Mazzoli Smith, L.; Campbell, R. J. – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
This commentary addresses the analysis in Persson's (2012a) article. According to the authors, the agenda for change amongst scholars has four productive proposals.

Campbell, R. J.; Smith, L. Mazzoli – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
Campbell and Mazzoli Smith state that it is rare to find two articles, linked, as they are by concerns with both giftedness and the limits of objectivity, so different in style, in degree of cognitive challenge, and in extent of tentativeness, as those by Professor Freeman and Professor Persson in the two issues of "Gifted and Talented…

Martin, Lee; Dy, Angela Martinez – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
The presence or absence of qualities such as integrity and compassion are vital to the human condition.

Harris, Carole Ruth – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
This article addresses giftedness in the context of individual response that emerges as a quality of gifted as differentiated from that which is measurable.

Gallagher, James – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
In this commentary, James Gallagher states that there is a point where Joan Freeman's discussion in "A Quality of Giftedness" departs from established knowledge regarding gifted students.

Sisk, Dorothy A. – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
Some children and adults have a creative life spark, and in a spontaneous environment, they are able to demonstrate a spirit of "free play" in generating ideas, planning, and implementing projects, or just thoroughly entertaining others with their wry humor and curiosity.

Miller, Rachelle; Gentry, Marcia – Gifted and Talented International, 2012
Do some individuals with gifts and talents hold special qualities that make them different from other people?
