Matthews, Dona J.; Keating, Daniel P.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v15 n3 p319-43 Aug 1995
Studied diversity in high-level competence with 122 students identified as academically gifted, in grades 6-8. Results, which contradicted linear, single-scale models of intelligence, supported a three-factor solution: linguistic, logical-mathematical, and social. Specialization and generalization developed in tension with each other, yielding coherent patterns of competence and personality. (RJM)
