Feldhusen, John F.
Gifted Education International, v10 n1 p10-15 1994
This paper offers a model of the nature and development of talents, which views genetic factors as determining potential strengths and setting limits and views abilities, aptitudes, and intelligences emerging as a result of experiences, motivations, and styles. Specific talents are characterized by precocity, creative insight, a functional knowledge base, and metacognitive creativity. (Author/DB)
