Creativity is one of the four primary skills in the 21st century, along with critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. It represents a crucial factor for achieving social and economic growth and solving daily life problems. The current dissertation relies on seven studies and aims to deepen the roots of creativity, considering both creative potential (e.g., divergent and convergent thinking) and creative production at different developmental stages. The findings of the seven studies support the idea of creativity as a confluence of the multiplicative interaction amongst individual resources, including cognitive processes and personality traits. In particular, whereas cognition is crucial during the generation of creative thoughts, explaining how creativity is materialised, personality is responsible for the extent to which cognitive processes are used.

Abstract

Creativity is one of the four primary skills in the 21st century, along with critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. It represents a crucial factor for achieving social and economic growth and solving daily life problems. The current dissertation relies on seven studies and aims to deepen the roots of creativity, considering both creative potential (e.g., divergent and convergent thinking) and creative production at different developmental stages. The findings of the seven studies support the idea of creativity as a confluence of the multiplicative interaction amongst individual resources, including cognitive processes and personality traits. In particular, whereas cognition is crucial during the generation of creative thoughts, explaining how creativity is materialised, personality is responsible for the extent to which cognitive processes are used.
