Metacognition, Intelligence and Giftedness.
Shore, Bruce M.; Dover, Arlene C.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v31 n1 p37-39 Win 1987
The triarchic theory of intelligence (Sternberg et al.) includes three types of intellectual elements: metacomponents, performance components, and knowledge-acquisition components. Recent research on metacognition and giftedness and on availability and flexibility of cognitive style indicates that interaction among all these elements may provide a theory which better explain giftedness than do other intelligence theories.
