Abstract

The article presents the results of a study of the development of the theoretical foundations of the way of thinking in gifted primary school students and its relationship with intellectual ability. We provide the analysis of connection of theoretical thinking development and general intellectual abilities during studying in primary school in gifted students. We assume that the result of solving problems in theoretical thought is linked with the level of intelligence in gifted children. Based on the results of this study, we obtained an idea of the extent to which theoretical thinking diagnostic techniques can be used to identify gifted students in elementary school. Analysis of the study results also showed that the results obtained by the methods of diagnosis of the theoretical level of thinking can be the basis for the implementation of the indicative forecast of the intellectual abilities of gifted students in the next few years.
