- To compete in the industrial revolution 4.0 era, a country must have qualified human resources. While the intelligence quotient (IQ) has been commonly used as a benchmark for the quality of human resources, according to Peter Drucker (2005), the quality of human resources in a country cannot only be measured by IQ alone as the key to a country’s success lies in innovation, which is the result of creativity. This study used quantitative analysis to examine the relationship between intellectual intelligence and creativity (fluency, flexibility, elaboration, and originality) in elementary school students. A random sampling technique was employed to select 80 study participants (N = 80) aged from 10 to 11 years old from four different sub-districts. Colored progressive matrices (CPMs) and a figural creativity test (TKF) were then employed to determine the students’ intellectual and creativity levels, after which Statistical Product and Service Solutions was used to analyze the test results and identify the relationship between intellectual intelligence and creativity. The test results corroborated the hypothesis that intellectual ability is related to the ability to think creatively as was indicated by the obtained significance value of 0.04 < 0.05. It was found that elaboration and originality were connected with a high average intellectual intelligence, which in this study was only 6.25% of the sample. Therefore, it is recommended that schools develop teaching materials that stimulate elaboration and originality in students to ensure the development of a high quality generation.
