Personality Correlates of Depressive Style in Autobiographies of Creative Achievers.
Walker, A. Marie; And Others
Journal of Creative Behavior, v29 n2 p75-94 1995
This study compared neurotic and depressive personality characteristics in autobiographies of creative achievers (n=30) versus eminent but noncreative achievers (n=18). California Q-Set ratings assessed the five personality factors of neuroticism, extroversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. Creative achievers were rated significantly higher on neuroticism, depressive style, and impulsivity. (Author/DB)
