Myth: The Gifted Constitutes 3-5% of the Population! Dear Mr. and Mrs. Copern We Regret to Inform You....
Renzulli, Joseph
Gifted Child Quarterly, v26 n1 p11-14 Win 1982
The myth that the gifted constitute 3 percent to 5 percent of the population is countered by a discussion of two types of giftedness: schoolhouse giftedness in which students excel in testtaking, and creative/productive giftedness in which students may not have high IQs. The 3 percent to 5 percent figure is seen to equate giftedness with IQ. (CL)
