The Unusual Uses subtest of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking and the Rotter Social Reaction Inventory were administered to a total population of 168 graduate students at a predominantly Black university. Internality-externality scores were used to assign students to internal or external groups.

No significant differences were obtained between the internal and external groups for fluency
