Title

Overexcitability in Gifted Sexually Diverse Populations

Description

This study examined overexcitability in 100 gifted university students. Females scored higher on emotional and sensual overexcitability (OE), and males scored higher on intellectual, imaginational, and psychomotor OE. When examined by orientation within gender, however, nonheterosexual females scored higher than heterosexual females in psychomotor, significantly higher in intellectual, slightly higher in sensual, and slightly lower in emotional and imaginational OE. Heterosexual males scored significantly higher than nonheterosexual males in psychomotor, higher in sensual, slightly higher in imaginational, lower in intellectual, and slightly lower in emotional OE. Each population appears to be unique, and sexual diversity is one factor that seems to have a significant effect on the lives of gifted students.
