Abstract: There has been extensive research conducted exploring the connections between creativity and cognitive functioning. However, little research has examined various subtypes of creativity and their influences on specific cognitive tasks. The present study found that Self/Everyday had a negative impact on the controlled-processing task in a dual-task. This negative impact finding is not yet fully understood and more research is needed in elaborating the construct of Self/Everyday creativity. The current study also found evidence to support the proposition of various distinct types of creativity. There were also strong correlations between the subtypes of creativity and overall creativity.
