The present research investigates the cognitive and conative profile underlying scientific creativity in psychology. An innovative creativity test including, both, divergent and convergent thinking, was used. Whereas the analysis focused on intelligence in the cognitive domain, it focused on personality in the conative domain. The sample consisted of 121 social science students. Results stayed in line with the established hypotheses. Intelligence played a major role for scientific creativity in psychology. With regard to personality, openness and negative agreeableness additionally favored scientific creativity in psychology. In future research, the profile of scientific creativity could be compared with the one of artistic creativity and everyday creativity. [less ▲]

This study analyses the relationship between creativity and personality in different cultural contexts. A multivariate approach to creativity implies that personal and contextual characteristics influence creative performance. Is the relationship between creativity and personality the same in different cultural contexts? Within education the cultural factor might have more impact than in other environments because of assimilationism of migrant students. This study is carried out in London and the Greater Region of Luxembourg. The sample consists of 243 participants (199 women, 44 men, MAge = 20.35, SD = 1.56, age range: 18-32 years). Whereas the correlation between creativity and openness is positive for non-immigrants (European), it is negative for immigrants (non-European). This highly surprising exploratory result can be related to migration. A possible mediator between creativity and openness might be individual differences linked to migration, i.e. uncertainty avoidance. Implications of results will be discussed. [less ▲]
