Vietnam is an East Asian country which has been immensely influenced by Confucian ideology. This heritage has been transferred from generation to generation, and has greatly influenced the development of a valuing of, and love of, learning in Vietnamese intellectually gifted adolescents. The purpose of the present study is to construct and test a specific scale to reflect Confucian values endorsed by intellectually gifted adolescents and their age-peers not identified as gifted in Vietnam. A total of 352 high school students (intellectually gifted adolescents = 50.6%, and students not identified as gifted = 49.4%) participated in a survey containing 40 items that were selected from previous studies published in scholarly English journals on the adoption of Confucian values in various cultural settings. Those items were translated from English into Vietnamese by a NAATI (The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) registered professional and back-translated by two other translators.
