Abstract/Description

There is a substantial body of research that investigates creativity and religiosity as separate phenomena. Creativity tends to fall in the domain of cognitive and personality psychology, while religiosity is typically a variable of interest in social psychology. While some prior research has suggested a negative relationship between religiosity and creativity (Nguyen, 2012), more research is necessary to fully understand the association between these variables. The current study will conceptually replicate and expand upon recent research showing that some dimensions of religiosity are predictive of performance on creative generations tasks (Nguyen, 2012). This study will expand on that research by measuring different aspects of religiosity (including fundamentalism) and having participants complete different creative generation tasks than have been used previously.
