Abstract

The self-actualization scores of 63 junior high students were measured with the Reflections of Self By Youth (ROSY) and the Maslowian Scale. 14 students identified as gifted did not score significantly higher than their more intellectually average peers; however, gifted girls scored slightly higher on the ROSY and two Maslowian Scale subscales. Seventh-grade students scored significantly higher only on the Maslowian Scale-Psychological subscale. Raven's Standard Progressive Matrices identified 10 students among the average group who scored between the 90th and 99th percentiles suggesting some gifted students may have been unidentified.
