Krstic, Marina; Kevereski, Ljupco
Research in Pedagogy, v5 n1 p42-51 2015
Various pressures and influences of family, society, media, and other agents of socialization on individuals and their own pressures, associated with setting unrealistic goals and requirements lead to a life filled with worry, frustration and guilt, (Ferbezer, 2002). Perfectionism emerges especially as a negative trend in the behaviour of a person, appearing in childhood when an individual performs different roles in society. There are a number of factors that lead to the emergence of perfectionism in gifted but, Slaney and Ashby (1996) also suggest that parents consider that the style of education is a major factor in the development of perfectionism in gifted children. In this research the impact of socio-economic status of the families on the appearance of perfectionism in gifted children will be examined and researched. The results are expected to help improve the condition and acceptability of the gifted students in primary education.
