Creativity, Birth Order, and Preference for Symmetry
Eisenman, Russell; Schussel, Nancy Robinson
J Consult Clin Psychol, 34, 2, 275-280, 70 Apr
Four hundred fifty college students were given three measures of creativity: (a) complexity-simplicity preference, (b) Personal Opinion Survey, and (c) an unusual uses test. The intercorrelation of the creativity measures ranged .45-.83 (p's is less than .001), and a striking birth-order effect was found: later-born males were significantly less creative than firstborn males on all measures.
