The heritage of Confucianism has been immensely spread in East Asian countries, including Vietnam. This philosophy has been transferred from preceding generations and has influenced the Vietnamese way of life, especially the love for learning. Vietnamese gifted adolescents are part of the philosophically Confucian affected communal. This study aims to construct a specific scale to measure the influence of Confucianism in this group of precocious students. A total of 354 high school students (intellectually gifted adolescents = 50.6%, and students not identified as gifted = 49.4%) participated in a survey containing 40 items. Exploratory factor analysis using oblique rotation (SPSS 17.0) eliminated seven items and yielded four correlated factors with high factor loadings. This pioneer study is hoped to provide a foundation for further research to examine the adoption of traditional Confucian values in Vietnam and in East Asian countries or countries where a large number of East Asian migrants reside.
