Abstract
Creativity is a multifaceted construct that can be studied through multiple perspectives and in different environments. The study investigated how individuals’ descriptions of a creative person at work, and the description of their own creativity at work could relate to, or predict their measured creativity. Participants (N=245) were divided into two groups based on different job-related pre-screeners. The study used a survey where the participants described the creative person and their own creativity at work, and then completed a self-report inventory (K-DOCS), measuring creativity. AI including natural language processing was used to analyze the open-ended questions. Analyses of the semantic measurements indicated that a creative person... (More)
Creativity is a multifaceted construct that can be studied through multiple perspectives and in different environments. The study investigated how individuals’ descriptions of a creative person at work, and the description of their own creativity at work could relate to, or predict their measured creativity. Participants (N=245) were divided into two groups based on different job-related pre-screeners. The study used a survey where the participants described the creative person and their own creativity at work, and then completed a self-report inventory (K-DOCS), measuring creativity. AI including natural language processing was used to analyze the open-ended questions. Analyses of the semantic measurements indicated that a creative person at work was described as imaginative and thoughtful, and the opposite of a creative person was described as boring and lazy. Positive correlations were found between Bipolar SSS (a score of participants own creativity at work related to their descriptions of the creative person) and the domains of K-DOCS, the relationship between Total K-DOCS Score and Bipolar SSS was statistically significant (r =.27, p<.001). Hence, the present study is showing evidence that there is a relation between how people describe a creative person, their own creativity at work and their self-reported creativity. These findings could possibly be used in the future as a basis to guide the development of a new and useful measurement of creativity at work. (Less)
