PERCEPTIONS OF INTERPERSONAL COMPETENCIES IN GIFTED ADOLESCENTS
[VNIMANIE INTERPERSONALNEJ KOMPETENCIE U NADANYCH ADOLESCENTOV]
The aim of the paper is to present the basic empirical knowledge of social self-concept, self-image, peer relations, gifted learners compared to those who want to achieve something, or are average. We emphasized research findings, which are a part of the theoretical analysis of authors such as Bain, Bell (2004), Austin, Draper (1981), Dauber, Benbow (1990) and Lee, Olszewski-Kubilius, Thomson (2012). Based on a public opinion consensus which espouses the notion that talented individuals are more prone to emotional and social difficulties, we have presented findings of studies concerned with social self-concept, self-image, gifted students and peer relationships in adolescents.
