Examines the effects of trait intrinsic and extrinsic motivations, measured by the Work Preference Inventory, on creativity and academic performance. In an experimental creative writing task, intrinsic motivation correlated with creativity. In a follow-up study, intrinsic motivation correlated negatively with year-1 GPA, whereas extrinsic motivation correlated positively. Findings suggest that our college environment discourages intrinsic motivation and creativity. (Contains 30 references and 6 tables.) (Author)
