Leroux, Janice A.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v11 n3 p3-18 Spr 1988
Questionnaires and interviews completed by 60 gifted adolescents indicated that both sexes were highly sensitive to societal pressures. Females accepted their body image, social image, and inner emotions better than the males who perceived themselves as having poorer peer relationships and less leadership potential. Case studies illustrate representative sex differences. (Author/VW)
