GONCALVES, Maria Clara Miceli; SCHELINI, Patrícia Waltz  e  DEFFENDI, Luma Tizzioto. The relation between extraversion and creativity: a study with brazilian students. Bol. psicol [online]. 2016, vol.66, n.145, pp. 171-186. ISSN 0006-5943.

Personality is considered one of the most important elements in creative product development. Specifically in this paper, the relationship between the "extraversion" personality trait and the creative processes was investigated among a population of 30 college students of both genders. The Extraversion Factorial Scale was applied to evaluate the extraversion, then the Torrance tests of creative thinking were applied, in order to evaluate the creativity. Results showed significant correlations between creativity and factors of "communication" and "conceit". However, the factor "assertiveness" did not present correlations with Creative Indexes. Thus, the results show that there is, in general, a relationship between extraversion and creativity, so that in the assessed dimensions, more extroverted individuals tend to be more creative than introverted ones
