The Self Experience of the Gifted Person: Theory and Definitions.
Greenspon, Thomas S.
Roeper Review, v22 n3 p176-81 Apr 2000
This article, anchored in current self psychology theory, defines the self experience as the person's subjective experience of organization and meaning. Traits of giftedness, and the reactions of others to these, are seen to contribute to the gifted self experience. Social and emotional problems of giftedness are thought to be based on a compromised sense of cohesion and unity of the self experience. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
