Non-Cognitive Constructs and Self-Reported Creativity by Domain
Davis, Candice D.; Kaufman, James C.; McClure, Faith H.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v45 n3 p188-202 2011
The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which non-cognitive constructs (personality, thinking styles, motivation, and psychological well-being) would predict self-reported creativity across different domains among 266 college students. Consistent with hypotheses, openness, legislative thinking styles, and intrinsic motivation were significant predictors of overall self-reported creativity and across several domains. Extraversion was also a key predictor. Some other relationships consistent with past research (such as disagreeableness and math/science creativity) were also noted. (Contains 4 tables.)
