LOPEZ, Verónica. Social Intelligence: Contributions From its Study in Children and Adolescents With High Cognitive Abilities. Psykhe [online]. 2007, vol.16, n.2, pp. 17-28. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282007000200002.

The construct of "social intelligence" has aroused reiterated debates throughout the history of Psychology. One way to contribute to this debate is through the study of social reasoning in people with high cognitive abilities. The scores of 50 Spanish-speaking children and adolescents with high cognitive abilities in two measures of social reasoning were compared to age- and sex-matched peers of normotypical cognitive ability. The results indicate that high-ability children and adolescents present a significatively superior performance compared to their peers in tasks related with social intelligence, especially in reasoning processes which involve understanding and defining the social problem, planning social strategies and anticipating social consequences.
