Piirto, Jane; Montgomery, Diane; May, James
High Ability Studies, v19 n2 p141-153 Dec 2008
The differences between US (Ohio) gifted and talented high school students and South Korean gifted and talented high school students on the "Overexcitabilities Questionnaire II" (OEQ II) were investigated. The OEQ II was administered to 227 Ohio identified gifted and talented high school students (M = 88, F = 139) and to 341 high school students from four specialized high schools (one for science, one for foreign language, and two for the arts) in Seoul, Korea (M = 117; F = 224). Multiple analysis of variance by gender and country revealed that Korean males and females scored higher in psychomotor OE and that US males and females scored higher in imaginational OE. No differences were found in intellectual OE, emotional OE, or sensual OE. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
