THE 1957 UNIVERSITY OF UTAH RESEARCH CONFERENCE ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF CREATIVE SCIENTIFIC TALENT (2D, BRIGHTON, UTAH, AUGUST 17-20, 1957).
TAYLOR, CALVIN W.
PAPERS PRESENTED AT A 1957 CONFERENCE ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF CREATIVE SCIENTIFIC TALENT ARE INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT. RESEARCH STUDIES AND POSITION PAPERS DEAL WITH THE NATURE, MEASUREMENT, AND ENCOURAGEMENT OF SCIENTIFIC CREATIVITY. STUDIES THAT EXPLORE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN (1) UNDERGRADUATE GRADES AND RESEARCH ABILITY, (2) COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS AND CREATIVE ABILITY, AND (3) PERSONALITY AND ABILITY CHARACTERISTICS AND PRODUCTIVE SCIENTIFIC WORK ARE REPORTED. FACTORS THAT COMPOSE THE "STRUCTURE OF INTELLECT" AND THE DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF INSTRUMENTS FOR THEIR MEASUREMENT ARE DISCUSSED. CONDITIONS CONDUCIVE TO CREATIVE PRODUCTIVITY THAT EXIST IN GRADUATE SCIENCE PROGRAMS AND SOCIAL, CULTURAL, AND EDUCATIONAL FACTORS THAT INHIBIT CREATIVITY ARE USED TO ILLUSTRATE THE DEPENDENCE OF CREATIVE ACTIVITY ON ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS. OTHER PAPERS CONSIDER THE ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT OF INTERESTS, THE MEASUREMENT OF PROBLEM-SOLVING ABILITY, PRIMARY AND SECONDARY CREATIVITY, AND TEACHING PROCEDURES THAT ENCOURAGE CREATIVITY. SEVERAL COMMITTEE REPORTS AND AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH PRESS, BUILDING 303, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH 84112. (AG)
