dc.description.abstract The primary objective of the study was to ascertain whether the cognitive and personality structure of intellectually gifted students differs from that of intellectually average students. In order to investigate the problem a random sample was drawn of registered students at the Rand Afrikaans University. These students were allocated to one of five categories according to their score (IQ) on the New South African Group Test of Intelligence. The total sample consisted of 500 male and 500 female subjects with IQ s ranging from 115 to 139. The following psychometric test results were used in the statistical investigation of the hypotheses and postulates: the Senior Aptitude Test (SAT), the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16-PF), the PHSF Relations Questionnaire, and the Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes (SSHA). Intellectual giftedness is, regardless of sex, found to be positively correlated with high scores in the following cognitive functions: general level of cognitive functioning; the ability to solve mathematical problems accurately and quickly; associational fluency; speed and accuracy of perception of differences and similarities between visual configurations; inductive reasoning; and general reasoning and spatial visualisation. As far as personality is concerned, it is found that the intellectually gifted and the intellectually above average are very similar indeed. en
