This article presents the process of constructing and validating the Polish version of the Remote Associates Test (RAT-PL). The test consists of 17 items of three words that are remotely associated with the solution (fourth word). This test has high reliability and moderate difficulty. As expected, the results of RAT-PL were positively associated with intelligence, questionnaire measures of intuitive processing as well as with openness to ideas and values. However, when controlling for intelligence and intuition in the regression analysis, relationships with openness were not statistically significant. The RAT-PL can be a valuable tool for Polish researchers who study intuition, insight and creativity.
