Creative Thinking Abilities of Mexican Youth: The Relationship of Bilingualism
Carringer, Dennis C.
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 5, 4, 492-504, Dec 74
To examine the relationship of bilingualism to the creative thinking abilities of Mexican youth, four subtests from the "Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking" were administered to Spanish-English coordinate bilingual and Spanish monolingual subjects from two private high schools in Mexico. The bilinguals scored significantly higher on the dependent measures, suggesting that the bilingual has an intellectual advantage, at least with respect to creative thinking abilities, over the monolingual.
