Creativity and Giftedness--A Comparative Perspective.
Paulsen, Willem J.
This paper reviews literature-based giftedness definitions which have evolved as different manifestations of giftedness have been recognized. Various fields of giftedness are outlined, including mental, creative, specific academic, psychosocial (leadership), performing arts, kinesthetic (athletic), manipulative skills, and mechanical/technical/industrial. An emerging view of creativity is presented, and the relationship between intelligence and creativity is analyzed. The point is stressed that the gifted child should always be seen in terms of his/her totality (physical, social, emotional, mental) and not in terms of giftedness only. (JDD)
