Reply to: Are There More Gifted People than Would Be Expected on a Normal Distribution?
Gallagher, James J.
Journal of Advanced Academics, v25 n1 p4-6 Feb 2014
The author responds to the article by Warne, Godwin, and Smith (2013) on the question of whether there are more gifted people than would be expected in a Gaussian normal distribution. He asserts that the answer to this question is yes, based on (a) data that he and his colleagues have collected, (b) data that are already available and quoted by the authors themselves, and (c) the nature of the measurements designed to test intelligence.
