Abstract:


This study examined the future perception of gifted individuals and society about gifted individuals. The study was carried out with a phenomenological approach, one of the qualitative research methods. The sample of this study was gathered from gifted students and adults in İstanbul and Kocaeli. The result of the research exhibits that gifted individuals were perceived as researcher-type people by both themselves and adults. Also, there is a need to improve gifted students’ educational process and reveal their potential skills. In addition, although people generally have a positive perspective on the future of gifted young people, it is frequently emphasized that the conditions they live in are worrisome.
