This study sought comprehension of several specifics concerning the self-concept of gifted high school students in France. Eighty-four gifted high school students (IQ = 130) between the ages of 13 and 18 were matched with 84 nongifted high school students possessing the same gender, family background, and academic characteristics. Each of these adolescents completed the GPS technique ("Genèse des Perceptions de Soi" [Genesis of the Self-Concept]), the Self-Description Questionnaire II (SDQII), and the self-evaluation questionnaire concerning the perception of self and of giftedness. Clusters of adolescents were formed on the basis of data provided by these three tools. Using a descending hierarchical classification, results suggested a distinct four-cluster solution, as well as differences between clusters depending on IQ score, gender, socioeconomic background, and academic performance.
