Abstract: This study investigates how three variables – creativity mindset, fear of failure (FOF), and feedback of success or failure – may influence creativity performance. 170 participants were randomly assigned to either the success or failure feedback condition, and underwent the Alternative Uses Task (AUT), which measures divergent thinking. Participants’ mindset about their creative abilities and their level of FOF were also measured. Analyses revealed that neither creativity mindset, FOF, nor feedback on its own, had an effect on creativity performance. However, the interaction effect between creativity mindset and FOF was significant. Follow up analyses showed that participants with a growth mindset of creativity had higher scores in the Elaboration component of AUT, than those with a fixed mindset of creativity, but only when participants had low FOF. Follow-up analyses also revealed that participants with high FOF had higher Elaboration scores than those with low FOF, but only when participants had a fixed mindset of creativity. Lastly, follow-up analyses revealed that participants with a growth mindset of creativity and high FOF had higher Elaboration scores than participants with a fixed mindset of creativity and low FOF. Implications of the findings and limitations of the study are also discussed.
