Senior Scholar Interview - Christopher Cohrs - ISPP.org

Tânia Mealha's insight:
What led you to become a political psychologist?

The question presumes that I “am” a political psychologist… I might be, but whether I consider myself as one always depends on the context. Usually I would prefer seeing myself as a social psychologist with a strong interest in socio-political issues.

I was already interested in understanding socio-political issues (including environmental issues) before I started studying psychology at university. During my studies, I co-organized a couple of student-initiated psychology courses on socio-political issues. However, the decisive factor was that when I was about to work on my thesis (beginning of 1999), the Kosovo war was prepared and then launched. So I decided to do my thesis on people’s attitudes toward the Kosovo war and investigated possible reasons why people supported the war. Since then, I really focused on research on socio-political issues, such as patriotism, right-wing extremism, and war.

Study Reveals Global Creativity Gap

Preocupação universal de que a criatividade está diminuindo em empresas e escolas
Uma nova pesquisa revela uma falta mundial de criatividade em cinco das maiores economias do mundo, segundo o estudo global State of Create, realizado pela Adobe. O estudo mostra que oito em cada dez pessoas sentem que é fundamental despertar a criatividade para o crescimento da economia, e quase dois terços dos participantes acredita que a criatividade é valiosa para a sociedade, ainda que uma minoria – apenas uma em cada quatro pessoas – acredita que esteja realizando seu próprio potencial criativo.

As entrevistas, que foram realizadas com cinco mil adultos dos Estados Unidos, Reino Unido, Alemanha, França e Japão, mostram atitudes e crenças surpreendentes sobre a criatividade, com novos insights a respeito do papel da criatividade em negócios, educação e sociedade.
