Results: The findings of this study showed significant relationship between reasoning and creativity (r=0.149) and could predict 2.43 of its variance. There was a positive relation between flexibility and reasoning (r=0.198) and indirect memory digits (r=0.156).
Conclusion: This study showed that brain executive functions, specifically reasoning can predict creativity. This would provide implications for fostering students’ capabilities and the how of thises relations.
