Dr. Adam Perkins is a London-based neurobiologist who studies personality.  One of the five accepted dimensions of personality is neuroticism.  New research has shown that high scorers on the neuroticism scale tend to be more creative.  Could this finally be the answer to the questions ‘Are we all creative?’  and ‘Are we born with a creative gene?’.  In this short Creative Cut documentary, Dr. Perkins shares his medical research and his personal opinions on creativity and creative greats such as Vincent van Gogh, Charles Darwin and Frank Whittle.
