This diploma thesis investigates the correlations between creativity, alcohol consumption, sensation seeking and personality. The sample is composed of 160 non-clinical students and volunteers, who were not addicted to alcohol. The data were collected in individual test sessions, each taking about one and a half hour. Creativity was measured by four different types of creativity tests, sensation seeking by means of the Sensation Seeking Skala V. Personality characteristics were assessed via Eysencks Personality Questionnaire and alcohol consumption by means of the ?Lübecker Alcohol Screening Test (LAST)?. The main aims of this study were to analyse the correlations between creativity and alcohol consumption, as well as the correlations between creativity and different facets of sensation seeking. In addition, correlations between age and sensation seeking, alcohol consumption, sensation seeking and personality were investigated. The main hypothesis of this study which dealt with the potential relationship between alcohol consumption and creativity could not be confirmed in this study. Concerning the correlations between the personality dimensions psychoticism, extraversion, neuroticism and alcohol consumption, positive correlations could be shown. In addition, facets of sensation seeking, namely boredom susceptibility and disinhibition, also show a positive relation with alcohol consumption. In addition, sensation seeking was negatively associated with age. Finally, we observed positive correlations of creativity and extraversion and psychoticism as well as all four sensation seeking scales and extraversion.
