Creativity and breast cancer

Smith, Gudmund LU ; Lilja, Åsa LU and Salford, Leif LU (2002) In Creativity Research Journal 14(2). p.157-162
Abstract
A study performed in a group of 59 premenopausal women. For the majority it could be shown that creativity, as measured by the Creative Functioning Test, correlated with a favorable prognosis. It was concluded that suppression of aggression could be a negative factor in the development of cancer growth. In a small group with comedo carcinoma these relations were reversed. Test results suggested that these patients could not handle their aggression in a constructive manner.
