Abstract: Creative intelligence is recognised as an important element for economic survival in New World Order. Hence, the need to develop and nurture creative thinkers has become a national priority in many school systems. But schools give greater importance to academic achievement as they are judged by the academic performance of their students. This study is a preliminary attempt to investigate whether a relationship exists, if any between the creative personality of individuals and their achievement in a number of school subjects. "How do you think" Form E inventory by Davis was used for this purpose. The results indicate that creativity provides a small but positive value-added benefit to academic achievement. lmplications for teaching are discussed.
