Test: Ne kadar yaratıcısın?

Sizin belirleyeceğiniz mümkün olduğunca birbiriyle alakasız 10 kelimeye göre yaratıcılığınızı ölçen; bir test.

Bu 4 dakikalık kelime testi size şunu söyleyebilir: içinizde ne kadar yaratıcı potansiyel var, ne kadar yaratıcısın?

Yaratıcılığın ölçülmesi uzun yıllardır zor kabul edilen bir şeydir. Ancak McGill Üniversitesi, Harvard Üniversitesi ve Melbourne Üniversitesi’nden uluslararası bir araştırmacı topluluğu, dört dakikalık bir test ile insanların içerisinde ne kadar yaratıcı potansiyel olduğunu ortaya çıkarabileceğini iddia ediyor.

McGill Psikiyatri Bölümü’nden doktora mezunu ve Harvard’da doktora sonrası araştırmacı olan Olsen, “Yaratıcılık insan yaşamının temelidir” diyor. “Karmaşıklığını ne kadar çok anlarsak, yaratıcılığın tüm biçimlerini o kadar iyi besleyebiliriz.” Ulusal Bilimler Akademisi Tutanakları çalışması içerisinde yayımlandı.

Significance

Many traditional measures of creativity require time-intensive and subjective scoring procedures. Their scores are relative to the specific sample, which makes multicultural or international assessments difficult. Our results show that a shorter and simpler task with automatic and objective scoring may be at least as reliable at measuring verbal creativity. This finding enables assessments across larger and more diverse samples with less bias.

Abstract
Several theories posit that creative people are able to generate more divergent ideas. If this is correct, simply naming unrelated words and then measuring the semantic distance between them could serve as an objective measure of divergent thinking. To test this hypothesis, we asked 8,914 participants to name 10 words that are as different from each other as possible. A computational algorithm then estimated the average semantic distance between the words; related words (e.g., cat and dog) have shorter distances than unrelated ones (e.g., cat and thimble). We predicted that people producing greater semantic distances would also score higher on traditional creativity measures. In Study 1, we found moderate to strong correlations between semantic distance and two widely used creativity measures (the Alternative Uses Task and the Bridge-the-Associative-Gap Task). In Study 2, with participants from 98 countries, semantic distances varied only slightly by basic demographic variables. There was also a positive correlation between semantic distance and performance on a range of problems known to predict creativity. Overall, semantic distance correlated at least as strongly with established creativity measures as those measures did with each other. Naming unrelated words in what we call the Divergent Association Task can thus serve as a brief, reliable, and objective measure of divergent thinking.
