dc.description.abstractGender differences in adolescents are a thoroughly researched topic of educational psychology. One of the gender differences between adolescents is creative thinking. Current findings have inconsistent results of which gender has superior ability in creative thinking. The current study focused on gifted and talented adolescents, to determine if there are differences between the genders’ creative thinking with in a specific population. The Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (TTCT, Torrance 1966), Figural Form A was used as the measure for creative thinking. Kaufman and Baer (2006) state that the TTCT is a useful tool in identifying highly creative individuals and gifted and talented individuals. Adolescent fluency, flexibility, and overall scores were used to determine if there were significant differences in creative ability between the genders. References Kaufman, J. C. & Baer, J. (2006).
