Abstract

The study aimed to identify the level of coexistence with pressures among a sample of talented and average students at schools in Ajloun area, Jordan in relation to some demographic variables, such as gender, class, educational level of parents, and academic achievement. To achieve this, the coexistence with pressures test, which was prepared according to psychological counseling and developed by Davis, Eshelman, and McKay (2000), was used. The validity and reliability of the test was tested. The sample consisted of 291 (96 talented students and 195 average students), who were selected by the random stratified method from high basic and secondary schools. The data was analyzed by using the arithmetic means, standard deviation, T. Test, ANOVA and the correlation coefficients. The results showed that the level of coexistence with pressures between the talented and average students was high and more than the medium, and there were statistically significant differences (α≤0.05) in the total degree of coexistence with pressures between talented and average students attributed to students type in favor of the average students. There were not any statistically significant differences in the total degree of coexistence with pressures between talented and average students attributed to the class variable. However, there were statistically significant differences (α≤0.05) in the total degree of coexistence with pressures among talented students attributed to the gender variable in favor of females, and there were statistically significant differences (α≤0.05) in the total degree of coexistence with pressures among average students attributed to gender variable in favor of males. Also, there were not any statistically significant differences in the total degree of coexistence with pressures between talented and average students attributed to parents’ education variable. There was a positive correlation coefficient in the level of coexistence with pressures degrees between the average students and the academic achievement. The results were discussed in the light of the theoretical framework and previous studies. In view of the findings, the study concluded with some recommendations.
