The purpose of this study is to determine whether Turkish student teachers have implicit opinions regarding creativity. For this purpose, whether the student teachers’ genders, backgrounds, and socioeconomic levels created significant differences on the formation of their implicit opinions regarding creativity was examined. First, the What Do You Think of Creativity Scale was translated into the Turkish language. Next, the validity and reliability of the scale were analyzed. The scale was subsequently applied to 1,274 student teachers. At the end of the study, the scale's health and youth dimensions showed that male student teachers are more strict-minded than female student teachers. Moreover, the study found that student teachers who grew up in rural areas were more strict-minded in the scale's birth order dimension. In addition, regarding the scale's race and intelligence dimensions, student teachers associated with high socioeconomic levels were more strict-minded than the student teachers associated with low and middle socioeconomic levels.
