It will be the purpose of this study to demonstrate that the artistic individual is superior to the constricted individual in the ability to use preconscious processes in general. Specifically, the creative individual should be able to produce responses that are conceptually related to the subliminal stimulus under conditions in which the degree of external structure is relatively limited. With the appropriate increase in the amount of external structure, the creative individual should be able to produce isomorphic transformations of the subliminal stimulus. Cumulatively, the creative individual should produce more responses that are either conceptually related to or are isomorphic transformations of the subliminal stimulus under both the relatively unstructured condition and the more highly structured condition.
