Abstract

FREIBERG-HOFFMANN, Agustín; VIGH, Carlos  and  FERNANDEZ-LIPORACE, Mercedes. Creative Personality Scale. A new version for college students from Argentina. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.2, pp.290-299.  Epub May 01, 2019. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.35.2.346131.

Creativity and actions aimed at fostering it became a matter of interest in higher education. Since creativity is a complex phenomenon, its multiple dimensions must be assessed. Among them, personality arises as the most relevant one. Therefore, the local adaptation of Gough’s Creative Personality Scale to be used in college students is presented. Examinees must indicate, among a list of adjectives/items, whether they feel described by each one of them or not. Two independent samples (n= 150 each) were employed to develop an exploratory factor analysis and an internal consistency analysis on the one hand, and a confirmatory factor analysis and a convergent validity study on the other.

The exploratory procedure retained eight items and a 1-dimension structure with a good internal consistency (ordinal Alpha= .853). This model was empirically verified by the confirmatory analysis which showed good fit indices, as well as an adequate internal consistency coefficient. Moreover, adequate convergent validity evidences were obtained. Findings are discussed considering the theoretical model and the study weaknesses along with practical and theoretical outcomes. Further research lines are outlined.
