The Relationship between Scores on the ICMIC and Selected Talent Domains: An Investigation with Gifted Adolescents

Gifted Child Quarterly, v48 n2 p133 Spr 2004
This investigation compared fantasy-proneness levels and IQ scores in gifted adolescents with primary talent areas in 1 of 4 domains: mathematics, computer science, creative writing, and chemistry. The Inventory of Childhood Memories and Imaginings: Children's Form (ICMIC; Myers, 1983) was used to assess fantasy-proneness. IQ scores were generated through the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT; Kaufman & Kaufman, 1990). The mean ICMIC score of the creative writing group was found to be statistically significantly higher than that of any of the other 3 groups. Across all groups, those ranking highest in fantasy-prone characteristics also scored highest in measured IQ.
