Three Wishes of Gifted and Nongifted Adolescents.
Chiu, Jih-Perng P.; Nevius, John R.
Three wishes of 69 gifted and 66 nongifted adolescents were solicited in a group situation. The findings indicated that personal wishes were of the most concern for both gifted and nongifted adolescents, and that males of both groups tended to value material possessions more often than did females. A significant between-groups difference revealed that gifted Ss expressed more altruistic and fewer goal wishes than their nongifted peers. It is suggested that this kind of data may assist teachers in perceiving students' psychological as well as social orientations, which may in turn facilitate teacher-student and parent-child relations.
