Introduction: Today, successful organizations are the ones that constantly operationalize new ideas. The present study aimed to investigate the effective personal characteristics in creating and developing creativity among the students of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. To do this, three mediating factors of positive mood, self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation were used to help evaluate the effect of personal characteristics on these students’ creativity. Methods: In this descriptive-correlational study, the data were collected through a combined questionnaire which was completed by a number of 214 students. The participants of the study were selected through a multi-stage method (cluster, stratified and random sampling) from among a number of 481 volunteers. The data were analyzed by Path analysis using LISER 8. 50. Results:The results showed that the three factors of personal characteristics (self-directedness, risk taking, and retroactivity) had a significantly indirect effect on students` creativity that is, they were found to affect creativity through the three mediatory factors of positive mood, intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy. The values obtained from the comparative fit index, goodness of fit index, adjusted goodness of fit index, and root mean squared error of approximation were 1. 00, 1. 00, 0. 97, and 0. 038, respectively.
