The Relationship between Creative Thinking Ability and Creative Personality of Preschoolers
Lee, Kyung-Hwa
International Education Journal, v6 n2 p194-199 May 2005
This study investigates the relationship between creative thinking ability and creative personality of preschoolers. Prior research showed that the correlation coefficient between creative thinking ability and creative personality of teenagers was very low (Hah, 1999), so this research was undertaken to validate the test and to examine how preschoolers would be influenced by sex and age variables. It was conjectured that these prior results would change if subjects were sampled from a much younger age pool, and so, a test instrument (the Integrated Creativity Test) to measure creative thinking ability and creative personality was developed and validated. About 1,000 preschoolers aged 4 to 5 years old were sampled nationwide to verify the relationship between creative thinking ability and creative personality. Then the ICT was administered. The relations between creative thinking ability and creative personality were analysed according to total scores and factors. Creative thinking ability and creative personality were analysed according to sex and age. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
