Abstract

The paper aims to contribute to the knowledge about the leadership potential of talented students. The intention is to establish distinctive traits of talented students in the areas of music, art, sports, and mathematics in the following aspects of leadership: affinity for authenticity and creativity, basic personality traits, achievement motive, and emotional intelligence. The research was conducted on a convenience sample of 473 participants attending high schools for talented, using the following instruments: preconscious activity scale (PAS), Big Five Inventory (BFI), scale of achievement motive (MOP 2002) and a scale of emotional competences. The research results suggest various constellations of leadership dispositions in relation to the domain. Within the domain of sports and music, there are specific characteristics relating to public performance. Introspection and the intrapsychic plan are important characteristics of the mathematics and art domains. The domain of music and art are characterized by greater interest for innovation and diversity, while the domain of sports and mathematics revolve around “playing by set rules”. It is concluded that the leadership potential of talented students can be precisely observed and adequately supported only if it is located within the framework of individual domains.
