Self-Perceptions and Needs as a Function of Type of Academic Ability and Gender.
Ablard, Karen E.
Roeper Review, v20 n2 p110-15 Dec 1997
A study of 174 academically talented eighth-grade students found they had significantly higher academic self-concepts than their peers but similar social self-concepts. Results found that talented females had stronger needs for achievement, dominance, and endurance than typical females, and high verbal students had less interest in relationships with the opposite sex than others.
