Roland S. Persson, PhD, Professor of Educational Psychology, editorial board member of
Education Today (UK) and Gifted and Talented International (US), Editor-in-Chief of High
Ability Studies (ECHA/Routledge) 1998 – 2002 and contributor to many of the standard
handbooks and encyclopedic works on Giftedness/Talent and Gifted Education once started
out as a pianist and music educator, which prompted many questions on what musical
giftedness is.

It spurred him to seek answers by his own research, which led him to the field of
Psychology. Now 30 years later, he is working as Professor of Educational Psychology at
Jonkoping University in Sweden – still with a fervent interest in giftedness and talent. He is
well known internationally for both his music behavioural research and perhaps more so for
his study of gifted and talented individuals and their function in society.

Below his overview about the most important and relevant questions of giftedness can be read, aiming to
summarize the most crucial aspects of this issue from an international perspective.
