Introduction: Creativity as a prominent human characteristic and its relationship with different variables reflected in various studies, but not so much with BEF. Aim: The purpose of this study was to check the relation between creativity and brain executive functions in a sample of Saghez's guidance school students, based on contradicting results. Method: 318 guidance school students completed four questionnaires: Abedi's creativity test, Wechsler's intelligent subscale tests of reasoning and memory digit, and Andre Rey's organization test. Simple correlation and multiple regression tests were used to analyze the data. Results: The findings of this study showed significant relationship between reasoning and creativity (r=0.149) and could predict 2.43 of its variance. There was a positive relation between flexibility and reasoning (r=0.198) and indirect memory digits (r=0.156). Conclusion: This study showed that brain executive functions, specifically reasoning can predict creativity. This would provide implications for fostering students' capabilities and the how of thises relations.
