VILLEMOR-AMARAL, Anna Elisa de et al. Pfister's colored pyramids test and creativity in children. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.3, pp. 114-124. ISSN 1516-3687.

The aim of this work was to verify evidence of validity for the use of Pfister's colored pyramids test with children, specifically with regard to creativity. Participated in this study 56 children of both genders, who attend the sixth grade of elementary school from public schools, located in an inner city of São Paulo State. The sample was divided into two extreme groups on the basis of the results of the infant figural creativity test. Later it was applied Pfister's Colored Pyramids Test. The most creative children showed that Pfister's test increase in stimulus syndrome. This result can help to identify children who have more energy, openness and interest to produce, which matches the literature. After all, creative people tend to have more need to express themselves.
