THE GIFTED--DIGESTS OF MAJOR STUDIES.
PASSOW, A. HARRY; AND OTHERS
STUDIES CONCERNED WITH THE AREAS OF INTELLECTUAL, CREATIVE, AND SCIENTIFIC TALENT WERE PRESENTED. THEY WERE ORGANIZED UNDER (1) CHARACTERISTICS, (2) IDENTIFICATION, (3) ACHIEVEMENT MOTIVATION AND UNDERACHIEVEMENT AND, (4) EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS. TERMAN'S FOLLOWUP STUDY SHOWED THAT 90 PERCENT OF THE GIFTED MEN WERE IN THE PROFESSIONS, HIGHER BUSINESS OR SEMIPROFESSIONS. POLITICALLY, THE GROUP CONSIDERED THEMSELVES RIGHT OF CENTER ON THE CONSERVATIVE RADICAL SCALE. OTHER STUDIES OF CHARACTERISTICS INCLUDED HOLLINGWORTH'S AND STRONG'S. UNDER IDENTIFICATION CERTAIN TECHNIQUES AND PROCEDURES WERE USED TO ASSESS GIFTEDNESS IN AREAS OTHER THAN THE INTELLECTUALLY ABLE - SUCH AS ART, MUSIC, CREATIVE DANCE, CREATIVE WRITING, CREATIVE DRAMATICS, MECHANICAL TALENT, AND SOCIAL LEADERSHIP. STUDIES THAT EVALUATED THESE AREAS INCLUDED PEGNATO'S, JUSTMAN'S AND DAVIS'. EXPLORATION IN ACHIEVEMENT MOTIVATION AND UNDERACHIEVEMENT TENDED TO EXPLAIN THE GAP BETWEEN ABILITY AND ATTAINMENT. CONKLIN'S RESEARCH STATED THAT MANY OF THE UNDERACHIEVERS ARE INFLUENCED BY BAD RELATIONSHIPS WITH PARENTS AND PEERS. OTHER STUDIES INCLUDED BARRETT'S AND SHAW'S. UNDER EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, GALLAGHER'S STUDY CLAIMED THAT SOCIAL ADJUSTMENT DID NOT IMPEDE INTELLECTUAL ATTAINMENTS, IF IT HAD ANY INFLUENCE IT WAS NEGATIVE BECAUSE CHILDREN WILL PURPOSELY SCALE LOWER TO MAINTAIN THEIR SOCIAL STATUS. OTHER STUDIES WERE DONE BY GOLDBERG, MANN, AND ABRAMSON.
