This study examined the career aspirations of 227 gifted early adolescents. Results showed that girls were interested in a significantly greater number of careers and showed greater gender-role flexibility in their career aspirations than did boys. Boys aspired to careers that were significantly higher in education required and prestige level than girls. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
