Synesthesia, creativity and puns.

Abstract

The relationship between self-reported synesthesia, or sensory mixing, and verbal creativity as measured by the Remote Associates Test and pun generation was assessed. 210 participants responded online. Analysis yielded a significant correlation between scores on Synesthesia and Verbal Creativity as measured. The possibility that Synesthesia and Verbal Creativity stem from dedifferentiated thinking processes or neural cross-activation is discussed.
