Abstract: Young people in Singapore have been urged to take an active interest in politics and nation-building. A survey was carried out on a sample of gifted adolescents to find out their perceptions of the expectations from self, parents, classmates, school and society in nation-building. The results show that the gifted adolescents wanted and were quite sure that their parents, school and society expect them to excel in academic studies and eventually to have a comfortable professional practice. They showed reluctance in taking on a political career but showed interest in social issues, national and international affairs.
