Peaks, Slumps, and Bumps: Individual Differences in the Development of Creativity in Children and Adolescents

Abstract

This article reviews developmental studies of creativity in children and adolescents with a focus on " peaks " and " slumps " that have often been described in the literature. The irregularity of the development of creativity is interpreted in light of conceptual and measurement issues and with regard to the interaction between individual-level resources, task-specific demands, and environmental influences, resulting in apparent individual differences in the development of creativity. The need for longitudinal designs, multidimensional and multi-domain assessment of creative potential limiting the contribution of task-specific factors is outlined and discussed as an important direction for developmental research on creativity.
