Title Investigating the Empirical Links between Creative and Critical Thinking
Creator Tsai, Kuan-Chen
Subject creative thinking, critical thinking, art and design, Macau, Chinese undergraduates
Description Although traditionally creative and critical thinking have been viewed as independent skills and dispositions, several commenters have argued that both modes of thoughts can be complementary. The purpose of the current study is to examine the relationship between creative and critical thinking among Chinese art and design undergraduates in Macau. A total of 140 college students from the art and design program in Macau were recruited for our study. Two major findings were recorded. Creative and critical thinking were positively correlated among our Chinese undergraduates and this correlation was strong. Furthermore, creative thinking was similar between students from Mainland China and from Macau; nevertheless, students from Mainland China had better critical thinking abilities than students from Macau. Although there were some salient limitations in the current study, it remains of importance and value. Future research in this line of study seems promising and deserves more attention.
