COSTA, Silvia da et al. Personal factors of creativity: a second order meta-analysis. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.3, pp.165-173. ISSN 2174-0534.

This article integrates seven meta-analyses of individual factors associated with creativity and innovation and reports effects based on one (r) or two or more (¯r) meta-analyses. Emotional intelligence (r = .31), divergent thinking (¯r = .27), openness to experience (¯r = .22), creative personality (¯r = .21), intrinsic motivation (¯r = .20), positive affect (¯r = .19), and androgyny (r = .19) are related to creativity. Age (r = .17), intelligence (¯r = .17), extraversion (¯r = .13), self-efficacy (¯r = .13), and extrinsic motivation (r = .11) were also moderately associated with innovation. Pro-risk attitudes (r = .08) and being female (r = .07) were weakly associated with creativity. Results are discussed, explanatory processes described, and practical implications for organizations examined.

Keywords : Creativity; Innovation; Gender; Motivation; Creative personality.
