Abstract
The current study aimed to provide initial quantitative data on the relationship between college students' style of language usage and their creativity. Correlation coefficients between Alternative Use Test creativity scores and Korean Linguistic Inquiry and Word Counts were calculated from 157 college students' stream of consciousness writings. The results showed that people who scored as more creative also used more content words to express their thoughts, and they did so in a more straightforward manner. The results also showed that these people used a greater number of concepts that were more abstract, had a more individualistic perspective, and thought in less conventional ways. This study provides reference data for future studies on the relationship between creativity and language usage.
