Nonentrenchment in the Assessment of Intellectual Giftedness.
Sternberg, Robert J.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v26 n2 p63-67 Spr 1982
The author argues for an expanded notion of intellectual giftedness which would take into account a person's ability to deal with nonentrenched (unusual or strange) tasks and concepts. This conception of intelligence is seen to be closer to that of creativity. Measurement problems are cited. (CL)
