To investigate the demographic characteristics of the exceptional samples and to provide relevant statistical data related to the standardization work currently underway to develop indigeneous tests for identifying creative, gifted and talented children in Hong Kong. The sub-group studies will include comparisons of 1) bright academically able to underachieving bright; 2) highly creative to less creative; 3) intellectually superior to intellectually inferior (mentally handicapped); 4) creative/intelligent maladjusted children (with emotional and behavioural problems) to creative/intelligent normal children (without behavioural problems).
