dc.description.abstractThe present series of studies examine links between creativity and intelligence with dating and sexual behavior from an evolutionary perspective to better understand the function of human creativity. In three studies, participants (N = 65, 225, 142) completed intelligence tests, male and female mate value surveys, and written creativity tasks. Analysis of the data suggests that creativity does not correlate with sexual partner number but it does correlate with self-assessed dating success and high partner quality, particularly in an older sample.en_US
