Integrative complexity

Integrative complexity is a measure of a person's capacity to differentiate the intricacies of reality while at the same time integrating these complexities into a unified perspective. As Simonton explains (1984: 54),

A person who is high in conceptual complexity's one who perceives the world in a multidimensional and flexible manner, simultaneously considers diverse viewpoints, and yet manages to integrate all these inputs into a single perspective. A person who lacks conceptual complexity tends to reject information that does not fit within rigid preconceived schemes and tends to be submissive to authority.
