Abstract
This study aims to assess the creativity level of eight institutionalized young adults diagnosed with schizophrenia. The creativity was measured in terms of fluency, originality and flexibility using the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (TTCT) Verbal Form B developed by Paul Torrence. Findings revealed that the patient respondents’ creative potentials in terms of fluency and originality lay in a wide spectrum of weak (25 per cent in both facets), below average (25 per cent in both facets), strong (12.5 per cent in both facets) and very strong (37.5 per cent in fluency and 12.5 per cent in originality). Whereas, in flexibility the creativity level was within the spectrum of weak (25 per cent), below average (25 per cent), average (12.5 per cent) and above average (37.5 per cent). Hence, most of the patient respondents have very strong fluency and above-average flexibility.
