Abstract
In this study, it was aimed to examine the relationships between creative imagination and intelligence
and to test the threshold hypothesis with younger
students. The sample included 492 students aged 5-7
years. The Anadolu Sak Intelligence Scale was used
to measure intelligence and Creative Imagination
Cards were used to measure creativity. Firstly the relationship between intelligence and creative imagination scores were analyzed, and then the correlation
values of the lower and upper groups were compared. To determine the threshold at other IQ levels,
different from 120 IQ, segmented regression analysis
were performed. A weak relationship was found between intelligence and creative imagination. The results showed that the threshold theory was not supported in younger children. Even, according to the
segmented regression analysis, inverse threshold effect was observed between creative imagination
scores and general intelligence scores around 120 IQ.
This is interpreted as the fact that in contrast to the
threshold hypothesis, intelligence level above the 120
IQ, provides an advantage in the creative imagination process for young age groups.

Key words: threshold hypothesis, intelligence, creativity, imagination
