    Judging from the titles, I would assume the Howard, Resnick, and Saphier articles are the ones that provide the foundation for the assertion.

    In the reality based community, we need to assess the evidence before rejecting the conclusion...

    •  Most of those cites are pretty old - 60s to 90s (0+ / 0-)

      with one from 2005.

      I cannot find the Saphier paper online, but the journal name does not sound like a peer reviewed scientific journal.

      Based on the abstract, Resnick admits that he is just assuming that "effort actually creates ability".  See

      The Howard "paper" is actually a newsletter from an advocacy organization.

      In short, there is nothing here you would give the slightest weight to if it did not say things you want to believe.
