Have you ever heard that gifted students are more likely to be introverted? Did you wonder about the research behind these assertions? This session seeks to provide clarity about research on personality and giftedness. Myths are separated from knowledge to demonstrate the true diversity of the gifted population. Personality theories are explained and links made to practical applications for the classroom and lifelong development of individuals with intellectual and creative gifts.
