The aim was to investigate the relationship between creativity and hemispheric asymmetry, as measured by regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). Two groups, each consisting of 12 healthy male subjects, who got either very high or low scores on a creativity test, were pre-selected for the rCBF investigation. rCBF was measured during rest and three verbal tasks:(More)
Eighty-four undergraduate students were randomly divided into left and right visual half-field groups. They were tested in either visual half-field with a percept-genetic test of anxiety and defense mechanisms (the MCT). The subjects also took a test of creative functioning (the CFT) and degree of lateralization in the MCT was related to level of creativity(More)
A percept-genetic test of defence mechanisms (the Meta-Contrast Technique) was given to 169 undergraduate students. Subjects were divided into three groups: two visual half-field groups and one group tested in the regular way. It was hypothesized that the visual field groups would differ from one another and from the control group. An ANOVA showed that the(More)
The relationship between creativity and androgyny was studied in 163 women and men with the Creative Functioning Test (CFT) and the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI). A 2 (femininity: high/low) x 2 (masculinity: high/low) x 2 (sex) ANOVA was conducted on subjects' CFT scores. A significant interaction effect between femininity and masculinity was found showing(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the NycoCard:::CRP test (Nycomed A/S, Oslo, Norway) in relation to ESR in consecutive patients in general practice. NycoCard:::CRP test was also compared with a reference method for CRP quantitation. DESIGN C-reactive protein and ESR were simultaneously measured in 607 consecutive patients at four community health centres. SETTING(More)
The aim was to study whether stimuli that cannot be detected consciously might nevertheless influence subject’s higher cognitive functions, and whether such an effect differs in individuals with different levels of state-trait anxiety, social desirability and “Repressor”. Participants (N = 56) listened to a classical piece of music in which subliminal(More)
The study investigated the relation between teachers’ assessments and creativity tests. Earlier research has shown that teachers are not accurate judges of creativity. We sought to clarify what might bias teachers’ assessments. Results from creativity tests were compared with school children’s self-descriptions and teachers’ ratings of creativity. Sixty-one(More)
The authors investigate the links between playfulness and creative organizational climates established by other research, using play cues—objects and sweets—they provide participants halfway through workplace meetings. Their findings suggest such cues significantly enhance the creative climate and playfulness in workplace meetings without risking meeting(More)
