Self-descriptions and peer acceptance of creative students in high and low structured schools.

Abstract
The importance of personality characteristics in the study of creativity has been emphasized by many investigators (Golann,. 1963; Delias and Gaier, 1970). In this line of investigation there has been some inconsistency in the findings both in regard to the way in which creative persons describe themselves and the way in which they are judged by others . To account for the variance In results , a number of factors such as intelligence (Wallach and Kogan, 1965) , sex (Kurtzman, 1967) , and age (Parloff et. al • , 1968 ) have been suggested as influencing the personality correlates of creativity. The purpose of this study is to investigate an additional factor , organizational structuredness. This study will be concerned with contrasting the self-perception and peer acceptance of high and low creative students in a high structure and low structure Junior High School.
