Physical Environment in Relation to Creativity and Intelligence.
Gupta, Ram K.; Mohan, Madan
Research was performed to determine whether: (1) highly creative subjects would obtain higher scores on tests of crativity in an enriched environment, (2) subjects who are poor in creativity will not obtain higher scores because of low perceptual curiosity, and (3) high- and low-intelligence subjects would score equally well on creativity. The population for the research consisted of grade five students. These students answered a peer nomination questionnaire and the Canadian Lorge Thorndike Intelligence Test, Form 1, Level C. Their teacher also completed the teacher nomination questionnaire. On the basis of these measures, 64 subjects were selected. The results are tabulated and discussed. The most important of the educational implications of the findings is that both low- and high-creative subjects are able to utilize appropriate cues from the physical environment while answering Torrance Tests of Creativity, demonstrating the value of enriched and varied environment. The same does not apply to above and below average IQ groups of subjects. Appendixes provide the Peer Nomination Questionnaire and the Teacher Nomination Questionnaire. (DB)
