The aim of the current study is showing the personality predictors for the literary creativity in early adulthood. The material from 357 participants was analyzed. About 50% of them undertook the literary creativity, they write poems, stories, novels. Two personality questionnaires (ACL, KANHIII) were used to assess personality traits potentially associated with creative personality. Logistic regression was used to find the personality predictors. The dependent variable was binary coded: literary activity vs lack of literary activity; the independent variables were Potency, Assertiveness, Sociability, Individuality (ACL) and Conformity-Non conformity (KANH). Results showed that the significant predictors for the literary creativity in women are Non-conformity and Individuality, low level of Potency, low level of Assertiveness. The significant predictors for the literary creativity in men are high level of Conformity and high level of Assertiveness.
Celem niniejszej pracy jest odnalezienie osobowościowych predyktorów podejmowania twórczości literackiej w okresie wczesnej dorosłości. Do analizy włączono wyniki łącznie 357 osób. Około połowa z nich podejmuje aktywność literacką, czyli pisze wiersze, opowiadania, powieści. Do pomiaru cech osobowości potencjalnie związanych z osobowością twórczą wykorzystano dwa kwestionariusze osobowości (ACL, KANH-III). Aby odnaleźć osobowościowe predyktory podejmowania twórczości literackiej przeprowadzono regresję logistyczną. Zmienna zależna miała charakter binarny: aktywność literacka vs brak aktywności literackiej; zmiennymi niezależnymi były: Siła, Asertywność, Towarzyskość, Indywidualizm (ACL) oraz konformizm-nonkonformizm (KANH). Wyniki pokazały, że istotnymi predyktorami podejmowania twórczości literackiej przez kobiety jest wysoki poziom Nonkonformizmu oraz Indywidualizmu a także niski poziom Siły i Asertywności. Istotnymi predyktorami podejmowania twórczości literackiej przez mężczyzn jest wysoki poziom Konformizmu oraz wysoki poziom Asertywności.
