Conducted interviews with 30 gifted adolescents at three strategic decision-making points. Found 20 factors that subjects identified as important to their career decisions. Factors clustered into five groups: sensitivity to others' expectations, perfectionism, developmental issues, superior intelligence, and multipotentiality. (Author/NB)
