Title

A Comparison of the Concept of Overexcitabilities with Measures of Creativity and School Achievement in Sixth Grade Students.

Description

This was an investigation of 12 gifted and 12 randomly selected sixth-grade students to determine the relationship between levels of overexcitability and scores on the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking and the California Achievement Test. Responses to the Overexcitability Questionnaire were compared to the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking Verbal and Figural subtests via a Pearson r correlation and a Mann-Whitney test of significance. Subjects who scored in the top third on the Verbal subtest of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking had significantly higher imaginational Overexcitability scores than those who scored in the lower third, whereas those whose scores were in the top third on the Figural subtest had significantly higher Psychomotor Overexcitability scores.
