Cognitive Similarities between Academically and Socially Gifted Students.
Jones, Karen; Day, Jeanne D.
Roeper Review, v18 n4 p270-73 Jun 1996
This article compares research findings on heightened cognitive flexibility in academically gifted children and similar flexibility in social intelligence. It proposes that social-cognitive flexibility (the ability to adapt prior social knowledge to formulate solutions to new interpersonal situations) is an important component of social intelligence and speculates that a relationship exists between social problem solving and social giftedness.
