Summary

A final report was given of a three-part study that was made to determine differences in the attitudes, interests, and values of gifted high school students in relation to their total environment. A research design was developed to delineate the characteristics of these gifted students, especially those characteristics which differentiate the three profile types of creative intellectual, studious, and social leaders. Superior students from the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades were assigned to one of the three profile groups on the basis of self-classification. Comparative analysis was performed throughout the study by drawing a contrast between two 11th-grade groups, one average in ability and the other superior. Formal and informal measures were used to acquire the results. It was concluded that the creative intellectuals showed strong, self-directed interest in learning and a great willingness to deal with both the subjective data of the self and the objective data of the larger world. The studious, while also showing a concern for ideas and a desire to learn, mainly confined their efforts to completing teacher-directed assignments. The social leaders preferred to make their impact felt on people rather than in the realm of ideas. It was felt, that on the basis of these findings, new guidelines for educational strategies should be developed to take into account differences among the gifted. A related report is ED 003 182.
