Summary/Abstract: Bulgarian adaptation of Torrance’s creative motivation scale was administered to five samples of high school students (14 – 19 years; n = 106 and 407), university students (17 – 43 years; n = 208 and 130) and adults (17 – 69 years; n = 375). The internal consistency for the retained 18 items (Cronbach’s alpha) ranged 0,78 to 0,84 across samples. Test-retest reliability was 0,77 for a 1,5-month interval (n = 253) and 0,67 for a 3-month interval (n = 112). Creative motivation correlated positively with tolerance for ambiguity and orientation towards achieving high standards in one’s activity (Pearson’s r from 0,31 to 0,39) among high school students (n = 106) and university students (n = 130). Creative motivation’s items were identified that differentiated individuals with high and low tolerance for ambiguity and those with high and low need for achievement. Creative motivation was also related to adolescents’ self-concept (n = 219). Highly motivated individuals showed greater self-esteem (r = 0, 38) as well as greater discrepancy between their Real and Ideal Selves (r = 0,22).
