Competition and the Adjustment of Gifted Children: A Matter of Motivation.
Udvari, Stephen J.; Schneider, Barry H.
Roeper Review, v22 n4 p212-16 Jun 2000
This article discusses gifted children's attitudes toward competition and draws a distinction between task-oriented competitive behavior, which is motivated by a desire to improve performance, and other-referenced competitive behavior, which is motivated primarily by a desire to outdo an opponent. Teachers and parents are urged to emphasize and reward task-oriented competitiveness. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
