AbstractThis study assessed the self-perceptions of 432 gifted students regarding their family environments and their talent areas. Family environmental variables included parental expectations to achieve, parents' encouragement to be independent, and family cohesion. Talent areas included academic skills, creativity, and leadership. The conjectures that academic achievement could be enhanced by parental expectations, as well as family cohesion, and that creativity could be enhanced by encouragement to be independent were not fully supported by the regression analyses. However, family environmental variables did predict students' perceived talent areas, especially in leadership, and family cohesion was the consistent significant predictor. Implications of the findings are discussed with reference to cross-cultural research, but caution needs to be exercised in the interpretation of these results, as data were collected only on student perceptions.
