Summary

This nationwide study was concerned with the relation of personality traits, classroom behavior, and student-teacher relationships to creativity in college teaching. Creative teachers were identified by Ph.D. students who had studied under the teachers and who nominated them as having had the most facilitating effect on their creative development, or as having had a significant inhibiting effect. The classroom behavior and student-teacher relations for a total of 671 teachers were described by nominating students, and 492 of these completed the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire, the Ghiselli Self-Description Inventory, the Barron-Welsh Art Scale, and several biographical items. Results indicate introversion, dominance, and self-sufficiency to be associated with creativity. Support was also provided for association of greater esthetic sensitivity and less adherence to social mores with creative teaching in psychology. Clear-cut behavioral patterns differentiate teachers who facilitate creative development from those who hinder it. Encouragement through individual contact is found to be the most important aspect of student-teacher relationships affecting creativity. The classroom was found to be of lesser importance.
