An assignment has become a familiar thing for students, and it is often given with deadline. For some students, the deadline is perceived as pressure. However, some other students claim that the deadline existence pushes them to come up with more ideas. According to Guilford's theory, these more ideas are an example of fluency in the creativity components. This study aims to examine whether time pressure increases fluency component of creativity. The creativity was measured using Guilford’s Alternative Uses Test. Data were obtained using probability sampling method from 34 first-year students of Padjadjaran University, majoring in psychology. Participants were randomly assigned to two groups, control and experimental. Using independent sample t-test with a confidence interval of 90%, the result showed that time pressure increased fluency component of creativity (t = 1.616, p <0.1).
