Contemporary society places emphasis on flexibility, originality and new approaches, therefore it is a teacher's duty to cultivate independence and creative thinking in pupils at primary schools, and teachers should not be afraid to experiment or use new alternative approaches in teaching. There are many factors that influence creativity. Some are closely related to it, some have only a minor impact. The complexity of the structure of personality traits suggests that to determine a clear-cut relation is not possible. Does a different culture, living conditions and education influence creativity?Are there differences in nonverbal creative abilities between pupils in Turkey and pupils in the Czech Republic?Are there differences in creativity between the genders? Does creativity change with age? Describtion of article is aimed to creativity factors and specific influence of family, education and life. The article is focused on study of creativity in primary school children who grew up in various cultural and living conditions. We work with the results from the Torrance Figural Test of Creative Thinking, which was conducted at primary schools in the Czech Republic and the Republic of Turkey. We present a comparison of results of children from the two countries, which show differences in the degre of creativity in children in the Czech Republic and the Republic of Turkey.
The research sample consists of primary school pupils (random choice). The first group of the research sample consists of pupils from Turkey compared to other group consists of pupils from the Czech Republic. Each of these groups is comprised of 180 pupils. Each grade consists of the same number of pupils from the Czech Republic and from Turkey.
The research was carried out in Beypazari, Turkey and in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Description is aimed to creativity factors and specific influence of family, education and life.
