Early-Life Determinants of Children's Creativity: The Rorschach Perspective.
Peske, Patric O.
Using Rorschach inkblots, the author sought investigation and disclosure of early-life determinants of young children's creativity as influenced by home and school environmental experiences. Significant and empirically defined characterological features of children and adults in their lives and children's Rorschach and other examination findings, paired with clinical parent and teacher interviews and observations, are discussed in terms of: (a) specific indices discriminating creative from less creative children; (b) life experiences favoring and impeding emergence of children's creative impulses. Findings clearly indicated that in skilled hands, Rorschach is sensitive to and capable of tapping young children's creative skills, talents, even though same have not been otherwise recognized and/or demonstrated. Findings consistent with the author's previous studies of creative and non-creative adolescents are presented. (Author)
