ABSTRACT

Feeling of well-being and happiness can be experienced through creativity. one can enjoy being creative for the sake of exploration and invention which has over generations enhanced human society’s ability to survive in this unpredictable world ,or one can practice creativity in the pursuit of day to day activities or at work and be happy. Hence creativity is an important construct for promoting happiness. The query lies in discovering whether all persons are creative or a few persons are endowed with this positive virtue. Is creativity related to intelligence? The relationship between creativity and intelligence has been subject to empirical research for decades yet there is no consensus on how these constructs are related. Therefore the main purpose of this research was to study the relationship between intelligence and creativity in adolescents. Major objective chosen are (i) to measure the relationship between creativity and intelligence (ii) to measure the difference between boys and girls in intelligence and creativity. The study was conducted on 30 girls and 30 boys, aged 12-18 by purposive sampling technique. The data was obtained by the administration of the two non- verbal scales (i) standard progressive matrices by Raven (ii) test of creative thinking by Baqer Mehdi. Results revealed that (i) intelligence and creativity were positively correlated (ii) significant differences existed between boys and girls on creativity and no difference were found on intelligence. The study further highlighted the ways and means of enhancing creativity.
