shows that ambient noise, an important environmental variable, can affect creativity. Empirical results demonstrate a moderate versus low level of ambient noise enhances performance on creative tasks. A high level of noise hurts creativity. A moderate level of noise increases processing difficulty, inducing a higher construal level and thus promoting abstract processing, which subsequently leads to higher creativity.
I've always suspected that this was personally the case for me. I spend a lot of time working in cafes and I feel more focused and productive in that environment. On occasions when I might be working in the quiet of my home, I sometimes seem easily distracted and not able to get deeply into whatever task is at hand.
Therefore, I was delighted to stumble upon this website. delivers the vibe of a coffee shop right to your desktop, so that when your workspace just isn't quite working, you can find that cafe ambience anywhere.
