Melik-Pashaev A.A.
Doctor of Psychology, заведующий лабораторией психологических проблем художественного развития Психологического института РАО, Moscow, Russia

It characterize him as being originally creative and committed to the fullness of self-realization. From this point of view, the “creative giftedness “ can not act as a separate type of giftedness, along with the intellectual, artistic, etc.

Keywords: giftedness, statistical norm, axiological norm, “the internal energy of the soul”, development, creativity, artistic talent, types of giftedness

Column: General questions of growing up
