Intelligence, personality, and privilege are the strongest predictors of academic achievement. These variables work in interaction with one another to enhance or detract from achievement, life satisfaction, and well-being. Educators working with talented young people need to understand how combinations of intelligence, personality, and privilege can be assessed, interpreted, and used to understand the optimal academic and career pathways for their students. How can students be encouraged to develop their abilities and their positive personality characteristics? How can educators help their students to find the cultural, social, and financial resources needed to overcome lack of privilege related to their gender, race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, citizenship, age, physical ability and characteristics, and geographic origin? This presentation highlights the possibilities for truly understanding the strengths and challenges of our students.
