In this paper we analyse a few aspects concerning the creative potential of pupils and undergraduates through the prism of concrete research consisting of a test made up of five trials (four of verbal creativity and one of figural creativity). The answers to these quizzes allowed us to assess three intellectual factors of the creative potential, i.e. fluidity, flexibility, and originality (individually, group, item, and trial). The conclusions led us to the general idea of the need for a creative scientific climate in educational environments (family, school, work place, etc.).
