Original Thinking in Preschool Children

Abstract

3 sets of findings demonstrated that the Guilford-Mednick conceptualization of original thinking is applicable to preschool (N = 47, mean age 4-6) as well as to older children. Original thinking as measured by the Wallach and Kogan Creativity Battery was shown to be distinct from intelligence as measured by the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence. Quantity of ideational output was related to its originality. A stronger order effect, that is, popular responses occurring earlier and original responses later in the response sequence, was evidenced for high than for low original subjects.
