Creativity is a construct involving cognitive, personality and social aspects. The aim of this study was to construct the Escala de Perfil Criativo (EPC - Creative Profile Scale) and verify its validity. The validity based on its content was analyzed through blind judges, with an agreement rate of 80%, eliminating three items. Evidence of validity for the internal structure of the EPC was investigated through Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), which indicated seven factors. The scale was administered with 442 participants (78.3% females), with ages ranging from 18-75 years (M= 38.17; SD= 13.31). The reliability through the Cronbach's Alpha produced adequate values for each factor (α=.60 to .75). In conclusion, the validity evidence for the EPC suggests that it can be used to assess creativity.

Keywords : creativity; exploratory factor analysis; psychological evaluation; validity evidence.
