The relationship between intelligence and creativity has been investigated for over half a century, dating back to the pioneering work of J.P. Guilford in the 1950s. Despite decades of research, however, researchers continue to debate the nature of the association between intelligence and creativity. Relevant research has become increasingly rich by considering specific facets of intelligence (e.g., Gf, Gr, and Gs) as well as specific conceptualizations of creativity (i.e., different aspects of creative potential and creative achievement). Moreover, recent advances in the measurement and modeling of these constructs have revealed new insights. These conceptual and methodological developments have paralleled new theories on the potential contribution of intelligence to creativity, such as the those emphasizing the role of cognitive control in creative thought.
With this Special Issue, we aim to highlight recent advances in the study of intelligence and creativity. Although the main focus of the special issue is intelligence, we also encourage submissions that explore other cognitive factors that may explain individual differences in creative thinking (e.g., implicit learning, executive functions, and experimental manipulations of cognitive control). The Special Issue will consider contributions that present empirical research and theoretical work that deepens our understanding of the relationship between intelligence and creativity.
