Self-Ratings on Traits Associated with Creativity as Related to Performance on Two Tests of Creative Ability

Description: The first objective of this thesis was to determine the relationship between scores on the AC Test of Creative Ability and scores on the Cree Questionnaire. This task was undertaken as a response to the scarcity of comparative data among the few objective measures of creative ability which are currently available. The second objective was to construct a self-rating scale of personality traits shown by past research to be associated with creativity. The third objective was to investigate the relationship between scores on each of the two standardized measures of creative ability and scores on the self-rating scale of traits related to creativity.

He also was affected by his German birth, education, and revolutionary activity before his immigration to the United States. Indeed, it appears that much of his political thought was reaction to existing circumstances or events rather than pure contemplative thinking.

A Development of the Peano Postulates

Description: The purpose of this paper is to develop the Peano postulates from a weaker axiom system than the system used by John L. Kelley in General Topology. The axiom of regularity which states "If X is a non-empty set, then there is a member Y of X such that the intersection of X and Y is empty." is not assumed in this thesis. The axiom of amalgamation which states "If X is a set, then the union of the elements of X is a set." is also not assumed. All other axioms used by Kelley relevant to the Peano postulates are assumed. The word class is never used in the thesis, though the variables can be interpreted as classes.
