When looking at an individual and deciphering if he/she can be classified as a gifted person, there are several criteria that one needs to take into consideration. For identification purposes, educators and other professionals no longer solely look at one’s fixed intelligence but other aspects that when stimulated and nurtured can grow a person’s talents whether cognitive, intuitive/creative, or motor/sensory expressions. “Growth of intelligence depends on the interaction between our biological inheritance and our environmental opportunities to use that inheritance” (Clark, 1997, p. 26). Because of this, careful considerations need to be made to ensure that individuals are afforded the opportunities to reach his/her full potential.
any people care about what others think about them, while others maybe their self around anyone and not even care about what others think. In the quote, written by Geisel, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” This quote tells us to be who we are no matter what.

Having an understanding of the limitations can strengthen how the social worker applies the key features and assumptions of the case. The key features of the person-centred approach are empathy, unconditional positive regard and self-actualisation. Empathy allows the therapist to view the world from the client’s perspective. The client’s world will include their values, experiences, feelings and perception (Miller, 2012, p.46). For the social worker, this means being able to examine everything…
clarifies her view about what makes us persons. By us she means all humans who live in this earth, and they are called in our contemporary life "persons." She begins her argument by saying that biologists do not have the final say regarding what makes us persons, so the philosophers must be placed in the account as well. Baker explains that neither souls, minds, bodies are what makes us special. The first person perspective is the only standard to be a person.
To start, Baker seems to agree…
The moon barely lit the muddy pathway ahead. Twisted twigs and fallen branches caught my ankle and I could feel them crunch underneath my worn out sandals-making it hard to walk. There was no sensible movement for miles on the abandoned ally, it was completely vacant, except for one ancient house on the far corner of the road. The boards creaked and moaned and threatened to collapse at any given moment. My heart skipped a beat, and the inside of my stomach churned into an unpleasant…
Carried: Purpose of Third Person
In Tim O’Brien’s:The Things They Carried, the narrator switches from a third person perspective to a first person perspective a few times. He does this to provide a general understanding of war as well as to detach himself from the truth.
In the first chapter, O’Brien uses the third person point of view to help the reader connect to all of the soldiers more easily. Since war is not a one-man job, this point of view symbolizes the idea that all the men were…

Third-Person Omniscient: An Unbiased Point of View
French short-story writer, Guy De Maupassant, is highly recognized for writing with the absence of sentiment towards the characters in his stories. In “The Necklace,” Maupassant narrates the story of Madame Mathilde Loisel, a “pretty and charming” middle-class woman who is deeply consumed by the desire of possessing an affluent lifestyle. The supporting characters that are mentioned within…
