Basic capacities can be modified or circumvented by deliberate practice: A rejection of talent accounts of expert performance

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (3):413-414 (1998)
Abstract
To make genuine progress toward explicating the relation between innate talent and high levels of ability, we need to consider the differences in structure between most everyday abilities and expert performance. Only in expert performance is it possible to show consistently that individuals can acquire skills to circumvent and modify basic characteristics (talent).
