In this study, we describe the results of two preregistered replication attempts of one experiment by Förster and Denzler (2012). In both experiments, participants first processed letters either globally or locally, then were tested for creativity using a word categorization task. Bayes factor hypothesis tests were conducted for both experiments: Experiment 1 (N=100) yielded an indecisive Bayes factor of 1.38, indicating that the in-lab data are 1.38 times more likely to have occurred under the null hypothesis than under the alternative. Experiment 2 (N=908) yielded a Bayes factor of 10.84, indicating strong support for the null hypothesis that global priming does not affect participant creativity.
