OLIVEIRA, Juliana Célia de  e  BARBOSA, Altemir José Gonçalves. Overexcitability instruments: a systematic review. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.66, n.1, pp. 117-134. ISSN 1809-5267.

Studies demonstrated that overexcitability (OE) is a strong predictor of giftedness. In order to perform a systematic review about OE instruments, articles containing terms overexcitability or overexcitabilities and assessment, measure or evaluation were retrieved in the databases CAPES Portal and Google Scholar. The scientific production about this issue seems to be increasing and it is predominantly composed of research reports conducted with samples of participants with giftedness. Only five measures of SE were identified: Overexcitability Questionnaire, Overexcitability Questionnaire Two, Me Scale, ElemenOE, and Adult Questionnaire. Criterion validity and internal consistency are the psychometric properties more described in the literature. Strengths, limitations, and the more appropriate uses of these tools are emphasized. The use of them to identify giftedness is emphasized.
