[en] 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.
