The relationship between creativity and originality has long been studied in personality and psychometric research, but recently ties to deviance and variability have also been described. This special issue, along with Longitudinal Studies of Creativity, focuses on creativity, deviance, and related traits and criteria such as variability, avante garde efforts, and contrarian strategies. They both offer varied and creative perspectives on the relationships that exist between creativity and deviance.
