Jenkins-Friedman, Reva; Murphy, Douglas L.
Roeper Review, v11 n1 p26-30 Oct 1988
Actual/idealized and actual/public self-concept coherence was used as a measure of adjustment to being labeled gifted and subsequently participating in a gifted education program for 128 fourth through eighth graders. Results indicated overall better adjustment was significantly related to greater coherence between self- and ideal-self perceptions. (Author/JW)
