Joy, Stephen
Journal of Creative Behavior, v35 n1 p51-64 1st Qtr 2001

The need to be different predicted unusual category exemplars, word associations, and uses for common objects. Innovation motivation accounted for significant variance over that attributable to general knowledge and verbal fluency. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
