Student's self-rated creative potential in relation to Self-efficacy and Evaluation apprehension (English)
Abstract [en]

Research in the field of creativity has long focused at the differences in personality regarding creative achievement. In recent years, research regarding social psychological factors on creativity has increased. It has previously been studied if the belief in one’s own creative abilities and fear of negative evaluation affects creativity, where confidence in own ability seems to be an important factor for creativity, while fear of negative evaluation has given mixed results. The purpose of this study was to examine what relationship self-rated creative potential and fear of others' judgment have to the variables self-rated creative fluency, self-rated creative originality, worry and withholding of ideas through a survey. 115 university students participated in the study. The method was quantitative with a deductive approach. Data were analyzed by analysis of variance and correlations. The results showed a significant difference between participants with high self-rated creative potential and participants with low self-rated creative potential for self-rated creative fluency and originality. No difference in worry and withholding of ideas in relation to self-rated creative potential was demonstrated. The main finding was that those who had higher self-reported fear of evaluation also had higher self-reported tendency to withhold ideas. This may mean that some people might be considered more creative than others simply because they actually dare to share their ideas.
