Abstract

This research paper presents an analysis and discussion of Abraham Tannenbaum's five factors of giftedness as evidenced in the life of the eminent American painter, Georgia O'Keeffe. It includes a brief biography of Tannenbaum, a description of his theory, and an analysis of the existence of those factors in the life of O'Keeffe. Examined are the factors of general ability, special ability, nonintellective traits, environmental factors, and chance factors. In this case, it is evident that achieved eminence did depend, to some degree, upon the interweaving of these factors. Thus, they should receive consideration as part of the identification process in talented and gifted programs.
