Abstract: Using 50 psychology undergraduates, an attempt was made to find positive correlations between, on the one hand, transliminality (psychological material crossing thresholds into or out of consciousness), and on the other hand, (item-corrected) creative personality, and figure-complexity preference (as given by the Revised Barron-Welsh Art Scale: a measure of creativity). Only the correlation between transliminality and creative personality was significant. There was also a significant and high test-retest reliability coefficient for the Transliminality Scale, as well as a significant positive correlation between creative personality and paranormal belief.
