The chapter discusses the existing gap between micro and macro levels in creativity research. Bridging this gap involves a dual process: showing how structural processes create idea-conducive conditions and how personality and identity make it possible to harness these conditions. To that end, a cross-level method is proposed, encompassing identity, networks and the field.
