Respondents in the research comprises of 153 from six Malaysian universities. Multiple regression analysis reveals that a total variance in intelligences accounted for by the creativity factors is 13.5% (multiple R2 = 0.135, F (7, 145) =3.222, p = .003). This implies that creativity is important when considering the factors that influence the intelligence of students.
