Abstract

Tolerance for ambiguity correlated positively with creative motivation but was not related to need for achievement across samples of 106 high school students (14 – 19 years) and 135 university students (19 – 34 years). Tolerance for ambiguity and creative motivation related however differently to author’s measure of attitudes towards ambiguity tolerant – ambiguity intolerant behaviours. Participants filled in also Bulgarian adaptations of Torrance’ s Creative Motivation Scale; Norton’s Measure of Ambiguity Tolerance, and a Bulgarian scale for measuring need for achievement. Creative motivation items that differentiated individuals with high and low tolerance for ambiguity and high and low need for achievements were identified.
