The present research examined creative drawing processes in teams of gifted adolescents with different educational specializations, including teams with homogeneous (the same specialization) and heterogeneous (mixed specialization) composition. Based on the converging evidence from protocol and Linkography analyses, we identified the differences in frequency and dynamic distribution of distinct creative processes between the different teams specializing in visual art, natural science, humanities, as well as mixed specialization teams. Visualization processes played a crucial role for visual art, science, mixed, but not for humanities teams. All teams except humanities had visual planning earlier in the creative process. Visual artists’ visualization processes developed prominently and continuously throughout all stages of creative production with the main focus on visual aesthetics while for scientists, they developed more discreetly, and in conjunction with understanding of function. Mixed and visual art teams shared many similarities, and they had the highest level of integration between the ideas expressed during their creative processes. Mixed team had higher frequency of organizational processes, indicating coordination and organization challenges due to their diversity. The results of this research show the importance of considering differences in visualization profiles while composing teams of different specializations.
