Abstract

Creativity is on top most agenda of the world today given its implication to literally every field of life. Demographic characteristics have been frequently and predictably related to creative thinking. The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of undergraduate university students about their creative thinking abilities and to assess the effect of some selected demographical variables on their perceived creative thinking abilities. A survey was administered to 200 undergraduate students who have been sampled purposively. The statistical analysis revealed that parental education contributes the highest, whereas the academic area of study has the lowest contribution to creative thinking. The gender and residential area also have a significant effect on perceived creative thinking abilities. Therefore it can be concluded that demographic variables of gender, parents’ education, residential location and academic area of study are good predictors of creative thinking.
