A self-image inventory measured skills, physical self, psychological health and relationship to others. The results showed that the creativity measures were, to some extent, significantly related, except the cognitive flexibility dimension of the percept-genetic test. One possible explanation was that the percept-genetic test measured another aspect of creativity. This was illustrated in a cluster analysis in relation to self-image.

There were no self-image differences between children with high and low creativity in any of the three measurements. Few gender differences were found. (Less)
