The interrelation of creativity and inspection time was tested with 97 subjects. Based on former results it was presumed that psychometric creativity - similar to psychometric intelligence - is related to inspection time. According to former data, mental abilities display low or medium negative correlation with information processing on large samples. I.e., in tests, high and low achievement is accompanied by fast and slow reaction time, respectively, in the case of 10-20% of subjects. The author obtained a correlation that is of the same direction but weaker than those published in the literature. Comparing high and low creativity test achievements and the quality of information processing he found that both show individual differences, which, however, do not coincide. Subjects requiring twice-three times longer inspection time or twice-three times more of presentations include persons of high, medium and low creativity alike.
