Summary/Abstract: This study investigated the relationship between student alienation, abilities and creativity predisposition. The adolescents completed the Kmiecik-Baran Scale of Alienation and the Urban-Jellen Creativity Thinking Test (TCT), and answered questions about personal characteristics. The analysis was based on results from a total of 331 undergraduate students, age 16–20. The outcome indicated that the level of alienation (mostly loneliness and anomie) is the highest among artistically gifted adolescents. In light of the obtained data, no correlation between the sense of alienation and creative predisposition was found. However, the relationship between student alienation and creativity predisposition was positive but very weak and only among girls.
