BARTHOLOMEU, Daniel et al. Associations between moral emotions and creativity in college students. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2014, n.38, pp.73-85. ISSN 1414-6975.

Moral emotions help people to differentiate moral characteristics, motivating the behavior and reveal the moral values and concern with oneself and with others. The aim of this study was to analyse relationships between moral emotions and creativity in college. The participants were 88 students attending higher education at a private university in the state of São Paulo, of both sexes and aged between 18 and 54 years. Were administered to EEM (Moral Emotions Scale) and the Test Creation Metaphors. The analysis revealed no significant differences between these measures between sexes or ages, for both the EEM and for the Test Creation Metaphors, suggesting that regardless of age or sex, people tend to express emotions and evaluated produce the same metaphors manner. It was identified a significant and negative correlation between the variable and the factor Category Metaphorical Guilt. It is necessary to emphasize that the specific emotions are assessed, which probably resulted in differences with the results obtained.
