Silverblank, Francine
The purpose of this study was to compare male high school seniors who are talented in mathematics with male high school seniors who are talented in English as to sense of responsibility, level of anxiety, and sociability. The following hypotheses were tested: (1) No difference will be found in levels of responsibility between male high school seniors who are talented in mathematics and those talented in English; (2) Male high school seniors who are talented in English will have a higher level of anxiety than those who are talented in mathematics; (3) Male high school seniors who are talented in English will score higher on sociability than those who are talented in mathematics. Eighty male high school seniors were subjects. The IPAT Anxiety Scale was used to measure anxiety and the Gordon Personal Profile was used to measure sense of responsibility and level of sociability. Data were subjected to analysis by Analysis of Variance. Findings include: (1) Hypothesis 1 was supported; (2) Hypothesis 2 was not accepted as established for this study; (3) Hypothesis 3 was accepted as established for this study. (Author/CK)
