This study examines the perceptions of how creative various activities are believed to be. Forty-eight survey items were created modeling Kaufman and Beghetto’s four C model of creativity. Principal factor analysis was conducted to identify factors within each of the four groups. The data analysis indicates that the four C categories are not unifactor and that there may be a number of different influences that affect perceptions of creativity.
