Travel Makes You Smarter

A new study has determined that traveling actually makes you smarter.  According to data collected by William W. Maddux, associate professor of  organizational behavior at INSEAD in France, there is a direct  correlation between students' “multicultural engagement” and  “integrative complexity.” 

More specifically, the research found that  students who experienced other cultures were able to hold conflicting  viewpoints at the same time and that those who hadn't weren't able to  accept different perspectives quite as easily. Maddux's findings also  claimed that students in his program who had traveled and explored  different cultures were presented with more job opportunities than the  ones who hadn’t.
