The objective of this study was to compare, through a Confirmatory Factor Analysis, two different theoretical models that explain the operationalized creativity construct with the Verbal Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT), Form B. Model 1 is represented by six factors which correspond to each activity and its respective indicators while Model 2 is integrated by three factors which correspond to each TTCT ability (i.e., Fluency, Originality, and Flexibility) and the corresponding indicators for each variable. The study was carried out with a sample consisting of 432 Spanish-speaking youngsters of both sexes aged 15-26. According to the research findings, the model which showed the most satisfactory fit identifies six correlated factors that correspond to each of the activities proposed (?[superscript 2] = 414.48; df = 116; ?[superscript 2/df] = 3.57; GFI = 0.90; NFI = 0.95; CFI = 0.96 and RMSEA = 0.077). These results are discussed according to its psychometric implications for the construct assessment in different fields.
