Vision forming and brain storming. Different aspects of creativity captured by a percept-genetic measurement and traditional measurements of creativity

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk


The relationship between a percept-genetic measurement of creativity and other tests of creativity was investigated. The participants were elementary school children. The relation between self-image and three different creativity measures was also studied. A creative fluency test, a questionnaire about creative activities and a percept-genetic creativity test were used. A self-image inventory measured skills, physical self, psychological health and relationship to others. The results showed that the creativity measures were, to some extent, significantly related, except the cognitive flexibility dimension of the percept-genetic test. One possible explanation was that the percept-genetic test measured another aspect of creativity. This was illustrated in a cluster analysis in relation to self-image.
There were no self-image differences between children with high and low creativity in any of the three measurements. Few gender differences were found.
