BOOST BREAKFAST CLUB WITH SCOTT BARRY KAUFMAN, Ph.D
Scott Barry Kaufman, Ph.D.
BOOST Collaborative's Program Coordinator Rachel Ruiz had the pleasure of interviewing Scott Barry Kaufman, an all around funny and inspiring guy with a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Yale University. Kaufman proposed the Theory of Personal Intelligence, which redefines intelligence as the dynamic interplay of an individual's engagement and ability over time in the pursuit of personal goals. With this broadened definition, passion and persistence become essential elements of intelligence.
Q- What sparked your interest in the topic of child giftedness?
A- When I was young I had a learning disability, an auditory disability, and I was placed in special education. I always wondered: What does it mean to be gifted? What does it mean to be learning disabled? I always looked at people of varying ability levels in the classroom. I remember early on I was fascinated with the causes of these differences and how mutable they were.
