Komplex problemlösning, kreativitet och emotionell intelligens: tre framgångsfaktorer för2000-talets arbetsplats (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present study was to examine complex problem solving (CPS),emotional intelligence (EI) and creativity to further the knowledge aboutcompetencies that are important for the 21st century workplace. We hypothesizedthat CPS would be related to both creativity and EI. Furthermore, we hypothesizedthat age would show a negative relationship to CPS. 39 participants recruitedmostly from convenience sampling completed the CPS test, the creativity test andthe EI test at locations in Örebro and Stockholm. The results were analyzed withlinear and multiple regressions and showed that CPS significantly predictedcreativity and that CPS significantly predicted EI, with those two having a negativerelationship. A regression revealed that age significantly predicted CPS, with thosetwo having a negative relationship. It was theorized that working memory andintelligence were important factors explaining the regression of CPS and creativity.The unexpected negative relationship between CPS and EI was theoreticallyinvestigated, indicating that personality factors could have affected the results.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka komplex problemlösning (CPS),emotionell intelligens (EI) och kreativitet för att främja kunskapen om kompetensersom är viktiga för 2000-talets arbetsplats. Vår hypotes var att CPS skulle vararelaterat till både kreativitet och till EI. Dessutom var en hypotes att ålder skulleha en negativ relation till CPS. 39 deltagare rekryterade främst frånbekvämlighetsurval genomförde CPS-testet, kreativitets testet och EI-testet iÖrebro och i Stockholm. Resultaten analyserades med linjära och multiplaregressioner och visade att CPS signifikant predicerade kreativitet och att CPSsignifikant predicerade EI, med ett negativt förhållande. En regression visade attålder signifikant predicerade CPS, med ett negativt förhållande. Teoretiskaförklaringar gavs att arbetsminne och intelligens var viktiga faktorer somförklarade regressionen av CPS och kreativitet. Det oväntade negativa sambandetmellan CPS och EI undersöktes teoretiskt vilket antydde att personlighetsfaktorerkan ha påverkat resultaten.
