AUTHOR : 김경은

INFORMATION : page. 1~17 / 2014 Vol.21 No.1


The aims of this study were to investigate how personality and playfulness related to creativity and to examine the effects of big 5 personality traits and playfulness on creativity on the part of pre-service kindergarten teachers. The participants comprised 252 pre-service kindergarten teachers enrolled in Department of Early Childhood Education or Child Studies from around the greater metropolitan areas of Seoul and Pusan, Korea. The data thus collected were analyzed by means of Pearson's correlation, and multiple regression analysis, using PSAW 18.0. The results revealed that big 5 personality traits were significantly related to playfulness and creativity. Additionally, playfulness was related positively to creativity. Multiple regression analysis indicated that up to 49.1% of variance of creativity could be accounted for by the big 5 personality traits (Openness to Experience, Conscientiousness, and Agreeableness) and playfulness. This study suggested that these big 5 personality models and playfulness could account for much of the variance in creativity and could therefore be used for pre-service kindergarten teachers training and development
