The Georgia Tech researchers found that daydreamers tend to have better-connected default mode networks when they're relaxed, meaning that their brains work more efficiently The tests measured creativity and fluid intelligence – or problem solving ability – and included a survey asking how often the participants found their minds wandering.‘People who had higher creativity, higher fluid intelligence, and higher connectivity in their default mode networks tended to mind-wander more,’ Dr Schumacher says.‘What these data show is that this idea that most of us have that mind-wandering is a failure of control.
It shows that there are some cases where mind-wandering may not be maladaptive,’ he says.

Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology found that people whose minds tend to wander from the task at hand tend to score higher for intelligence and creativity.
