Luftig, Richard L.; Nichols, Marci L.
Roeper Review, v13 n3 p148-53 Apr 1991
This study, with 64 gifted students (grades 4-8) and 432 nongifted peers, found that, although gifted boys were the most popular group, gifted girls were the least popular. Gifted boys were perceived by peers to be physically attractive, less aggressive, more creative, and smarter than other children. (Author/DB)
