A comparative study, using a quantitative methodology, was conducted with the aim of determining the cognitive and psychosocial variables that differentiate a group of high school students with outstanding intellectual aptitudes from another with average aptitudes. 220 students participated; 64 were classified as outstanding. It was determined that the intellectual variables are the ones that discriminate both groups of students which implies that the outstanding students detection models should mainly consider the evaluation of intellectual aspects.
