ABSTRACT

As humans we all like to be creative and break any kind of monotony; Chronotype and Creativity influence our performance and makes life more enjoyable. An individual’s chronotype has been linked with their personality, cognitive abilities, and performance. However, the link between chronotype and creativity is not well established. Despite there being research analyzing the effect on sleep on creativity, conclusive data linking chronotype and creativity is sparse. A sample of engineering students (N=100), were administered self-assessment questionnaires to measure their creativity and chronotype. Chronotype was measured using the Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire (MEQ), while creativity was assessed using Kaufman’s Domains of Creativity (K-DOCS). The data obtained were then analyzed. The study found no significant correlation between chronotype and creativity except in the domain of Performance creativity. Performance creativity was found to be positively correlated with morning-type individuals. No significant gender difference was observed.
