19 - Do Personality Types Predict Psychiatric Symptoms of Gifted Students?

Friday, Nov 10
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

This study investigated if gifted students’ personality types predict psychiatric symptoms, including attention to the type of giftedness (academic vs. creative) and whether gender moderates the relationship between the personality types and psychiatric symptoms. The results from 232 gifted Korean middle school students showed personality types acted as an indicator in determining likely psychiatric symptoms. The type of giftedness and gender moderated the associations between personality types and psychiatric symptoms. This study is significant in understanding how gender and type of giftedness influence the relationship between personality types and psychiatric symptoms when treating gifted students.
