Hannah Bauss Psy 329 6/3/09 Research Results First, we had to organize the data into their groupings and average the scores given to each drawing by the three raters. Each rater counted the number of objects in each picture and then gave the drawing an overall rating on a scale of one to ten. These numbers were then averaged for each picture. The raters then gave the pictures scores of zero or one for creativity, global or local, and relaxed or not. A score of one was given if a drawing was creative, global, or relaxed. If the picture was seen as not creative, local, or not relaxed it received a zero for that category. We did not have to omit any of our data. The raters predicted that the relaxed group (m=.50, sd=.511) was more creative than the non-relaxed group (m=.30, sd=.470).

Unformatted text preview: Those who were relaxed also were found to create more global pictures (m=.46, sd=.509) than local ones (m=.17, sd=.388). It was also discovered that there was a slightly greater amount of detail in drawings from relaxed participants (m=5.06, sd=1.6) compared to drawings from non-relaxed participants (m=4.7, sd=1.8). Finally, it was found that there were slightly more objects found in pictures from the non relaxed group (m=12.4, sd=5.4) than the relaxed one (m=12.2, sd=3.2). The only statistically significant result was that for the raters being able to determine whether a participant was relaxed and creating a more global image as opposed to a more local one [t(45)= -1.36, p=.037]....
