The aim of the research was to study the creativity of G&T children. It has been emphasised in different theories that creativity is an essential factor in the configuration and measurement of G&T students’ cognitive profile. Therefore, it is important to understand how giftedness and creativity can be identified and assessed. The assessment of creativity in G&T children mainly focuses on using TTCT to understand the complex creativity of those children. This article presents an empirical study carried out in Murcia (Spain) orientated towards comparing creativity between G&T and non-gifted or non-talented. The results indicated that gifted and creative talented children scored higher than non-G&T children. Gifted children showed greater flexibility, which means that they have a high ability to manage and process different types of information. It was also found that creatively talented children showed higher scores in originality, mental flexibility and fluency.
