This research was designed to investigate the relationships between intelligence, personality variables, and creativity. Forty-three males and twenty-seven females in general psychology classes at Fort Hays State College served as subjects. The Otis Quick-Scoring Mental Ability Test, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, and Guilford's Southern California Tests of Intellectual Abilities were administered. Correlations were computed between all variables. Data analysis revealed that a positive correlation exists between intelligence and creativity with little difference in the magnitude of correlations between males and females. Hypochondriasis and Hysteria correlated positively with creativity. Several of Guilford's sub-tests were found to correlate significantly with various personality variables. Sex differences on the creativity tests were found to be insignificant.
