Comparing Overexcitabilities of Gifted and Non-Gifted School Children in Hong Kong: Does Culture Make a Difference?

Description

Overexcitabilities (OEs) are ways that an individual experiences the world and can be understood as channels of information flow. The current study examined the profile of OEs among a group of Hong Kong children. Participants included 229 non gifted and 217 gifted children. OEs were measured using the Overexcitability Questionnaire II. Results indicated that there were differences between the gifted and the non gifted groups in all OE subscales. Gender differences were also identified. Females, in both gifted and non gifted groups, have a significantly higher score in Emotional OE when compared to males. In addition, gifted females also scored significantly higher than their male counterparts in Sensual OE. Results of this study were compared to a group of American children (based on C.L. Tieso’s work on overexcitabilities in 2007). The implications and limitations of this study are presented.
