The lexical hypothesis was used to I think create the 5 factor model of personality.
Has anything similar been done in the science of 'creativity'?
While, clearly, "creativity" is a component of intelligence, even if it is also one in personality.
What got me thinking about this, is the measurement of 'creativity', which is I think notoriously difficult, even more so that aptitude in general. Specifically, I was thinking about how it seems that 'fluency' seems lexically close to some terms close to creativity.
How would general cognitive fluency, as it is measured by cognitive test, correlate with creativity?
- the ability to express oneself easily and articulately.
- a fanciful mental image, typically one on which a person often dwells and which reflects their conscious or unconscious wishes
- the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.
