ملخص: هدفت الدراسة إلى الكشف عن القدرة التنبؤية لليقظة العقلية بفاعلية الذات الإبداعية لدى عينة تكونت من (591) طالبًا وطالبةً من المرحلة الثانوية في محافظة إربد، تم اختيارها بالطريقة المتيسرة خلال الفصل الأول من العام الدراسي 2019/2018، ولتحقيق أهداف الدراسة، استخدم مقياس فاعلية الذات الإبداعية، ومقياس الوجوه الخمسة لليقظة العقلية. وأظهرت النتائج وجود مستوى مرتفع من فاعلية الذات الإبداعية ككل ومجاليها لدى طلبة المرحلة الثانوية، كما كشفت النتائج أن المتوسطات الحسابية للذكور على الدرجة الكلية لفاعلية الذات الإبداعية ومجاليها كانت أعلى منها للإناث. كما أظهرت النتائج وجود مستوى متوسط لليقظة العقلية ككل ومجالاتها، عدا مجال المراقبة الذي جاء بمستوى مرتفعٍ. وكشفت النتائج أن المتوسطات الحسابية للذكور على مقياس اليقظة العقلية ككل ومجالاته كانت أعلى منها للإناث، وأن المتوسطات الحسابية للطلبة ذوي التخصصات المهنية على مقياس اليقظة العقلية ككل ومجالاته كانت أعلى منها للتخصصات الأخرى. وأخيرًا، أظهرت النتائج أن الدرجة الكلية لليقظة العقلية فسرت ما نسبته 19.9% من التباين في فاعلية الذات الإبداعية، في حين أن مجالات اليقظة العقلية فسرت ما نسبته 39.5% من هذا التباين.

Abstract: This study aimed to reveal the predictive ability of mindfulness of the creative self-efficacy among a sample of (591) male and female students from the secondary stage in Irbid governorate, chosen using the available sampling method during the first semester of the academic year 2018/2019. To achieve the goals of the study, the creative self-efficacy and the five faces of mindfulness scales were used. The results showed that the levels of high-school students' creative self-efficacy total score and its sub-domains were high. The results also revealed that the means of males on creative self-efficacy total score and its sub-domains were higher than those of females.The results also showed that the level of mindfulness total score and its sub-domains was moderate, except for the domain of observing which was high. The results also revealed that the means of males on mindfulness total score and sub-domains were higher than for females, and that the means of the students in the professional stream on mindfulness total score and subdomains were higher than those for other streams. Finally, the results showed that the mindfulness total score explained 19.9% of the variance in the creative self-efficacy, while the subdomains of mindfulness explained 39% of this variance.
