The relationship between impulsivity and creative ability. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den aktuella studiens syfte var att undersöka om impulsivitet har ett samband med kreativ förmåga. Studien mätte även självskattad kreativ förmåga, självcensur och motivation. Via en elektronisk enkätundersökning samlades datamaterialet in från 112 deltagare, studenter på Karlstads Universitet. The Barrat Impulsive Scale mätte impulsivitet, ett konsekvenstest mätte kreativ förmåga, mätt i grad av fluens, Creative Self-efficacy mätte självskattade kreativa förmåga, Självcensur mätte i vilken grad deltagarna censurerade sina svar i konsekvenstestet och motivation till att svara på konsekvenstestet mättes med hjälp av bakgrundsfrågor. Resultatet visade inget samband mellan impulsivitet och kreativ förmåga. Dock visade studien att kreativ förmåga har ett positivt samband med motivationen till att svara på konsekvenstestet och deltagarnas självskattade kreativa förmåga. Studien visade även att män censurerar sina svar i konsekvenstestet mer än kvinnor. Slutsatsen i denna studie är att impulsivitet inte påverkar en persons kreativa förmåga. Dock är det viktigt att personen är motiverad och tror på sin egen kreativa förmåga för att få fram sin kreativa förmåga.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to examine whether impulsiveness are associated with a creative ability. An electronic questionnaire survey collected the data from 112 participants, students at Karlstads University. The Barrat Impulsive Scale measured impulsiveness, a Consequense test measured creative ability, measured in degrees of fluency, Creative Self-efficacy measured the self-rated creative ability, Self-censorship measured the degree to which participant´s censored their answers in the Consequense test and the motivation to respond to the Consequense test were measured using the background issues. The results showed no relationship between impulsiveness and creative ability. However, the study showed that creative ability correlated positively with motivation to respond to the Consequense test and the participants self-rated creative ability. The study also showed that men censor their answers in the Consequense test more than women. The conclusion of this study is that impulsivity dose not affect a persons creative ability, however, it is important that the person is motivated and believe in their own creative ability to have a creative ability.
