This study examined relations among perceived control and motivational styles and creativity in a sample of 132 students in 4th and 5th grade in Shiraz school. Specifically, the hypothesis of the study was that motivational self-regulation styles (i.e., intrinsic, identified, interjected, and extrinsic) are mediator variables between perceived control and creativity. Results of simultaneous multiple regression confirmed the research hypothesis. Specifically strategy beliefs about effort and others powerful positively predicted extrinsic regulation and capacity beliefs about effort and ability negatively predicted extrinsic regulation. Also, strategy beliefs about others powerful positively predicted introjected regulation. In addition strategy beliefs about effort, unknown negatively and others powerful and capacity beliefs about ability positively predicted identified regulation. Finally, strategy beliefs about ability positively and unknown strategy and capacity beliefs about chance negatively predicted intrinsic regulation. Results also showed that introjected regulation negatively and identified style positively predicted creativity. Overall, the model strongly predicted creativity and adherence to the motivational style and perceived were particularly important. At the end, the conclusion and implications of results were presented.
