Purcell, Jeanne H.
Roeper Review, v18 n4 p248-52 Jun 1996
This paper considers the role of intelligence in lifetime achievement, noting the importance not only of general cognitive ability but also abilities not measured by standardized intelligence tests. It urges educators of the gifted to utilize their knowledge of intelligence and talent development to challenge the one-dimensional conception of human ability presented in "The Bell Curve." (DB)
