"Among the general population of children, IQ and divergent thinking show only a low positive correlation (Kogan, 1983; Torrance 1976)"

"Comparisons of identical and fraternal twins reveal that genetic influences on divergent thinking are extremely weak (Pezzullo, Thorson, & Madaus (1972) American Educational Research Journal, 9, pp.539-546)"
