Summary

The relationship between creativity and perception was examined in two studies that correlated a combined total of 11 tests of perception (e.g., figure-ground and physiognomy) and creativity (e.g., remote associates and figure preferences). Four of the tests dealt with perception, five with creativity, and two with both. Since several of the tests had two or three scores, there was a total of 21 scores. Three tests were administered under controlled time conditions in a group setting. The tests were administered to two groups of undergraduates (five men and eight women, and three men and 11 women, respectively). Across both studies, a modest number of tests were significantly correlated, including a correlation of 0.61 between all perception and creativity scores combined. Results suggest that creativity might be increased if it were preceded by a perceptual kind of "warm-up." A set to respond visually could act as a "rehearsal" to increase examinees' attention, sensitivity, and awareness--qualities needed to solve problems creatively. Since the subject pools for these two studies were small, these conclusions should be taken cautiously. The testing methodology used and two data tables are appended. (TJH)
