The study examined relationships between participation in leisure activities and creative potential, creative achievement, ideational behavior, and participants’ self-assessment. Men and women (N = 659) living in Córdoba, Argentina, participated in the research. The sample represented socio-demographic diversity, including age, level of schooling, and occupation. Interesting correlations between leisure activities and the different assessments of creativity were observed. Involvement in leisure activities and self-assessment of creative potential seemed to be accurate indicators of creativity in everyday contexts. Interesting lines of intervention and future investigation emerged. Implications are presented, along with limitations to the research.
