The purpose of the present study is twofold: (1) to investigate the extent to which changing criteria of creativity influences the selection of subjects with different personality characteristics; and (2) to determine if the selection of different subjects by different criteria of creativity also extends to the different scoring methods which can be applied to the same test of creativity.
The specific hypothesis to be tested in this study are: (1) There will be low or non-significant correlations both between the two specific tests of creativity and between the various methods of scoring each test.; (2) The subjects selected by the various methods will exhibit different personality patterns as demonstrated by their composite need profiles on the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule.
