Qiang, Ruichao; Han, Qin; Guo, Yongyu; Bai, Jie; Karwowski, Maciej – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
This study explores the relationship between critical thinking disposition and scientific creativity and examines the hypothesized mediating role played by creative self-concept (trait-like creative self-efficacy). A large sample (N = 1,153) of Chinese high school students filled the Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory and revised trait-like…

da Costa, Carla Gomes; Zhou, Qin; Ferreira, Aristides I. – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
Drawing on the specific emotion approach, and based on the emotional regulation theory and cognitive and activation perspectives on emotions, this study examined the differentiated impact of state and trait anger on creative process engagement (CPE) and the moderating influences of emotion reappraisal and suppression. Data were obtained from daily…

Sternberg, Robert J. – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
Creativity testing as it is now done is often based on a defective assumption that different kinds of creativity can be compressed into a single unidimensional scale. There is no reason to believe that the different kinds of creativity represent, simply, different amounts of a single unidimensional construct. The article shows how three different…

van der Linden, Dimitri; Dutton, Edward; Madison, Guy – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
There are national differences in scientific activity that are not well accounted for by economic and intellectual factors alone. We examine the novel hypothesis that androgen levels may also play a role. Androgens are often referred to as male hormones, but are present in both men and women, and have been linked to performance in other domains,…

Oven, Alenka; Lobe, Bojana – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
Although creativity is an important aspect of occupational therapy theory and practice, there have been few studies that would explore this concept in the context of the occupational therapy process. This was the first qualitative study of creativity in occupational therapy in Slovenia. It was conducted as part of a larger mixed-methods study and…

Lebuda, Izabela; Csikszentmihalyi, Mihaly – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
The aim of the article was to investigate how the family life of highly creative individuals--mainly marriages or romantic relationships--is related to their sense of success and well-being. Previous studies have led to conflicting conclusions. The predominant finding has been that marriage and family constitute an obstacle to creative potential…

Petrou, Paraskevas; van der Linden, Dimitri; Salcescu, Oana Catalina – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
Drawing on theoretical views of creative deviance, the present study hypothesized that employees with a tendency to break rules are more creative at their jobs (Hypothesis 1). Furthermore, we expected that this is particularly the case when employees face high problem-solving demands (i.e., they are expected to be creative) but at the same time…

Xue, Yukang; Gu, Chuanhua; Wu, Jingjing; Dai, David Yun; Mu, Xiaolin; Zhou, Zongkui – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
The present study tested the effects of extrinsic motivation on scientific and artistic creativity among Chinese middle school students. In Study 1, a between-groups design was applied to examine the effects of expected rewards on scientific and artistic creativity among 123 students, and in Study 2 the same design was applied to examine the…

Javed, Basharat; Khan, Abdul Karim; Arjoon, Surendra; Mashkoor, Maria; Haque, Adnan ul – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
Drawing on trait activation theory, we examine ethical leadership as a boundary condition on the relationship between openness to experience and innovative work behavior. We collected data from 291 subordinates and 51 supervisors to test our theoretical model. Our results suggest that openness to experience was positively related to innovative…

Leung, Angela K.-Y.; Liou, Shyhnan; Tsai, Ming-Hong; Koh, Brandon – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
As people working in groups might fare better in solving complex problems than those working alone (e.g., Laughlin, Hatch, Silver, & Boh, "Journal of Personality and Social Psychology," 90, 2006 and 644), organizations have increasingly assigned creative projects to groups. Group members contribute their collective efforts over time…

Li, Hui; Jin, Hui; Chen, Tongyang – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
This study proposed that job crafting serves as a mechanism reflecting how proactive personality affects creative performance, and this study explored whether these relationships are moderated by high-involvement work systems. Drawn from the conservation of resources theory to develop a cross-level moderated mediation model, a three-wave…

Forthmann, Boris; Lips, Corinna; Szardenings, Carsten; Scharfen, Jana; Holling, Heinz – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
In this study, we focus on mental speed and divergent thinking, examining their relationship and the influence of task speededness. Participants (N = 109) completed a set of processing speed tasks and a test battery measuring divergent thinking. We used two speeded divergent-thinking tasks of 2 minutes and two unspeeded tasks of 8 minutes to test…

Fürst, Guillaume – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
This paper introduces a method for the assessment of creativity that relies on creativity tasks, a subjective evaluation procedure, and a planned missing data design that offers a drastic reduction in the overall implementation costs (administration time and scoring procedure). This method was tested on a sample of 149 people, using three…

Salvi, Carola; Costantini, Giulio; Pace, Adriana; Palmiero, Massimiliano – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
The scientific approach to the study of creative problem-solving has shifted from using classic insight problems (e.g., the "Nine-dots" problem), toward sets of problems that have more robust psychometric properties, such as the Remote Associate Test (RAT). Because it is homogeneous, compact, quickly solvable, and easy to score, the RAT…

Kapoor, Hansika; Khan, Azizuddin – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
Given the recent emphasis on exploring valence in creative behavior, this study examines negative creativity via a person-situation interactionist perspective. By manipulating goal valence (uses or misuses) and object valence (positive or negative), four conditions of an adapted Divergent Thinking task were used to predict positive and negative…
