Won Kyung Kim,Nam Hee Woo
Path analysis was used to determine variables influencing the creativity of elementary school children. Participants were 213 dyads of 6th-grade children and their parents. The children and their parents responded to questionnaires on children`s temperament, depression, self-esteem, self-efficacy, and problem-solving style. Children completed the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking. Child`s problem-solving style and self-efficacy directly affected child`s creativity. Child`s temperament, depression, self-esteem, self-efficacy, and problem-solving indirectly affected creativity such that child`s temperament affected depression, which affected child`s self-esteem. Then, child`s self-esteem affected child`s problem-solving which, in turn, affected child`s self-efficacy that directly predicted child`s creativity. Both problem-solving and self-efficacy were mediators of child`s creativity.
