The Role of Creativity in the Structure of the Human Personality
Creativity marks the entire personality and psychic activity of the individual, and at the same
time, integrates organically into the personality system. Using the analysis of creative individuals
(science, technology, art) were highlighted as traits of creative personality: fluidity, flexibility, ability
to elaborate, sensitivity to problems, redefinition, originality (J. Guilford), independent thinking, strong
consciousness, preference for complex phenomena (Barron), tolerance for ambiguous situations,
diverse and complex interests, specific cognitive style (I. Taylor), intrinsic motivation, strong
emotionality, nonconformism, increased need for independence, high self-driving. Seen through the
prism of personality, creativity acquires the meaning of creative potential of the sum of qualities or
psychological factors of future creative performances. Through education, the creative potential can
become in time, a personality trait that will produce the new, original, socio-cultural values.
