Self-assessment of creativity

Interesting post at James C. Kaufmann's blog on our self-awareness of our own creativity:
The American Idol Effect: Why We're Not Too Good at Judging Our Own Creativity

I would interpret 'metacreativity' as being creative about creativity, rather than being aware of the extent of your own creativity. However there are some useful links in here on experiments investigating how students rate their own creativity compared to the 'expert' opinion (in these cases, the teachers). I wonder if there has been any work on people being creative outside of the student/teacher domain?
