Scientists use “Cities: Skylines” video game to shed light on the link between personality disorders and complex problem-solving ability

A study investigating the association between personality traits and the ability to solve complex problems found that schizotypal, histrionic, dependent, and depressive persons are less likely to successfully solve problems. Persons with more pronounced resilience, action orientation, and motivation for creation are more likely to successfully solve complex problems. The study was published in Frontiers in Psychology.
