Creativity in Character
Three types of characteristics that combine to produce individual creativity:
o Personality traits
o Cognitive abilities
o Biographical traits
Inherited vs. nurtured
o There will be large differences in personality, mental traits, experiences
and capabilities among those called “creative.”
Creativity and Intelligence
Is there a relationship?
o No
Getzels and Jackson (1962)
Differentiated between highly intelligent and highly creative
through demonstrating low correlation between IQ and creativity
scores.
o Yes
Walberg and Zeiser (1997)
“The most common psychological trait is intelligence.”
The Creativity Threshold?
Threshold Theory
o MacKinnon (1978)
Demonstrated that a base level of intellectual ability is essential for
creative productivity.
Above the threshold, however, there is virtually no relationship
between measured intelligence and creativity.
IQ= 120 for threshold (approximate.)
Heteroscedasticity: “It’s complicated.”
Creative ability is on a continuum.
Training and practice improve your ability.
Characteristics of the Creative Personality
Aware of creativeness
Original
Independent
Risk-taking
High energy
Curious
Sense of humor
Capacity of fantasy
