The argument on whether giftedness is innate or learned continues to dominate various spheres of learning. According to Csikszentmihalyi (2014), giftedness is a natural trait that is inherited but others argue that it is an acquired trait that comes through learning. Whether giftedness is inherited or learned still remains a contentious issue. Giftedness refers to the natural ability to do something extremely well with less effort. A gifted child has extraordinary ability to perform specific activity or have a high degree of mental ability. The IQ test is the common measurement for giftedness (Csikszentmihalyi, 2014). A part from the standard IQ test, there are intelligence and creativity tests that can be used in the determination of giftedness.
Scholars have not come up with a concrete conclusion on whether giftedness is inherited or learned. It has commonly been believed for a long time that there are a small population of humans that are born with a genetic potential o excel in certain filed such as science and art. It is important to identify giftedness early enough during childhood so that it can be nurtured with the aim of making individuals exploit their full potential.
Individuals often fail to reach their full potential due to the failure to discover what they are truly good at during childhood. It is important to establish the required platform and environment to enable children discover their talent. Eliminating the barriers to talent discovery can help children live a fulfilling life by exploiting their talent (Csikszentmihalyi, 2014).
Is giftedness inherited or learned?
Empirical research to support answer
Justification of the study
Certain individuals are of the opinion that everybody is born with a blank slate, and that giftedness comes about due to the learning process by enabling a positive environment for learning. On the contrary, some scholars argue that an inheritable natural ability (Csikszentmihalyi, 2014). It is necessary to address the issue and come up with a concrete conclusion on whether giftedness is learned or innate.
Systematic Literature Review (SLR) will be used in answering the research question. It involves using both qualitative and quantitative studies with the aim of maximizing on the benefits and minimizing the weaknesses associated with each study (Cope, 2014).
Validity, reliability and credibility of the study
( use PICOS )
The rigour of the research study will be established using statistical methods, engaging other researchers to reduce biasness, and performing data triangulation (Pereira, 2012).
