2.7.1 Roles of giftedness, gender, and age in overexcitabilities: Highlighting instrument-sensitive group difference in emotional overexcitability

This review aims at identifying roles of giftedness, gender, and age on overexcitabilities (OEs). Included studies are highly consistent in that 1) females score higher in EOE and SOE, 2) TOE is higher in older groups, and MOE probably decreases with development. Moreover, TOE has been identified as the most consistent characteristic differentiating the gifted from their counterparts. While for EOE, the selection of questionnaires (OEQ or OEQ-II) is contributing to the variation of the results, indicating that the simplification from OEQ to OEQ-II may have restricted its application in investigating the group differences between the gifted and non-gifted.
