Happiness, Creative Ideation, and Locus of Control

Abstract

This study explored the relationship between happiness, creative ideation, and locus of control. Participants included 171 university students. Three hypotheses were explored: First, happiness was predicted to be correlated to internal locus of control; second, creative ideation was predicted to be correlated to internal locus of control, and third, happiness was predicted to be correlated with creative ideation. Assessment tools included the Oxford Happiness Inventory, Runco Ideation Behavior Scales, and Rotter's Locus of Control. Results indicated a relationship between creative ideation and external locus of control. Data also indicated that there was a significant positive relationship between happiness and creative ideation. A significant difference on the happiness measure was found for those individuals with internal locus of control versus those with external locus of control.
