Every person will come to experience what everyone perceives as the most challenging stage in life – adolescence. Most adolescents have different perspectives on life in this stage, and they experience many transitions. These transitions can naturally lead to anxiety. Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of adolescence. Excessive anxiety, however, frequently results in anxiety disorder. Individuals with this disorder often experience intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Using a descriptive-correlational research design, this study aimed to determine the relationship between variables such as age and anxiety to creative thinking among 100 adolescents in a selected school in Batanes. The Creativity Styles Questionnaire (CSQ) was used to assess creative thinking and the Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) for the respondents' anxiety. Results revealed the following: (1) There were no significant differences in anxiety between male and female adolescents; (2) A weak negative correlation between age and anxiety and; (3) A weak negative correlation between creative thinking and anxiety.
