The Self-Concept of Talented Adolescents in an Intensive Summer Program: Implications for Programming.
Stocking, Vicki B.; And Others
The Self-Description Questionnaire-II (SDQ-II) was used to assess the self-concept of 148 very talented students during an intensive summer academic program. The domain of Physical Abilities was the only area in which students' mean scale scores were below the mean. In fact, a significant number of students (approximately one-third) scored two standard deviations below the mean in perceptions of Physical Abilities. Other areas which had a relatively high rate of students scoring below two standard deviations below the mean included Opposite-sex Relations and Emotional Stability. Females rated their self-concepts in Physical Appearance and General School significantly higher than males, and males rated their self-concept in Honesty-trustworthiness higher than females. Implications for programing are discussed. (Author)
