Zusammenfassung: 
Previous research demonstrated that affiliation primes facilitate intuitive thought (Kuhl & Kazan, 2008). We investigated whether trait tendencies toward affiliation also predict intuitive thought. Thirty-nine students filled in the operant motive test for the assessment of social motives, a variant of the Thematic Apperception Test, and corresponding self-report scales. Then, 9 months later, participants engaged in a remote associates task where they intuitively indicated whether three words are semantically related. As expected, the implicit affiliation motive significantly predicted the accuracy of identifying related word triads, though neither implicit power and achievement motives, nor explicit motives did so.
