Adding Personality to Gifted Identification: Relationships among Traditional and Personality-Based Constructs
Carman, Carol A.
Journal of Advanced Academics, v22 n3 p412-446 Spr 2011
One of the underutilized tools in gifted identification is personality-based measures. A multiple confirmatory factor analysis was utilized to examine the relationships between traditional identification methods and personality-based measures. The pattern of correlations indicated this model could be measuring two constructs, one related to traditional intelligence-related aspects of giftedness and the other related to personality-related aspects. Multiple discriminant analyses were then conducted to determine if the identification method would discriminate between gifted and nongifted adults. Traditional identification methods and the OEQII were able to discriminate between gifted and nongifted but the Sensory Profile was not. (Contains 8 tables and 3 figures.)
