These instruments provide verbal and non-verbal measures of creativity and creativity-related constructs. The Adjective Check List includes verbal measures of Creative Personality and Origence-Intellectence. The Barron-Welsh Art Scale provides two non-verbal scale scorings - each a valid measure of creativity.

Creativity is generally thought of as the ability to use the imagination to create original ideas. Those who excel or have great interest in art are considered to have high levels of creativity. However, not all creative people are artists and not all artists are creative. Creativity is also an indicator of openness to experience and ability to generate new ideas, characteristics that can be found in people of various occupations.
