Abstract

One of the most popular theory concerned about the relationship between intelligence and creativity is threshold theory. However, there is no clear reason why the threshold should be fixed at an IQ of 120. The main purpose of this study was to confirm the threshold theory within the samples of 222 senior high school student. Segmented regression analysis was performed to decide the optimal breakpoint of the threshold. For the criterion of potential creativity, a breakpoint was detected at an IQ of 106 points. When the threshold of IQ = 106 was tested, correlations between intelligence and creative abilities below the threshold are positive and significant (r=0,24; p<0,05), whereas above the threshold they are not significant (r=0,15; p>0,05). These results confirmed the threshold theory. Once the intelligence threshold is met, other factors become more predictive for creativity.
