Abstract


Gifted and talented children show differences in many respects compared to normal developing children. It is
expected that these differences may also arise in daily life of all these children. In this research, it is aimed to
investigate that whether the responses of three wishes questions of the gifted and talented and normal developing
children differ or not. The sample of the study consisted of 54 gifted, 28 talented, and 46 normal developing children.
Quantitative and qualitative research methods have been used together in the research. The main research question
was as follows: "What would you wish if you had three wishes". Received responses were coded and analyzed by
chi-square test according to the response types of children with gifted, talented, and normal developing children. As a
result of the research, it was determined that the answers given by the gifted, talented, and normal developing
children to the three right wishes differed.
