We report an empirical study of the relationship between metaphoric thinking and creativity. Arguing that the two should be related, we employed the Barron Symbolic Equivalence Test to assess such metaphoric-creative thinking. The other measure employed in the study was an abbreviated version of the Alternate Uses Test, designed to assess ideational fluency. We found, as predicted, a positive relationship between metaphoric thinking and creativity (ideational fluency).
