A whole lot of everything
A lot of little changes recently. The database is now compliant with the EU cookie-policy, the first "FAQ" question has been answered, but more importantly, today I count 374 articles. I'm so glad the database was able to grow so quickly.

Marburg Giftedness project
Were up to 322 database entries!. This is mainly due to some entries from the Marburg Giftedness Project. This project started in Germany in 1989 by screening over 7000 third graders (about 9 years old) with 3 well-established standardized intelligence tests. The top 2 percent of this group was selected as the gifted group, a comparison group of average intelligence was matched for as many variables as possible. Six years later (when the groups were 15) they were tested again with 3 IQ tests!. This is one of the most well-defined studies into intellectual giftedness I have seen while gathering research articles for this database. I encourage you to read the findings of this study, they provide unique insights due to the completely unselected group of gifted individuals they investigate. Since the participants are now adults, you will also find articles about adult traits. Interesting details: the participants are not aware of their group status... If you search for "Rost" (the main author), you will find these articles in the database.
