The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of identifying verbal creativity in the Brazilian context through a valid and reliable way. Two studies were conducted to achieve this aim. In the first one the sample was composed by 128 persons (32 F, 31 M) considered as creative and non-creative , and in the second the subjects were 53 high school students ( 35 F, 18 M). The instruments were the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (verbal form) and a questionnaire to collect data about recognized and not recognized creative production.
