The Relationship between Creativity and Conformity among Preschool Children.
Van Hook, Cheryl W.; Tegano, Deborah W.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v36 n1 p1-16 1st Qtr 2002
This study investigated the relationship between creativity and conformity (social conformity and impersonal conformity) with 45 preschool children. Findings support the hypothesis that highly conforming and highly nonconforming children do not score as highly on creativity measurements as children in the freedom of expression group (i.e., not following a rigid pattern of conforming/nonconforming).
