An article at The Scientific American:

"Openness to Experience and Creative Achievement"
by Scott Barry Kaufman
(http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/beautiful-minds/2013/11/25/openness-to-experience-and-creative-achievement/)
"Openness to experience - the drive for cognitive exploration of inner and outer experience - is the personality trait most consistently associated with creativity."

IMHO, well worth studying for anyone interested in 'how learners learn'.

I believe Dr Kaufman could actually go considerably further than he has done in his article - sound evidence would not be impossible to find.
