Labels of Giftedness and Gender-Typicality: Effects on Adults' Judgments of Children's Traits.
Halpern, Jennifer J.; Luria, Zella
Psychology in the Schools, v26 n3 p301-10 Jul 1989
College students (n=80) rated children labeled as male/female, "gifted"/"average" and gender-typical/gender-atypical in academic interests on 30 adjective scales. Children labeled "gifted" were rated closer to "odd" than to "fits in well." Gender-atypical boys were considered more "odd" and gender-atypical girls were rated less "odd" than were gender-typical children. (Author/PB)
