The purpose of this study was to investigate the contributions of creative thinking ability and cognitive type to research and development (R&D) performance. One hundred and six researchers in an R&D institute of a petroleum company in Taiwan were given the Circle Test of the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking and Myers‐Briggs Type Indicator. Their R&D performance was measured in terms of assigned technical reports, completed service projects, published papers, and a supervisor’s performance rating. Results showed that there was a low but positive correlation between creativity and the first‐authored paper and the technical report. The cognitive type was on the other hand associated with the performance rating and the first‐authored service project assignment. Implications for R&D management are discussed.
