychological safety. Overall impression of the meeting room interiors, psychological safety, arousal and creative performance were measured with questionnaires. HRV was used as physiological measure. Results showed that physical space affected arousal and the impression of the meeting rooms. HRV appeared to be a good predictor for arousal. A relation was found between HRV and idea originality. An interaction effect between meeting room interior and task was found. It may be concluded that the meeting room interior has to be adapted to the type of creativity task to gain optimal results. © 2011 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
